There are lots of reasons to love the Golden State — from its stunning beaches and picturesque mountains to its entrepreneurial spirit, trailblazing laws and incredible diversity.
But at what cost? “Not So Golden” offers a glimpse into how many California young adults are making it work.
This California Youth Media Network project is a collaboration between Boyle Heights Beat, The kNOw, We’Ced and YR Media. The work was produced by a team of young journalists from Fresno, Los Angeles, Merced and Oakland. See the full project at notsogolden.org.
