Black History Month:
VAYLA recognizes the sacrifices and pathways paved by our Black brothers and sisters so that we may all continue the movement work for progress and civil liberties of our young people. This February and every month should be about the work of educating each other on Black History, as Black History is American History, and on being dependable allies for each other.
