Oakland Police Community Youth Leadership Council

The Oakland Police Community Youth Leadership Council (OPC YLC) was envisioned by Oakland youth who came together after Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson back in 2015 as a way to bring youth voice to the public safety decision making tables. The OPC YLC helps to interrupt the school to prison pipeline by creating and supporting the implementation of policy changes. As we work to create alternatives to policing, we also seek to improve Oakland Police Department practices.
