Today and everyday, we celebrate all the madres in our communities!

This Mother’s Day, help us fight alongside young parents for their right to parental and sick leave in schools by supporting the Young Parent’s Right to Education Act (AB2289). AB2289 would provide parenting students (birthing and non-birthing parents) with 8 weeks of parental/sick leave. Having a consistent policy for schools to uphold the rights of young parents is a vital step to ensuring ALL students have the support they need to reach their educational goals. Please help us ask Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez_Fletcher, Chair of the Appropriations Committee, for her continued support for pregnant and parenting youth by voting “Ave” on AB2289!

Feliz día de las madres!🌹
🌹A las madres migrantes de la caravana de migrantes que han dejado sus países para darle una vida mejor a sus hijos.
🌹A las madres que no pueden estar con sus hijos en este día.
🌹A las madres jóvenes que luchan contra el estigma y sacan a sus hijos adelante día a día.
🌹A las madres encarceladas o en detención migratoria.
🌹A las madres que aúnque no nos parieron nos han alimentado el alma.
🌹 A nuestras madres que nos han enseñado el luchar por el bien de nuestras familias y nuestra sociedad!

Young Parents have the right- as do all youth- to receive support to achieve their educational and career goals. Research shows that children who bond with their parents have healthier outcomes. It’s time to uphold young parents’ right to education and their right to parent their children. Because when young parents thrive, so do their families and our communities.

Suport #AB2289 #YPREA! Show some love for pregnant and parenting youth!

Happy birthday, Elijah

On our second day at the @sistersong_woc "Let's Talk About Sex Conference", we are feeling inspired after the workshop facilitated by our fierce Young Parent Leaders from LA and the Central Valley! Hearing their stories and experiences reaffirm that WE are the experts of our own stories and that WE will drive the culture shift work we want to see in our communities!

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!

Our amazing #J4YF Young Parent Leaders, Amelia and Manuel, participated in an important campaign with our friend Ana from Univision Digital, which highlights what is at stake for our Latinx communities if the American Health Care Act (AHCA) becomes law.

Young Parents Advocates are fierce, unstoppable and create culture change!

Repost from @latinas4rj: From our #J4YF blog series:
A Young Parent’s Experience With Postpartum In The Face Of TrumpCare. By Maria Pacheco. ❤💜💙💚💛
"As a young parent advocate, I am committed to continuing to share my story and uplifting my experiences, not just for my son and I, but because the success of young parents is important for the success of our communities. It worries me that in today’s political climate, the lives of young parents are further threatened. Cutting life-saving services like postpartum depression serves only to further marginalize young parents who are already facing unfair and unproductive shame and stigma. It’s time our representatives see that our lives are not just numbers on their lists of constituents; that our families deserve to live with dignity and respect." 💛💚💙💜❤

As part of young parent's pushing back and creating cultural shift in our communities we are pleased to publish the first in a 3 part series of Justice for Young Families (J4YF) Young Patent Leaders Council (YPLC) blogs from California's Central Valley.

As a young mother, and daughter of immigrants, I consider myself to be a strong woman who fights to accomplish her goals, but the reality is that our families are being threatened by policies that are filled with hateful rhetoric. Images of families being torn apart create fear and panic in our communities. This will not stop us from continuing to fiercely protect one another and raise our voices to uplift our stories. As Latinx young parents we are more than a statistic! - Luisa Ruiz.
