Junta Youth Advisory Committee

HSC students Kayla, Angel, Jen, Mariely, Victor, and Emily have joined Junta‘s Youth Advisory Committee. Junta’s goal is to let students ages 15–25 work on issues they care about and find ways to let their voices be heard, as well as create spaces for undocumented families and allies to continue sharing their stories.

Junta is a local nonprofit that empowers the Latino and low-income community to take control of their economic and social well being. They also promote a culture of community involvement and advocacy through their programs and initiatives. Junta presented at our Social Justice Teach-In in January, and we’re happy to continue our connection with this great organization!
