[ARCHIVED] Trust Talk for Local High School and College Students Seeks Solutions to Gun Violence

High school and college students are invited to share their concerns about gun violence and mental health among teens with local law enforcement at a Trust Talk on Thursday, April 27 at 6 p.m. on the west campus of Forsyth Technical Community College. The talk is sponsored by the city of Winston-Salem Human Relations/Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Department and the Human Relations Commission. 

Winston-Salem Police Chief William Penn and Forsyth Tech Police Chief Carolyn McMackin will be among the presenters. The Human Relations/DEI Department has been organizing trust talks since 2011 as a way to foster communication between law enforcement and the community. Feedback from the talk will be incorporated into police training, said Wanda Allen-Abraha, the director of the Human Relations/DEI Department.

The Winston-Salem Youth Advisory Council will hand out information packets to attendees with local mental health resources. The Youth Advisory Council was created by the City Council in 1989 to give high school students an opportunity to become more aware of local government and become involved in local issues by participating in community activities. Youth Advisory Council members also participate in approximately 40 hours of community service and select an annual project to implement. 

Those interested in attending the talk must register by calling Pam Peoples-Joyner at 336-773-7962.
