Youth In Two States Are Heard


A team of Youth Journalism International students in Hartford is covering the first joint meeting of the only two youth cabinets formed by U.S. members of Congress so far.

Packed into a crowded conference room in U.S. Rep. John Larson's office, cabinet members from many high schools and a few colleges are talking via Skype with a similar cabinet created more recently by U.S. Rep. William Lacy Clay of Missouri.
You can follow what's going on via Senior Reporter Kiernan Majerus-Collins' ongoing account on Twitter @yjinternational.
There are also pictures at www.facebook.com/youthjournalism.
There will be more later.
If you're curious, here is a story about the formation of Larson's youth cabinet in 2009. And here is what they had to say right off the bat. Here is a story about youth worries about poverty.
Here are some more pictures from today's meeting:
