Our Help Increase the Peace class was invited to attend a free screening of Romeo and Juliet set in Los Angeles following the 1992 LA riots. After sharing some pizza in the lobby area, and meeting artists who engaged in work relevant to the Westlake Area, we sat together to watch how violence and peace unraveled in this Shakespearean drama. We left with a sense that peace is possible-even in LA.

In collaboration with Story Corps we invited migrant youth we work with to share their stories. Every participant invited someone they care about to interview them. This is part of an exciting YPB&J national task force effort to highlight the diversity of migrant youth experiences in the U.S. We will soon be using audio clips of these recordings to share with you in a digital story telling format. Stay tuned!
