Rally for Loreto Arizpe and All Youth in Prison

On March 25, supporters of Loreto Arizpe and all youth in prison rallied in front of the Santa Cruz County Courthouse to send a clear message to Bob Lee, the District Attorney for Santa Cruz County. The message is that the California Youth Authority (CYA) will only make problems worse and that Loreto is ready, willing, and able to make very positive contributions to his community.

Bob Lee may be well on the way to pushing Loreto Arizpe deeper into the Injustice System by sending Loreto to the California Youth Authority, directly contradicting his public statements. On February 22, Lee stated that Santa Cruz County would join the CYA ban and that "...while there are no local offenders 'in the pipeline' for sentencing, the county is prepared to use other programs and detention house sentenced offenders until the CYA hearings are completed and recommendations made."

Loreto's sentencing was scheduled to take place during the rally, but has been postponed to a later date.
