1 Comment on The Importance of Youth in Neighborhood Councils

  1. Hi Lily,

    What an incredible website and impressive body of work! We got the chance to meet for a second at the Neighborhood Council Congress, my name is John DiGregorio and I am the VP of Communications and Outreach Chair for our the NC Budget Advocates. I sent an email to your mother a couple weeks ago, but hadn’t heard back so I wanted to reach out directly. Instagram will be my last resort!

    I would really like to discuss the work you’ve been doing so we can piggy back on it and get more young people involved in our NC System. I am going to be speaking to 500 students this Friday 10/6 at the Valor Academy (Panorama HS) in Panorama City to kick off this project.

    Aside from collaborating on youth engagement, I would really like to feature you on our new web-series ‘Faces of Change’. We’re going to be highlighting activists and community leaders around the City and I think the work you do is incredibly compelling and can continue to be a catalyst for positive change.

    Please, if you’ve got any interest, shoot me and email and we can continue the conversation! Have a great day!
