Cambridge Police Invite Community to Attend Youth Photovoice Exhibit

Youth researchers will present their community safety audit to the Cambridge City Council


9/5/2012

On Monday, September 10, youth action researchers from Cambridge will be presenting their Community Safety Audit and Photovoice Exhibit to the Cambridge City Council beginning at 5:00 p.m. in the Sullivan Chambers at Cambridge City Hall.

This summer, eleven Cambridge residents, ages 15 to 23, assisted in a community safety audit as part of a federal Community Transformation Grant awarded to a coalition of Middlesex County communities.  The youth documented the causes and effects of unsafe environments in the city through a method called Photovoice.

These researchers will be sharing their photographs and presenting their findings and recommendations with the community in six areas: City Maintenance, Residential Maintenance, Health, Crime, Homelessness, and Positive Prevention.

The exhibit opens at 4:30 p.m. and the presentation begins at 5:00 p.m.  Members of the Cambridge Police Department Command Staff, and city department heads and officials will be in attendance.
