The live town hall meeting, part of the station’s My Future, My Choice initiative, will center on topics relevant to urban youth. Parents who have lost children to gun violence will be given an opportunity to be heard.
“In April, we embarked on My Future, My Choice to help spread a message of hope to young people” said Bert Medina, WPLG’s president.
“We made a commitment to show them they don’t have to resort to gun violence. We are fully invested in this endeavor, and we want this town hall meeting to also serve as a youth summit where young minds can hear, contribute to the dialogue and feel free to respond to ideas for solutions.”
