Boyle Heights Issues Forum

CALO YouthBuild’s 2015 Issues Forum is an opportunity for youth to share their knowledge and insight with policy makers and the community at large. Young researchers and organizers will be presenting on issues related to gentrification, police brutality and environmental justice.
