I made it to part of this meeting last night. A.M.E. church has a building on the corner of South Clinto and Miegs St (green building next to the NET office) that they want to use as a community space. At this time they are looking for feedback as to what that space could be used for.

There was a large crowed, not the typical people for a youth violence meeting, a lot of new people were brought in by the church, Naz, and Teen Enpowerment.,,,,,

I'll keep everyone updateing when theres a follow meeting.
