SEATTLE – Councilmember Bruce Harrell encourages Seattle youth to participate in the 25th Annual Youth and Law Forum this Saturday at the MLK F.A.M.E. Community Center in Seattle. Councilmember Harrell has participated in the Forum since it began in 1990. Seminars & workshops are all designed to help young people better understand the law and to develop better relationships with law enforcement officials.

“This city-wide forum provides youth an excellent opportunity to build their confidence and to make well-informed decisions about their career path and life choices,” said Harrell. “It can be a first step in positioning Seattle’s youth for today’s challenging and diverse job market.”

The forum is designed to educate youth and families about their legal rights, protection and responsibilities, law careers, court procedures, and resources. The event is open to all ages, including adults, and is free of charge. Pre-registration is encouraged at www.youthandlaw.com. A free barbeque lunch is included.
