The Huffington Post: Giving Teens a Place in Our Community

December 12, 2011

Judith Sandalow, executive director of Children’s Law Center, joins Huffington Post DC with a blog entry about making a place in the community for teenagers. In response to Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich’s recent comments about poor children lacking a work ethic, Sandalow calls for a broad discussion about teens’ roles.

“Gingrich’s campaign sound bite can be more than a flash in the pan: it can be the spark we need to start a conversation about how to give teens their rightful place in our community. As individuals we must commit to being positive role models for the young adults in our midst; as a city we must commit to providing them the resources they need to grow into positive role models themselves,” Sandalow writes.
