MCU congregations are changing the narrative of black youth and families who are court involved. Our 2019 Public Meeting, When
They #SeeUsSTL, offers the opportunity to hold public officials accountable on three initiatives:
- Raise the Age Now Join the coalition to give this recently-passed law
keeping 17-year-olds out of adult prisons in 2021 an on-time start.
- Restore the St. Louis City Mayor’s Office Commission on Children,
Youth, and Families and hire a Commissioner of Youth Services; and
- Unlock the Vote MO, which restores voting rights to 90,000 Missouri
voters immediately upon their release from prison, and truly expunges juvenile records.
Join us on Sunday, November 3 from 3-4:30pm at Vashon High School, 3035 Cass Ave., St. Louis, MO 63106 (Google Maps link: https://goo.gl/maps/7cr8dHjeBcsXoFiN7)
