OYC Young Leaders at Supervisors Solis and Hahn Council Meeting

“When you’re homeless, your whole world stops.” - Taneil Franklin (19), one of our OYC Young Leaders during last week’s meeting with Supervisors Solis and Hahn — which saw the passing of a motion to increase dedicated state homelessness funding to support transition-age youth. We’re so proud of our two youth council leaders, Taneil Franklin and Dimitri Dunn, as well as OYC fellow and former foster youth Brisia Gutierrez, for raising their voices, advocating for their peers, and sharing their experiences to bring urgency to this complex and multi-dimensional issue.
