Central High Students Win $30M Gang Injunction Suit Against the City of Los Angeles

 

 

This is an unbelievable victory for young people of color in low-income communities who are subject to profiling and state-sanctioned violence on a daily basis. 

 

Christian Rodriguez and Alberto Cazarez had the courage and fortitude to stand up for what is right and persevered, having organized not only their own community but also 25 other neighborhoods throughout Los Angeles, subjected to similar repression at the hands of those whose job is purportedly to serve and protect. 

 

This settlement allocates funds exactly where they need to go – to training and supporting the most marginalized among us in becoming contributing members of society instead of criminalizing them and destabilizing our communities further.  Our youth have taught us a great lesson in social justice; law enforcement, take heed!
