On Thursday, May 5th at 4:30 pm, the El Barrio/East Harlem Youth Violence Task Force, led by Council Member Viverito and local youth organizations, will hold the second in a series of community discussions to hear directly from young people and prominent leaders about the issue of violence in the neighborhood.  The event will be held at the Boys’ Club in East Harlem (321 East 111th Street) and will focus on the area between 106th and 116th Streets (from 5th Avenue to the East River).

We hope you will be able to join us as we continue to gather feedback and suggestions from local residents about how to meaningfully address the increase in violence among young people occurring in our community.

  1. Our young people are missing a variety of creative channels to manifest their talents and interests, to express their dreams, their fears and frustrations to ask their questions and make their needs known. We need theatre, music, dance, visual arts, crafts, homemaking (cooking, sewing, industrial arts) programs in school and after school.
