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.
