Brave. Loved. Articulate. Dynamic. Precious. Safe. Beautiful.

These were the words called out by community members after three young people touched by gun violence shared their stories on a recent Saturday morning at the Inglewood City Hall Community Center.

“You could be anywhere in the world on a Saturday,” said emcee Ashley Wilkerson, “but you chose to come here.”

A poet and activist, Wilkerson believes that words have power. And at this second annual “Youth Survivors Speak Out!” event organized by Mothers in Charge Los Angeles, those words have the power to heal.

As excerpted from the Los Angeles Sentinel:

“My journey in politics began the second I was born,” says California State Assemblywoman Autumn Burke.

Burke, 45, grew up in an environment very familiar to politics. Her mother, Yvonne Braithwaite Burke, won a seat in the U.S. House in 1966, becoming the first African American woman elected to the California assembly and later became the first woman and African American on the L.A. County Board of Supervisors. Burke’s father, Dr. William Burke, is best known as the founder and former long-time president of the city of Los Angeles Marathon, and Chairman of the AQMD Governing Board.
