Building Healthy Community’s Youth Action Council (YAC) received training on policy 101, policy advocacy and legislative visits. On March 26, three YAC members put their training to the test when they made legislative visits during the California Partnership to End Domestic Violence’s Legislative Action Week. YAC members visited the staff of Assemblyman Isadore Hall of the 64th District, which covers parts of South LA, Watts and Compton. The YAC had the opportunity to advocate the need for additional violence prevention programs, prompting the assemblyman’s senior staff to request more information on BHC South LA.
