     3. Update on Milwaukee Youth Council Priorities: Youth Homelessness Litter Drunk Driving Youth Incarceration

Minutes note: Members continue the discussion regarding youth incarceration. They would like to hear the perspective of the Senator Lena Taylor and Judge Derek Mosley. As part of their discussion regarding the cause of youth incarceration the following points were expressed: lack of guidance, mentoring or the presence of the parents lack of coping skills peer pressure lack of knowledge about the justice system decision of "get out" or "stay out" racism (other porblems, over polizing, red lining) Mr. Owczarski mentioned that Milwaukee Youth Council could offer a report to the Common Council asking for some curse of action regarding Youth Incarceration. Regarding reckless driving, impaired driving or operating under the influence (OUI), members also expressed some of the reason why youth drive recklessly: to try to be cool among their peers, to get somewhere faster, because driver education is too expensive, not accessible.
