First, a thank you for those of you who generously supported the YMP Fall Showcase at the Capital Club on Nov. 16. Many of the summer 2017 students attended with their families, guests and sponsors; enjoyed wonderful food and beautiful city views; and screened their documentaries and read from their powerful work. (All work available at jxnpulse.com.) We appreciate you so much for helping young people create powerful, honest stories about their communities.
Please include the Youth Media Project in your year-end giving to help YMP have space and resources to continue producing year-rounddocumentaries on their education needs and Mayor Chokwe A. Lumumba’s first year, as well as produce a series of crime-prevention neighborhood dialogues to build on their crime-prevention journalism to date leading up to a big YMP Youth Crime Summit in late spring. And please come visit the YMP learning space in Capital Towers when you get a chance. Write firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time.
