April 7-13, 2014
Minneapolis Youth Violence Prevention Week will be held April 7-13, 2014 and is part of a national public education initiative. Activities and events planned will call attention to the issue of youth violence, identify strategies to combat this public health epidemic, and promote the positive role youth and adults can play in making their communities and schools safer.
The City of Minneapolis is again collaborating with Minneapolis Public Schools (MPS), the Minneapolis Youth Coordinating Board's Youth Congress (MYC) and Peacemaker Minnesota in the campaign.
- The annual PeaceMaker Award Contest invites YOU to nominate a young person or adult who is working to promote peace and non-violence in a Minneapolis school. See the PeaceMaker Award 2014 page for more information, including a submission form and PDF flyer available for download!
Submit your nominations for the PeaceMaker Award Contest online here! Deadline is Friday, March 21, 2014!
- Learn more about SPEAK UP! Minneapolis here . SPEAK UP! is an anonymous tip-line that allows youth from across the city to phone or text reports of potential violence including weapons in schools, parks, libraries or other locations.
