Neighborhood Councilman Wesley Farrow, Los Angeles, CA
YEO Network is needed! I can't think of any other group like this. YEOs have to know that there are others like them in this country. The sharing of policy ideas is extremely valuable.

YEO is a tremendous asset. It's an opportunity to innovate and advance progressive policy change.
