CSUDH Incarceration Nation

On April 9, 2015 the YAL Chapter at Cal State Dominguez Hills went on the LSU East Walkway and hosted a tabling session raising awareness about the incarceration rates in the United States.

We stood out from 10am-2pm passing out informational flyers to students walking by and answering any questions that they had. Since the school is a majority-minority campus with a heavy African-American and Latino population in the Los Angeles area, the issues of police militarization and over criminalization are deeply important to these disproportionately affected communities.

The response was amazing as students thanked us for raising awareness of these issues and helping to educate the students about criminal justice based problems.
