"Attach yourself to God... at the confluence of the three rivers of knowledge, right action, and devotion."

Dear Reader,

As students settle into their school year, we're sobered by the long-term, multi-generational nature of building a more just and sacred society. In Santa Ana, a powerful coalition is breaking cycles to empower students. Los Angeles area refugee youth are receiving new backpacks through CLUE UCARE's second annual drive. And here in CLUE's Los Angeles office, six amazing young adults are bringing fresh energy and insight for the Fall semester-- right when we need it most!

 

Starting the School Year 
With Restorative Justice

A new school funding system requiring district accountability is paving the way for healthier student-authority relationships in Santa Ana schools. The diverse coalition that CLUE takes part in has already pushed for better campus oversight, education against bullying, and the elimination of the threat of deportation for undocumented students! 

Join us in practicing restorative justice through community circles beginning Monday, October 10th at 6pm!

We hope that all of the youth and young adults who are involved in or affected by the political process will energize you through a long political season! Stay tuned to read our full list of ballot recommendations and join the dialogue!
