WLP @ the L.A. City Council Meeting on #Standing4BlackGirls

On August 9th, Sikivu, Jessica and Tomorrie spoke on the #Standing4BlackGirls coalition and WLP during public comment at the L.A. City Council meeting. Earlier this month, WLP and #S4BG launched a youth-focused letter writing campaign to Mayor Karen Bass. The letter outlines eight demands to create dedicated funding for targeted prevention education programming, mental health supports, and safe spaces for Black girls and Black gender expansive youth. Community members who are interested in supporting the campaign by sending in a letter, please check out our template and instruction guide to submit and support.
