Got some info about a new youth group that is sponsoring a forum on Friday. Here’s the info:

“Be Heard”
A Youth Forum on violence in the media, drugs use, sex education, the school system & jobs
Friday May 25, 2007 @ 6:00pm
Community College of Southern Nevada, Cheyenne Campus

Michael Flores is an emerging youth leader for the organization TRENDZ Inc. His interest in politics and community service has led him to joining an organization where his voice can be heard.

“Most adults don’t want to listen to what young people have to say. But we will no longer be ignored. There are issues in the community that we are concerned about and that need to be addressed. Through TRENDZ I plan to make sure that happens.”
