Join youth leaders from Building Healthy Communities South Kern and South Kern Sol this summer as they use their voice to engage youth across Kern County and lead us to a better and more just future.
South Kern youth leaders and advocates are launching a three-part series focused on #schoolsnotprisons, #unity, #investinyouth and #vota. The series will bring multi-media platforms that lift up culture and arts tied to social justice.
Youth will demand that local leaders refocus attention and resources away from mass incarceration and toward approaches likely to improve safety, such as #Health4Kern, trauma-informed education practices that limit suspensions and break the school-to-prison pipeline, a vibrant arts and culture scene, and comprehensive immigration reform.
South Kern Sol youth recognize that young people are an asset to this community and through a series of events they hope to create unity and encourage other young people across the county to #GetLoud for issues that impact their communities.
