On July 27th YASP took part in a Youth Action Assembly in collaboration with Philly Urban Creators. Three of our four leadership team members participated, with Terrance (TA) Williams and Romeeka Williams on the panel and Josh Glenn serving as the moderator. The panel addressed the impacts of mass incarceration on young people, especially the impact of locking up and charging juveniles as adults.
The event was covered by HuffPost Politics. Check out their video interview with TA, Reuben, Joanna and Jeaninne from Philly Urban Creators here (skip to 13:30 for their interview).
