BSS Safety and Youth Justice Survey

In 2018 BSS developed a survey to capture how safety and justice is experienced by youth of color across multiple contexts. The themes covered in the survey ranged from perceptions of law enforcement, how youth experience criminalization, policing, and incarceration, what youth experience in Los Angeles County and their schools, and the ways that youth want to invest public funds. Those themes formed our campaign pillars and areas of focus.
