“Unbreakable Roots: Cultivating Love & Resilience”

For the past 17 years, AYPAL has been committed to building a more socially just world by developing transformative youth power through the arts. 

On Thursday, May 21, we invite you to join the AYPAL family as we celebrate 17 years of arts-activism that have rooted our communities in resilience when faced with cycles of poverty, violence, and oppression. We will also be announcing our new, exciting, youth-driven campaign so you will not want to miss out!
