The Watsonville Brown Berets have organized Youth and Power for eight years in order to empower youth and to share tools to make effective and creative changes in their community. This event is a drug-free event, and requires that youth unite solely through their shared vision of a just and healthy future, FREE OF HATRED, MIGRA RAIDS AND PRISONS, in which the histories and cultures of people who have been traditionally oppressed are valued and lived with dignity.
