This event will highlight the importance of working as a community to tackle the ever-growing issue of youth violence, youth gangs and youth crime in our community. Young people, adults and families are encouraged to attend this event and support youth development in their community.
The Youth Against Violence Dinner will also give an opportunity for community members to gather together after a long and hard fight against COVID-19 and will give attendees a chance to re-connect with their fellow community members.
The event will feature many guest speakers who have experience in the youth sector, we will also be inviting local MP's and the Mayor of Blacktown City Council to attend this event. We will also be inviting NSW Police, Youth Liaison Officer from Blacktown Police Station.
Family members who have lost their young person to youth violence will also be invited to share their experiences with the audience and give attendees an insight on the effect losing a loved one has.
We need to work together as a community to tackle a problem that is only getting worse, in New South Wales there is not one organisation that specifically targets youth violence, which is alarming as the amount of youth violence and youth crime activities are on the rise.
Support us, support the generation to come, and ultimately save the lives of young people state-wide, without the community we cannot achieve these goals and reduce youth violence, this is our time to make a change, IT ENDS WITH US!
