BayPeace Youth Resource Fair draws a crowd

The photos above show some of the great goings-on at the Positive Opportunities for Youth Resource Fair held last week in Oakland, CA. The afternoon event was organized by BayPeace (Better Alternatives for Youth) in Oakland. The resource fair included performances by students and a visit to that evening's school board meeting to hand-deliver their 160-foot roll (!) of signed Youth Manifesto petitions asking the board to adopt a policy that would protect students from getting aggressively pursued by military recruiters.

Thanks to Jeff Paterson for taking photos, and to Susan Quinlan for sending them!
