Kalamazoo youth are invited to engage in discussions centered around social justice, the role of police in the community, and creative solutions to policing issues we face in the community as part of the Critical Conversations program. Presented by Ford Motor Company and Kalamazoo Police Activities Athletic League (PAL).
Topics utilizing the program's GREAT Model will range from cultural and social norms to police brutality. They will help foster understanding of how youth fit into the greater landscape of the community and how they can play a role in significant positive change.
Kalamazoo PAL's mission, in partnership with the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety and community volunteers, is to help youth find their greatness through athletic, academic, and leadership development programs.
