Brenda Verano, Youth in Action Los Angeles
The Youth in Action project will take place in Los Angeles and will serve youth from all over L.A (South central, Boyle Heights,& Lincoln Heights). This project started as an idea for the incorporation of solidarity between youth in these hard times, where youth are transforming into warriors and bold individuals.
After getting training from the School of Unity and Liberation in Spring 2017, Brenda Verano will facilitate workshops and support other youth organizers like herself to develop an even greater action regarding community challenges such as; gentrification, immigration and/ or food justice. This project is desperately needed at this time of change and revolution, and will provide a place of individual growth and help youth find their voice.
