VAYLA-NO is a multi-issue youth organizing group working on campaigns addressing educational equity, environmental justice, and health equity. All campaigns are developed by young people and intended to promote policies that increase access to excellent public education and a healthy environment for young people who are racially, geographically or linguistically marginalized. A one-year $30,000 core grant tin 2011 will enable Vietnamese American Young Leaders Association of New Orleans to organize to address educational inequities and environmental degradation in the multi-racial communities of New Orleans East.
