Even though kids can’t vote, they’re the top priority for a coalition of nonprofits. The Nashville Child and Youth Collaborative has a released a five-point agenda for candidates in the city’s mayoral race. “We believe a great city is measured by how it supports its children and youth and that the mayor is responsible for leading the way in this work,” the group wrote in a statement alongside the agenda. The collaborative is calling on the city’s next mayor to work with families and service providers to define and measure youth health and development by neighborhood. They want that information publicized to track and close opportunity gaps across the city.
