by Nicole Eng
On Wednesday, March 25th,
The Los Angeles Coalition against State Violence announced their demands…to

prevention efforts, public transportation, affordable housing and other human
rights policies in the City of Los Angeles.
Community Organizations from across Los Angeles Call on Mayor Villaraigosa and other City Leaders to Support Healthy Communities in this Year's Budget!
Did you ever come late to school? Of course, we all did. You'd get a look from the teacher, a warning about your grades, or even detention. Well, times have changed. Being 15 minutes late can now get you handcuffed by school police and issued a ticket for $250 with a mandatory day in court. Black and Latino students have been telling us about their experiences with these "zero tolerance" policies.
