ANNOUNCEMENT: YLI Youth of Color Forum on Thu August 22, 2013

The Youth Leadership Institute and YO! Mateo would like to invite youth of color to a unique community event:

 

  • FREE food, drinks and giveaways.
  • YO! Mateo Are We Sweet Enough? is holding a community forum for youth of color to discuss the new Sugar Sweetened Beverage (SSB) tax in San Mateo County. This issue is more than a health equity problem, but one of racial justice. The tax is meant to help prevent diabetes and obesity but in doing so will financially impact working class families and youth of color. Therefore, this community forum is a place for youth to voice their support, questions, and concerns.

WHY ATTEND?

  • This community forum is the first of its kind where youth of color have been asked to VOICE their opinion on a local tax.
  • Youth participants who are involved will be able to influence decisions local government makes and ultimately impact the communities they live in.
  • Represent an unheard voice in our community.

WHEN and WHERE?

  • Thursday, August 22, 2013 (5:00-6:30PM)
  • 387 Grand Ave. South San Francisco, CA 94080
  • Dinner is provided.

RSVP

  • Respond by Monday, August 19th, 2013
  • Contact Anthony T. Calegari-Heimuli (650) 347-4963 or aheimuli@yli.org

NCPP staff attended a press conference organized by Assemblyman Jerry Hill at the Boys & Girls Club of San Mateo to celebrate Governor Jerry Brown’s signing of Assembly Bill 1301: Retail Tobacco Sales: STAKE Act, authored by Hill. This law would require the State to suspend or revoke tobacco retail licenses for stores that are repeatedly caught selling tobacco to minors.  Assemblyman Hill celebrated by holding a press conference alongside Youth Leadership Institute, San Mateo County Tobacco Education Coalition, Breathe California, and Asian American Recovery Services, who have collaborated extensively in previous years to research and document the problem of underage youth access to tobacco products.  Among the educational displays was a collection of several packs of cigarettes purchased by underage members of the Stay Safe Youth Coalition (SSYC) of Asian American Recovery Services as part of a research project demonstrating the ease with which tobacco products can be accessed by minors.  SSYC youth conducted these purchases with adult supervision as part of years of work pushing for stronger Tobacco Retail License (TRL) laws locally.  Together with Youth Leadership Institute, the San Mateo Tobacco Education Coalition, Breathe California, and Assemblyman Jerry Hill, SSYC youth of the now retired Stay Safe Program  of Asian American Recovery Services can celebrate an important milestone in their legacy of tobacco policy advocacy.  With continued collaboration with our partners, we hope to continue making important strides in the fight against tobacco.  Congratulations!
