As part of their work in our year-long Impact Project curriculum, Pia '20 and Natalie '20 have been working on a cause that advocates for something many major cities have, though Los Angeles doesn't. Please see their call to action below.
My partner, Pia, and I have been working with the Los Angeles Invest in Youth Campaign. Our campaign and our goal is to aim for an equitable youth development department in Los Angeles. Many youth aren’t being provided with the necessary resources to succeed in their communities. We are currently asking young people and organizations all across Los Angeles to come up with ideas for programs that they wish to see in their communities. In March, our coalition will be sending youth, like us, to advocate for the needs in our communities. We want to expand our coalition to include a diversity of organizations across LA.
