The Atlanta City Council has unanimously passed an ordinance co-sponsored by Councilmembers Natalyn Archibong, Andre Dickens and CT Martin approving $52,000 in funding to revive and support the Atlanta Youth Commission. The commission addresses issues regarding policy and legislation that impacts young people. After working to get a functioning board that meets regularly, the Atlanta Youth Commission is again meeting to serve the future of the city. "The Atlanta Youth Commission provides our youth with a forum to advance their ideas as to how they can shape our city," said Dickens. "Providing them with the needed funding will help advance their ability to engage more young leaders to make our city even greater."
