Over the years, senseless acts of violence have affected our entire nation. The recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, horrified parents across the world, as mindless violence made its way directly into the heart of a place that had long been considered safe space for our children – an elementary school that could have been any elementary school across the country. Fear quickly steered the national conversations towards demands for action. The question, however, rests in determining what types of action will protect all children while also bolstering preventive measures on and off school campuses.
In establishing the Joint Roundtable on Youth Safety, Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez and Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho joined community leaders across the County to declare with deliberate action and a unified voice that enough is enough.
