*
The past two weeks have shown how important it is to stand with families that have been abandoned by our government. Young people and people of color who are trapped in jail cells or left behind in flood waters deserve our undivided support. On the heels of our September 10th event in support of families from New Orleans, and as our campaign to close
the CYA verges on major victory, we take this opportunity to link efforts.
*
Ermica Wilson, a gospel singer evacuated from New Orleans will bless us with her beautiful voice*. Family members from Louisiana now in the Bay Area will be present. * *

We will honor the struggle and success of the families of young people locked up in California's abusive and costly youth prisons. *This is a rare opportunity to hear from families and honor their strength to fight for a new juvenile justice system.* Bring your family and friends. We hope to see you there!

*For more information or to RSVP, call Monet at 510-428-3939 x 228 or
email her at monet@ellabakercenter.org monet@ellabakercenter.org>.
