In our culture, our community and our homes, we tell our kids that violence is not okay, that it’s not all right to hit — and yet, all too often, we then put on a violent movie or video game that encourages violence as an entertainment form.
This double message confuses people and undermines our best effort at preventing violence.
We‘ve got to do better for our youth and our community.
We are See It Stop It Parents as Leaders in Pagosa and we are committed to ending violence in our lives and our community. We are hosting an important community forum — a series of three workshops to address:
1) Understanding the roots of youth violence.
2) Building alliances with youth.
3) Creating community partnerships to end violence.
Workshops will be on Wednesday nights, Nov. 2, 9 and 16, from 6-8 p.m., at the Pagosa Springs Youth Center.
Childcare and light snacks will be provided.
Come partner with us as we explore the roots of violence and reach for solutions.
