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.

Roofless Radio Deep East Oakland- A Grieving Mama

On February 25th, the year 2006, I lost my 16-year-old son due to gunfire. After that it spiraled downhill. I went rom alcohol to perscription drugs. From there, I had an A1 dissection heart surgery. I lost my husband five months ago. Thirty-five years I was with him. His sister sold the house out from underneath me, and I was one the streets. And as of tomorrow, BART is putting us out. So I have no place to go and no money.

Everything is a Waiting List

 

I was on my way home from middle school one day. WHAT! A sheriff deputy is at my house with a pink lockout notice on the door and my mom's in tears. What to do, another homeless family in SF. My mother has been on the Section 8 waiting list for years.
