"They say cut backs, we say fight back!"

Youth Center members, guardians and staff joined hundreds of other students, teachers, and community members in the National Day of Action to Defend Education and Public Services yesterday at Pantoja Park in Downtown. The day started with a rally, followed by a march, and ending with a festival back at Pantoja Park, where are very own member Bella presented a speech on how budget cuts are affecting her educational and after school programming. The event made local headlines, including a piece on CBS 8, which can be viewed here (you can see Youth Center members and staff at 0:46 and 2:06!). Pictures from the event are posted in our Photobucket album here in the 2010 Oct 7 Day of Action for Education album.
