Why WAVE Empowering Youth Day Matters to Me

1995, San Diego, USA |

"When I interned with the San Diego District Attorney Office in 1995, I saw how the juvenile court interacts with youth at risk. I learned early on in my legal career the challenges of getting youth on the right track and the underlying factors for youth association with gangs. Unfortunately what they thought was a lifestyle choice became a short cut to crime and often premature, violent death. When I met Louise through her involvement with Spinal Cord Injury Canada and heard her story, I was thrilled to be able to support her cause." — Charles Gluckstein
