7 – 9 p.m. Free to the public

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you were at a party that was shut down by the police? What if you were stopped and searched by law enforcement because you resembled someone else? How should you act? What should you do? Is your experience with law enforcement different if you live in Compton or in Pacific Palisades? Is that about race or zip code? Acting on concerns sparked by their deepening relationship, students on the Watts and Pacific Palisades Young Angels teams are hosting a panel to discuss teens and the law. The panel is made up of students from both teams and the young professional comics of The Young Angels Comedy project. The discussion will be facilitated by Cyn Yamashiro, Director of the Center for Juvenile Justice at Loyola Law School and criminal defense attorney, Steve Cron. This event is a joint production of the Young Angels Pacific Palisades and Watts teams. # # # #
