Together with community leaders and law enforcement, Kids on the Move for Success is organizing a Town Hall Community Meeting on March 17, 2018 at the Exchange Park Recreation Center from 1 pm to 4 pm to continue the dialogue on how we can protect students in and out of the classroom. The agenda will focus on the broader issue of youth safety which includes bullying, the ability to get on and off the bus without fear, classroom discipline which encourages learning, plus so much more. We will be collaborating with Georgia Student Alliance for Social Justice (GSASJ) Group and the youth in memory of the Parkland, Florida school shooting and the safety in our communities at the March for Our Lives on March 24, 2018.
