On January 22, 2014, Meridian launched a new coalition to help address youth safety recognizing that vehicle crashes are the number 1 killer of young people. The coalition has been named Meridian Advocates for Youth Safety (MAYS). MAYS will have its first meeting on February 13, 2014 at 4 pm at the Meridian Police Department. Everyone interested in being involved in youth safety is invited to participate. We are asking teens to be a part of this coalition, since we encourage their input and know they can engage in peer-to-peer advocacy regarding safety.
