An L.A. That Loves Its Youth Community Event

Wednesday, August 24, 2016
The California Endowment, Redwood Room
1000 North Alameda Street
Los Angeles, CA 90012


On behalf of the L.A. For Youth Campaign, we wanted to cordially invite you to “An L.A. That Loves Its Youth” Community Event on Wednesday, August 24 at The California Endowment Redwood Room from 2:00pm-4:00pm. The L.A. For Youth Campaign is working to create a Youth Development Department within the city of Los Angeles, to be enacted by L.A. City Council as soon as possible.

As a means of creating positive alternatives for the youth of L.A. and mitigating the bloated investment in youth incarceration and criminalization in our city, this department will focus on youth job development, opening new youth centers across the city, and creating employment opportunities for community intervention workers, also known as “peacebuilders.”

“An L.A. That Loves Its Youth” will be an engaging experience for both new-comers and supporters of the campaign to learn about our history, hear from youth speakers and live performers, and have group discussions about how we can collectively improve public safety across Los Angeles.

What does “An L.A. That Loves Its Youth” look like to you? How can we build upon this value together to make this a reality for our young people?

Light refreshments will be available. We hope to see you there!
