Teen Summit “No More Whispers”
On May 12th, the Union City Youth Commission will be hosting the teen summit “No More Whispers”. “No More
Whispers” is a day for young adults to come together to unite against issues teens battle with on a daily basis. Teens deal with rumors, pressure from peers/ parents, being bullied, depression, alienation, abuse at home or from boyfriends/girlfriends and they need to know they are not alone and there is help. This event offers workshops and teen roundtables such as Cyber-bullying, Body
Image, Be Positive, Sexting and much more. “No More Whispers!” means teens can come and speak out about these topics or listen to others and learn how they have
handled these problems in their lives. This is not a day for judgment but a day of understanding, connection and
unity. It’s time for the teen voices to be heard! The event will be catered by Fuddruckers and as a treat the teens
will have a live performance from YouTube star Jenny Suk. It will be held atthe Ruggieri Senior Center from 10 am – 3 pm.
