Youth United for Community Action

Youth United for Community Action

"Locked out of the legal means of material survival, looked down upon by predatory politicians and police, left with the least relevant educational opportunities, talked at with contempt and not talked to with love-- is there any question why such youth are alienated?... 

They look at the lives they live and see not "civil rights progress", but a drumbeat of civil repression by a state at war with their dreams.

Why the surprise?

This is not the lost generation....

They are the children of the L.A. rebellion, the children of the MOVE bombing, the children of the Black Panthers, and the grandchildren of Malcolm; far from lost, they are probably the most aware generation since Nat Turner's; they are not so much lost as they are mislaid, discarded by this increasingly racist system that undermines their inherent worth. They are all potential revolutionaries, with the historical power to transform our dull realities.

If they are lost, find them."

San Mateo County Redistricting Committee Meeting

  • Millbrae Community Center 477 Lincoln Circle Millbrae, CA (map)

 After a lawsuit brought on by the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and the Asian Law Caucus, San Mateo County began to address the lack of people of color leadership in elected positions.  The Board of Supervisors formed the Redistricting Committee to hear public comment, study current and potential boundaries and recommending possible adjustments to the current SMC district lines.  Our own ED, Annie Loya, is a member of this committee and has been faithfully attending these meetings.  Come make your voice heard!
