The clock is ticking. On August 1, rent was due. Now we are 8 days away from the start of mass evictions across California. This could mean millions being pushed into homelessness and being needlessly exposed to COVID-19. Governor @GavinNewsom and the state Senate must ACT NOW to avert this disaster by passing #AB1436 and keep Californians in their homes! #StopCOVIDEvictions

#Power2Youth Update! Week 2 has been amazing! We had young people engaging in important discussions around public safety, police divestment, and loving our communities. Check out the drawing that Annie, a youth participant, drew. Our youth have beautiful visions for our future!💛
Youth like Kionna had to make really difficult decisions, like turning down essential job opportunities to keep their family safe, and to protect their pregnancy. COVID-19 has made it difficult for young parents to get the proper medical services they need.

Watch our Live now!
Our communities can only do so much to hold it down, but now is the time for Fresno County Board of Supervisors to step up and show us real leadership. Now more than ever we need our county leadership to support us!
Stream the event now on FB LIVE!
#FundFresno #FundOurFamilies #FresnoNeeds
COVID-19 impacts our young parents like Olivia, who are having difficulty coming by employment opportunities and receiving the financial support necessary to raise and sustain her family. Fresno County Board of Supervisors need to take action and help our families who need it the most.

Why are essentials workers not being treated as such? Youth like Esme are at-risk during work and face many health concerns and see nothing done to keep them protected or safe during this pandemic. 

"Stop ignoring my communities lives, we matter, we are important."

Tune into the event now as we demand Fresno County BoS to take urgent action:

Posted @withregram • @usparkvalley "In response to local and national demands for changes in policing to address decades of inequalities, City leaders have been working to identify actions that will prevent tragic events like the death of George Floyd.  In that spirit, the 37-member commission will include residents, community advocates, and experts on public safety and community policing."-City of Fresno⁠
⁠
The Police Reform Commission is made up of several community advocates and it also includes members of the police department. Whether the commission can bring real change is yet to be seen. The commission will be meeting today July 27 at 5pm. You can witness the meeting by tuning in via CMAC or the city's YouTube page (link in bio). You can also register in order to give a public comment (link in bio). ⁠
⁠
What changes would you like to see to our police department? Leave us a comment. ⁠
