LoveRight3_webIn October 2012, NYC community members gathered at the Harlem Hospital Center for a conference titled “Love Right 2012.” In partnership with the Urban Resource Institute (URI), the 32nd Precinct of the New York City Police Department, and We All Really Matter (WARM), the conference helped young people in the community understand that they deserve to be treated in a loving and respectful way at all times.

With URI president Nathaniel Fields serving as moderator, the day was packed with presentations and workshops that encouraged teens not only to treat others with kindness and respect, but also to realize that they deserve to be treated the same way in return. Keynote speaker Tamron Hall, anchor of “NewsNation” on MSNBC, shared her personal commitment to educating youth about the impact of domestic violence.
