Fund Empowerment not Violence
Music by Power Struggle
AYPAL is working in coalition with Kids First 2 to re-authorize and increase the Oakland Fund for Children and Youth.
The challenges kids in Oakland face everyday are growing, but the resources to help them are not. The number of children in poverty is on the rise; the dropout rate is one of the highest in the state; and more and more children have no adult supervision after-school. Our children need and deserve to be a top priority and passing this measure will prevent the city from ignoring the needs of Oakland youth.
