        18th Annual Legislative Open House 3/17/17 

BYLP’s LOH provides high school students, grades 9-12, with an opportunity to learn about the Legislative process through the hands-on experience of being legislators for a day. Our student participants spend the day at the Capitol and take part in mock-committee hearings and floor debates on important public policy issues that impact California.

In addition to the mock-legislative day, students enjoy a sit-down meal at BYLP’s Next Level Luncheon. The Legislative Open House will be held 3/17/17 from 8am to 5pm and is FREE to all accepted applicants.

BYLP Vision

BYLP Leads Charge as Unifying Voice in Sacramento

BYLP is committed to ensuring the youth have a voice at the table during all discussions had by officials whether elected or sworn to protect and serve. We believe the youth are the leaders they have been waiting for and are committed to empowering the youth as they assume position and lead this moment to a movement. We join in solidarity with The Dream Defenders (Florida), Black Youth Project (Chicago), Operation Help or Hush (St. Louis, MO) and countless other activists who are committed to keep the issues of injustices in the forefront until we force a change in the climate in this nation.
