DHF in Action: Teens 4 Equality youth leaders join Free Our Dreams Day of Action, Mon. 5/8/17

DHF’s Teens 4 Equality joined over 200 Free Our Dreams youth leaders from across the state gathered in Sacramento for a Day of Action to ask legislators and decision makers to take bold action that make our neighborhoods and schools safe and inclusive environments where youth are free to grow and thrive. They are asking our legislators and decision makers to step up and support legislation that:

– Creates sanctuary for all and fully inclusive schools and communities

– Reinvests resources from punishment and incarceration to prevention

– Transformative justice practices; and expansion of economic, health and educational opportunity for all youth

Support these youth leaders by asking that our representatives stand for all of us by supporting and building a “CaliforALL.”

Top Policy Priorities:

  • SB 607 (Skinner): Ending suspensions for willful defiance
  • SB 395 (Lara, Mitchell): Miranda rights for law enforcement interrogations for youth
  • AB 90 (Weber): Moratorium on the use of CalGang Database
  • SB 562 (Lara): Californians for a Healthy California Act
  • SB 68 (Lara): Extending in-state tuition for undocumented students at CSU and community colleges
  • CA Department of Education advisory for “Safe Schools For All”
