LA County Incarceration Rates by Ethnicity - Whites - 1.8 per 1k, Latinos - 4.3 per 1k and Blacks 20.8 per 1k. Please keep this in mind when making recommendations.
Anthony Robles, Youth Justice Coalition, He Him
56:09
We (Youth Justice Coalition) is happy to share a short presentation on the history of youth incarceration and youth development in LA County, if the group would like.
Joe Hernandez
56:50
Is this committees focus only on K-12 or also on Higher education like community colleges?
Lilia Onate (she/her)
57:33
It is my hope that any decisions or recommendations that are made within this subcommittee are data driven.
DONTAY HAYES
58:35
What I recommend will be experience driven.
DONTAY HAYES

I hope that will be ok
Andy Wexler - Pali Mountain he/him
59:12
I would like to present a program that can house, educate and vocationally train up to 450 people at a time at a spectacular 700 acre location in Lake Hughes. Here is a video of the location - https://paliportal.wistia.com/medias/30fbcr6kda?wtime=0s
Aparna Shah l she/they l Co-Facilitator
59:19
We welcome all recommendations
Joel Garcia, Meztli Projects (he/him)
59:35
We need to expand the youth definition beyond the age of 24
Irene Lim
01:00:30
are we going to need to think about how it will all play out during and post pandemic. so many youth missing out, including young adults just trying to make it.
Anthony Conley
01:00:30
Great point, Joel.
Paul Freese
01:00:51
I've advocated on behalf of foster, homeless, probation and LBGTQ+ youth for nearly 3 decades and have examined Mr. Wexler's program model and believe it has extraordinary potential - especially if refined by experts on this remarkable working committee
Shirley Torres (she/her) Homeboy Industries
01:01:07
Agree with earlier comments not to conflate education (K-12) with youth and youth development to define who we are serving otherwise we recreate the same system.
Ronaldo Villeda
01:01:31
We need a youth advisory body for this subcommittee that consists of system impacted and formerly incarcerated youth
Araceli Simeon (she/her) Parent Organization Network
01:01:39
Given the pandemic and the learning loss, youth will need support attaining foundational learning skills: reading and math.
Ronaldo Villeda
01:01:41
To answer those questions for us
Ronaldo Villeda
01:02:15
As a young formerly incarcerated man this is something I would like to see
Shirley Torres (she/her) Homeboy Industries
01:02:22
We need to think about those without support systems—pushed out of school (i.e. gang members) and think about human development across the life span—what do youth and young adults need to heal from trauma.
Gloria Gonzalez, YJC, LAYUP
01:02:53
Echoing what Ronnie is bringing up there needs to be space for youth that are systems impacted to share their vision.
Carmen Taylor Jones
01:02:55
Will they be any locale requirements? What we don't want is organizations and agencies from out of the area - state, city and community. We know that MONEY brings everyone to the table
Taylor Schooley, YDD (she/her)
01:03:07

working with youth and being a public speaker in the schools we need someone that is going to be a voice but also give youth a platform to share their own concerns. Our degrees are great but we need to give them opportunities to be heard finally.

So impressed with all the candidates and so glad they will be serving on this committee. Anthony is the only youth with incarceration history and electing him Co-Chair seems the best way to give voice to the youth.

youth have to be at the table. in the youth opioid coalition there are over 22 organizations present and youth hold the chair positions.
Elida Ledesma (she/her) Arts for Healing & Justice Network

We have worked with YJC as partners and have met Anthony through our work and in multiple spaces. He is a strong facilitator and always center youth voices and the experience of this who have experienced incarceration. I echo my support for Anthony.

Gabriela Vazquez

Growing up in LA, I never could have imagined a community first, jails last direction for this city. Seeing leaders like Anthony in spaces like this one is essential to truly building out alternatives to incarceration here and to build the blueprint for other counties to follow. My full support for Anthony Robles
Sarah Fiskin
01:31:37
I’d like to second my support for Luis Vasquez! Beyond his lived and professional experience, his focus on LGBTQ+ youth would be very valuable in furthering this committee’s focus on intersectional oppression!

Although I fully support someone closest to the age group this committee needs to center to be selected as co-chair, I am really frustrated that with this ATI effort we are replicating very inequitable processes to put impacted folks in positions to lead, there’s very short notice to get the word out on these meetings, etc.

01:38:27
I have seen first hand Anthony's facilitation, agenda setting, and policy analysis chops on a multi-year, multi-issue countywide initiative. His leadership is grounded in lived-experiences and I know he will bring so much to the co-chair position. Thank though for everyone sharing their stories, and I hope whoever ends up with this position continues to center youth voices and those who have been systems-impacted.
Gabriela Vazquez

I was not able to give public comment but I will share this again: Questions for Dossier: Are they part of any clubs or associations? Where are they based? Where are they from? Are they a judge / legislator / something else?

Am I the only one who is having trouble keeping up with the lingo and acronyms like CBO, Spa (?), 3rd party, and the definition of “program” for the purposes of making recommendations (b/c it sounds like we cannot recommend giving funding to a pre-existing “program” such as one of Homeboy Industry’s current programs.
Daniela Hernandez, she/her, InnerCity Struggle
02:06:11
CBO= community based organization

Is there a possibility that we get a more detailed agenda for the next meeting? I think it would be helpful to organize our ideas and contribute more meaningfully to the conversation.

@LiliaOnate yes please least clarify jargon and acronym. And my invitation is that if anyone hears jargon to please pause us and ask for clarification. This work is notorious jargon heavy.

The youth who most need the creative vision of this work group to achieve humanizing system change are those aging out of our foster care system - consider the data - 40% of our chronic homeless population; 70% of the state prison population; 80% of survivors of human trafficking report histories of foster care. School based programs providing individualized support connected with opportunities to enable these youth to explore nature and escape oppressive group living situations are critical to change these outcomes
Ben Donenberg (he/him) Will Power to Youth/Write On!

@Araceli In the brainstorm happening at the end of the meeting, we invite everyone to share what they know about this Subcommittee Focus Area (e.g. the landscape analysis). In Subcommittee Meeting #2, we hope to begin to bring in a “Landscape analysis”, specifically what’s going on related to youth development and education access as connected to what emerged from the brainstorm that comes from the last activity in tonight’s meeting.

I don't know if mine was deleted but was as follows: "I see a lack of educational programs and resources, specially geared towards continuation education. We shouldn't simply give up on youth after an error (or a few) - they should receive the same resources as mainstream schooling (tutoring, mentoring, sports, etc.)
Anthony Robles, Youth Justice Coalition, He Him
02:30:46
Employment and Career prep programs for youth
Delia Munoz (she/her)
02:33:13
I'd like to see funding diverted for the younger youth, elementary age group, to set a stronger educational foundation. This group does not have the concerns of the older youth having to provide for the home. A strong foundation will lead to confidence and encourages success. Perhaps tutoring for young kids, Kumon or similar tutoring vouchers. The children is were I believe we need to start, the younger the better.

ifoster's AmeriCorps TAY program that hires former foster/probation youth and trains them to excel as peer advocates and Credible Messengers (thank you for highlighting this need, Nicole!) to help empower the next generation of system-traumatized youth. They are working with a collaborative to develop a Independent Living Program training Academy in a beautiful natural setting - we should invite them to make a presentation as I believe they can revolutionize ways our system prepares youth aging out to be able not only to cope but thrive with the support of a peer and alumni network.
