CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–July 21, 2017. On Tuesday, July 25th at 1:30 pm, Youth for Black Lives meets with Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson at Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation, 5114 South Elizabeth. in an effort to discuss implementing their curriculum. Since their November 2016 cancellation of a planned protest in Mt. Greenwood for marginalized students of color attending Marist High school, the group established a series of demands that included developing a curriculum on the efforts of the Black Lives Matter movement, which every officer must take.

Eva Lewis, a co-organizer of Youth for Black Lives group affirms, “We recognize our power, and the power of our peers. We recognize that this is our fight because this is our future. Regardless of adversity, we will not stop loving, and supporting, each other,” She builds on the encouragement reinforced by Angela Davis at a recent speech at the University of Chicago last November, “Movements have to be led by young people.  That is the only way we will ever get anything done.” She asserts young people, women, femmes, have always been at the forefronts of movements.

Youth for Black Lives values transparency, and aims to be transparent about all progress involving the implementation of the newly constructed curriculum. As a result, they will conduct a press conference 30 minutes after the meeting, to disclose any new information regarding the curriculum.
