Teens put it all "On the table"

   The Mayor's Youth Leadership Council hosted high school students from Akron and Summit county schools to discuss equity and social inclusion at a youth-led On the Table discussion on October 3rd.  The sometimes spirited conversation ended with a take-action plan to improve the problem.  Thanks to all who participated!
