PHAdvocates Motivating Youth to Speak Up for Los Angeles Youth Funding
September 1, 2016 Public Health Advocates

The Los Angeles City Council approved a motion requesting a report and assessment of the City of LA’s funding and provision of youth programs! We are hoping that this is the first step toward the creation of a Youth Development Department! PHAdvocates and our partnering Building Healthy Communities (BHC) organizations brought youth leaders to a “Invest in Youth Rally” event to advocate for city funding of youth programs.

Special thanks to Council member Jose Huizar for introducing the motion and working with our youth leaders, and all of the Building Healthy Communities organizations.
