YJC Spotlight: Abraham Colunga

Abraham Colunga MEME YJC #TeamLOBOS

The YJC is not your typical non-profit org. We work hard and take action and try and model the change we wish to see in the world and implement the justice models our youth of color in LA deserve.

YJC Peacebuilder and Organizer Abraham is a role model for our youth in our schools, in lock-ups, and on the block. We don’t need more police to create public safety, we need young people of color like Abraham to get hired as intervention workers in the same communities they grew up in. We want ‪#‎CollegePrep‬ not ‪#‎Prison‬ Prep, ‪#‎Education‬ Not‪#‎Incarceration‬. Support the L.A. 4 Youth Campaign to help us make this happen. 

Abraham Colunga: Peacebuilder. Warrior. LOBO.

Pack The Court For Echo Park Defendants Fighting Racist Gang Injunctions

Saturday, March 7th, 2015

EchoParkDefendantsTrial

There hasn’t been a homicide in Echo park in over 4 years. Crime rates are the lowest they’ve been since the 1950’s. But the LAPD and City Attorney are still moving forward with Gang Injunctions, including the one in Echo Park. Injunctions are a tool used by the city to gentrify neighborhoods. Since they have not been able to make an arrest for a violent crime, the City Attorney’s Office is indicting 9 people for a murder that was caused by a different neighborhood years ago. Two defendants have already been released due to lack of evidence. Pack the Courts! Injunctions Are Injustice!
