LETTER FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
I want to say something. I want you to know, before I say it, I have thought long and hard about what to say, so please hear me out.
When things are not going good in the country, we complain about it, which is really human nature, but do we ever ask, "what did we do about it?" Well, I recently asked myself that question. The answer, (which was another question, much like Jesus answers you with another question,) was, "what can you and those around you do to make a difference?" Talk Topeka was born from those questions and answers.
It starts at STREET LEVEL. If our communities are not where we want them, it is up to us to do something about it. If you have a light out in a very potentially dangerous part of town, we need to address that. If you are getting robbed once a month, we need to address that. If you need city resources, or need to address something with the City of Topeka, we can do that.
In closing, I ask you to take a look at TalkTopeka.org, see what's there, and let me know if we can do anything else to keep our communities in the know. Remember, we are raising the next generation of leaders and we want them to be SAFE!
