Youth have consistently shown that they will not remain idle on the social issues that impact their lives. Youth are visionaries and they are passionate for social good. For this reason, it is essential that we recognize the powerful role they have in social movements, and learn how to empower youth to become the leaders of our changing world #apydcon #youthactivism #wednesdaywisdom

#TuesdayTip: Youth are very aware of what is happening in their communities, and they have their own opinions on the changes that need to be made. Their voice should always be heard and considered because youth are an asset to their communities. The more that youth participate in civic engagement, the more they get to develop leadership skills and make healthier life choices that can collectively love us into a more socially just world 💪🌎🙌.

California is leading the way in Child Trafficking policy. Instead of treating children as criminals, California now recognizes them as the victims they truly are. #APYDCON http://ow.ly/Y83Q30dJelA

It is not possible to be a child prostitute. This child is being exploited. It is time the law reflects this language. Children should not be charged with a crime they are being forced into. #APYDCON #stopchildtrafficking http://ow.ly/6nio30dJdlA
