Close The School Of The Americas!!!

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Homies Unidos has advocated for just policies to deal with the issue of violence that plagues not just the streets of Los Angeles but also the streets of Central America. We will be joining School of The Americas Watch in their mission to close down this school that has trained many dictators an assassins throughout Latin America. As part of our Youth Leadership training on civic engagement, we will be taking five youth who have graduated from our program to Columbus, GA and will be presenting on how, what happens in Latin America, affects our youth in the streets of Los Angeles. We will be screening the Fruits of War documentary and educating people from all parts of the U.S. about the work that Homies Unidos does and at the same time creating leaders of our youth who at one point where disfranchised and now are developing into advocates for social justice.

Help us raise the funds to take our youth to have this once in a lifetime amazing experience. DONATE NOW

SB982 as written is bad for our incarcerated people!!!

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

Please send your representative in the California senate a message that solitary confinement is an inhumane act that needs to stop. That Hancock’s SB982 will make it a law for anyone suspected to be part of any prison group or what they call Security Threat Groups to be segregated in a secure housing unit without having committed any violation of any serious crime.

Although this bill also has important amendments to what is now in place, listed below, we suggest people not supported under its current form.

SB982 has Important issues but it is undermined by the codification of security threat groups:

Increased oversight and accountability.

Integrity and fair treatment in detention decisions.

Humane conditions in the SHUs (Security Housing Units, or solitary confinement).

Positive incentives for inmates to change their lives.
