On this edition of Your Call, we’re speaking with local youth about the changes they want to see.
At Saturday’s March for Our Lives rally in Washington DC, youth from South Los Angeles to Chicago demanded gun control and resources: fully funded schools, after school programs, paid internships, and good jobs. We’ll speak with Bay Area youth who live in neighborhoods that have been neglected by politicians. In an area with so much wealth, far too many youth are being left behind. What challenges do they face? What changes would they like to see?
