Our Voices Matter | Toxic Masculinity
The Black Shield Police Association
Last Saturday, the Black Shield Police Association was proud to attend the Our Voices Matter discussion forum on "Toxic Masculinity."
This forum was led by Pipeline Leader & AmeriCorps member Chenoa Miller and students from Paul Dunbar Elementary School recited a poem written by Gerard McClain.
This monthly series engages youth in a process to help youth identify issues that they care about, while developing strategies towards a positive solution. Students meet with P.O. Hall, the police liaison to Our Voices Matter.
These students also learn how to engage in Project ECHO, a revolutionary model which aims to reduce health disparities and positively impact urban communities; this is a partnership with University of New Mexico and Baldwin Wallace College.
This was a highly informative and well-received event.
