Unsung Heroes a huge success!

Thank you to everyone who joined us at our Unsung Heroes celebration last week on the beautiful Ohana Floor at Salesforce! Friends, supporters, YLC staff and members of our Board of Directors gathered to celebrate the phenomenal work of our 2020 honorees. This year, our five honorees have worked to increase higher education opportunities for youth with juvenile justice involvement, protected the basic human rights of children in the juvenile justice system and held public agencies accountable, and broken the cycles of oppression that criminalize girls, women and TGNC people of color in California. We are so grateful to our honorees for their continued partnership and fearless advocacy! Click below to see some photos from the awards celebration. We hope you will join us at the next Unsung Heroes!

This year, our honorees were:
Kanu Song and Michael Plimack of Covington & Burling LLP
Dr. Monte Perez of Los Angeles Mission College
Dr. Jesus Corral of County of Los Angeles Probation Department
Young Women’s Freedom Center
