#WeSupportYoungParents

MOST RECENT

Thanks to you, our comunidad, we were able to crowdfund $2,000 to take 15 Latina/x leaders to advocate for the rights of young parents at the State Capitol.

TODAY WE NEED YOUR HELP TO RAISE $4,000! At exactly 12pm PCT, The California Endowment WILL MATCH DONATIONS UP TO $5,000.

We invite you to sow the seeds of change with us by making a donation, no matter what the amount, as we continue to fight for ALL of our comunidades!

Just went to a workshop where young parents talked about reframing how young parents are seen in media and society #wesupportyoungparents #ltas2017 #ltas17

Last Friday, August 25th we celebrated the first annual California Young Parents Day! Thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating the incredibly powerful and resilient young parents in our communities through our social media campaign.
We want to extend a very special thank you to these amazing young parent advocates, some of whom were young parents themselves, for sharing powerful words of encouragement and support! Together we are shifting the way young parents are treated, perceived and represented. Please check out the link in our bio to watch the video!

The day hasn't ended yet so here goes...
This is a parent appreciation post going out to my Mom and Dad as a way of celebrating the first annual #CAYoungParentsDay thanks to @latinas4rj !💜Both are young parents who had to go through some rough times together to get to where they are today and let me tell you THEY ARE THRIVING💜They are the absolute best parents a girl could ask for and their stories are some of the most inspiring.Together they had to overcome all the obstacles and negative stigma tied to being young parents but they managed thanks to the support of their families and friends, which just goes to prove that age DOES NOT define a good parent.If you have young parents I encourage you to do something nice for them to show your appreciation and please don't wait until the next Young Parents Day to do so😊

We are proud to announce the release of our third Justice for Young Families (J4YF) Issue Brief, "Young Fathers Speak Out!" 💙💚💛💜
At a time when the voices of young men of color in our communities are often eclipsed by stereotypes and negative narratives, "Young Fathers Speak Out!" highlights the voices and experiences of young Latino fathers. This brief provides much needed insight into what it means to be a young father, making recommendations and pushing back against harmful stigma and shame associated with young parenthood.
💜💛💚💙

Our hearts were melting as we watched and listened to Justice for Young Parents (J4YF) Young Parent Leaders Council member, Amelia, speak about her experience leaving her daughter at the hospital after giving birth. Amelia spoke in support of family leave for young parents, SB 1014.

We are thrilled SB 1014 (Liu), which would give young parents family leave, passed the Senate Education Committee, and that our sponsored bill AB 1954 (Burke), which will increase access to #ReproHealth services, passed the Senate Health Committee!
