South Kern Sol held three events this summer aimed at shining a light at issues impacting youth throughout our Kern County. During the kick-off of South Kern Sol’s Youth Summer Series, outside of the Mesa Verde Detention Center, a young leader read a letter demanding change. “When I see statistics and things that Kern County is recognized for it is not positive. We don’t want to be number one in Chlamydia and Gonorrhea infections, have high rates of illiteracy and have poisoned water.” Read the letter at South Kern Sol.
