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."

Let's Talk About: Climate Change & Gentrification

When it comes to conversations about Climate Change, we know that not many will be clamoring at the doors. But what you don't know, is that when it comes to issues of climate change, cities such as East Palo Alto are the least offenders, yet, we ail be the most impacted.  

Young People of East Palo Alto urge the community to come out and join us as we enjoy beautiful artwork by local artist and engage with us in a discussion centered around two issues of importance in East Palo Alto: Climate Change & Gentrification. Questions will be received from the audience to ensure the community's voice is heard!  

City Council Candidates that will all be in attendance are as follows: 

Ruben Abrica

Donna Rutherford

Kimberly Carlton
