Summary of the Case

Youth Poverty Skolaz Response to Billionaires Disaster Krapitalism

Bonanza is Cansa, by Kimo Umu
 
Since early January of this year, the covid-19 virus has continued to surge through the country. Many who are impacted first are the people without homes struggling to make it to the next day.
 
In the United States today 78 percent of households are living paycheck to paycheck. 20 percent of these individuals have a net worth of zero and below. I suspect this includes the homeless, impoverished and immigrants. 
 

Immune Tips for COVID-19 (and for cold and flu season in general)

I think it's safe to say that we've all been thinking more about public health and stopping the
spread of viruses over the last few weeks. The need for social distancing right now is high. This
help us to to protect each other (especially those who are elder, immune compromised, or have
other health conditions that make them more vulnerable) from rapid virus spread, and helps to
avoid overwhelming our health system.

Justice for Kayla Moore -Youth Poverty Skola Reports-

Kayla Moore’s Story 
By Amir Hughes
 
Tuesday 2020 January 7, we went to a protest for Kayla Moore because she hasn't had justice from the court or from the police, and the family of Kalya Moore is still fighting.
 

Profile of Ziair

He was crazy in my opinion. Jumping and shaking and twitching, filled with a manic energy that was somewhat infectious, spreading throughout the room like static electricity. Shocking me and revitalizing my spirit as he continued with his introduction.
 

The Rock

On October 14th, I woke up so early the sun wasn’t even out. It was 2’oclock. My Decolonize family Tiny, Mute, Tiburcio, and I, Kimo, and more to come we're going to Alcatraz. We raced to the van wrapped in a blanket, in preparation for how cold it would be.
