Join us March 7th as we march for Youth in the City of Los Angeles.
We will be marching for the #LAForYouth Campaign, which seeks to create a Youth Development Department in the city of L.A. to create TRUE public safety for youth, NOT more police and prisons.
This includes Re-Directing 5% of LAPD City Budget to create:
30 comprehensive youth centers
350 intervention/peace builders.
