Our brilliant new youth magazine, Young And Free or Young AF, is a collection of writing by system-impacted young women and trans youth of all genders across California.
Inspired by the bravery and brilliance of the youth voices in our Through their Eyes report, the magazine highlights and celebrates the expertise, power, and leadership of young people who have grown up in poverty, experienced the juvenile legal and foster care systems, have had to survive living and working on the streets, and who have experienced significant violence in their lives.
Young AF is a stunning example of our vision. It shows what is possible when young people have the resources and support they need to recognize all forms of oppression – to name them, organize, and advocate to end them, and the space to heal and live self-determined lives.
