Congratulations to our friends an partners in Fresno!

Please join the YLI family in congratulating two Fresno-YLI youth advocates, Janet Salcedo and Brianna Cantu,  in their work on a neighborhood-change campaign in South-East Fresno.  At last weeks Healthy Food Healthy Communities Press conference, Janet and Brianna shared their work on community issues regarding excessive liquor outlet and neighborhood saturation in their church neighborhood.

The attached links are four media stories that covered the Healthy Stores for a Health Community News Conference. Media representatives from the following agencies attended the news conference: Vida en el Valle, ABC 30, NBC KSEE 24, Univision KPTV 21, CBS 47, the Fresno Bee, and The Business Journal.
