Share your treasured moments with us in pictures

Contact us with any questions or feedback at or on Twitter @nhrvoices.

Surely, special times are upon us.

A Youth Movement:

"I choose to march at this event because I feel that to get a job in New Haven is complicated and unfair for all youth. I march for equality for all of us. Being an inner-city high school honor student, it's definitely hard.. We all deserve at least a chance."  -- Mahogany Mathis, Higher Heights Youth Empowerment Program

Starting at noon on Saturday, a coalition of youth groups will march in New Haven from the Dixwell Community House building at 197 Dixwell Ave. to the steps at City Hall.
Their message? "YES to jobs. NO to violence."

Once the marchers arrive at City Hall, 165 Church St. they will reveal the findings of a door-to-door survey on the issues of jobs, education, public safety and neighborhood concerns.

Then, it's on to Criscuolo Park, at the corner of Chapel and James streets, for a Peace Party, featuring youth performers.

These events are the first in a series of actions young people will be taking out of concern for the future for them and society as a whole.

If you go, please Tweet your pictures to an online photo gallery using the hashtag #NHVYouth or email them to us via

Father's Day:

For this gallery, the Twitter hashtag changes #ctdads2012 but the email remains

We wish everyone a Happy Father's Day and hope you will share photos of the memories your family creates on Sunday.

We also welcome pictures of dads who are deceased but forever remembered.

Tis the season.

From kindergarten through 12th grade, our children are advancing to new stages of living and learning.
If your family is celebrating a graduation that has already occurred or is coming up, please share your pictures.

The Twitter hashtag for graduations is #ctgrads2012, and again, the email for sending them to us is
