It also brought provided a stage for youth speaking out for the needs of their communities. “The youth of Kern County are here to say that enough is enough; we won’t stand for the lack of investment in our youth, in our education, in our mental health, and in our futures. We are getting loud.” See the images and read the story at South Kern Sol.
