📣 HELP SAVE CHUCO'S!!! 1. First video is of the holding cells youth would be put into while waiting to see a judge. Many of us have been through this process, and some of us in this very court, as multiple young people would be kept in a small cell for hours until the judge called them. We are keeping it as is to remember how youth have been (and still are) treated by LA County - the place where the most youth in the world are locked up. YJC fought to have this courthouse closed down and now we are taking it over! We will turn this section into a museum while highlighting all those local s/heroes who have resisted LA County's War on Youth.

2. Picture of a courtroom. At one point, this courtroom was used to sentence the most youth in the world to incarceration. Sitting at the helm above everybody else, a judge would determine the fate of a young person and their families. We are keeping the judges chambers as a historic relic.
3. A paper we found amidst all the dust and debris. It's a list of "inmate" uniforms. One day, all this will be a thing of the past.

WE NEED YOU to help us renovate this old juvenile courthouse into a true place of justice for LA's young people! 20+ community orgs use Chuco's; families use Chuco's for baby showers, quinceaneras, funeral receptions, and more; YJC'S high school FREE LA is here; free classes for krump dancing and capoeira take place at Chuco's; and Chuco's is now moving into a bigger space with the opportunity to add more but WE NEED YOU!

The Youth Justice Coalition (YJC) is working to build a youth, family and prisoner-led movement to challenge race, gender and class inequality in Los Angeles County’s and California’s juvenile injustice system. The YJC is working to transform a system that has ensured the massive lock-up of people of color; widespread police violence, corruption and distrust between police and communities; disregard of youth and communities' Constitutional and human rights; the construction of a school-to-jail track; and the build-up of the world's largest prison system.

Here are some of our recent organizational and coalition-based victories that you would be helping us to build off and expand:

1. Ending voluntary probation of 21,000 students in LAUSD (June, 2018). The policy that allowed them to do this was WIC 236. We are now working to strike this out through future legislation.
2. Getting 10,000 people off of L.A. city gang injunctions (Fall, 2018)

3. LA Sheriff Department Civilian Oversight Commission recommended and approved YJC's Family Bill of Rights to Board of Supervisors who are now conducting feasibility study before adopting a final version. Creates the Office Family Assistance and Communication that will be staffed by members of county agencies (DMHS, Coroner's office) that helps families impacted by police violence get access to services and critical information about the investigation.
4. Divestment of more than $12 million from probation and other law enforcement through demands to shift local JJCP juvenile justice coordinating council from probation-only to community and county control. We got $12 mill from probation back to community based organizations.
5. Youth diversion and development county office: creation of la county first youth diversion and development office. #justice #now #youth #power #us #community #love #realtalk #black #brown #people #free #losangeles #ca #california #instadaily #igdaily #instamood #give
