2023 Leadership Appreciation Brunch

Pathways to Liberation

Forging A New Future for L.A. by Ending the Incarceration of Girls & Gender-Expansive Youth


This year, we heard from frontline organizers and advocates working towards the liberation of girls and gender-expansive (GGE) youth and learned about the work Liberty Hill partners are doing through our newly launched Liberation Fund—a groundbreaking initiative that centers the unique experiences of GGE youth impacted by mass incarceration.

Special thank you to our keynote speaker award-winning author and President & CEO of Grantmakers for Girls of Color Dr. Monique Couvson, and special guest speakers Executive Director of Young Women’s Freedom Center Jessica Nowlan and Director of the Office of Youth & Community Restoration at the California Health & Human Services Agency Katherine Lucero, for joining our conversation at this year’s event. We’d also like to recognize our wonderful community partners at Arts for Healing & Justice Network and Spirit Awakening Foundation for sharing their powerful youth activist artwork with us that morning.
