On March 16th, the youth driven Our Voices Matter Project ECHO led a discussion that was meaningful, enlightening and honest on “Toxic Masculinity” at the Tarblooders Barbershop in Glenville. It was a great opportunity to bring our police, youth, and adults together to address shared concerns in our community. The talk was led by Pipeline Leader and Americorps member Chenoa Miller and students from Paul Dunbar Elementary School, and the poem “Toxic Masculinity” by Gerard McClain was recited. The talk was extremely well received by everyone, and the students are already planning the next session!
Special thanks to Sergeant Vincent Montague, Sergeant Desmond Anderson, and Officers Carmen Hall, Rashawn Rahim and Mansell Baker for your support of our youth and commitment to our community!
