Memorial for Durrell and Deon

"My son's and Deon's deaths showed the world that California's youth prisons are a national disgrace. We can build a new way of taking care of our youth in trouble. My son shall not have died in vain."
         --Allen Feaster, father of Durrell Feaster

On January 19, 2003, the abuse and isolation of CYA drove Durrell Feaster and Deon Whitfield to take their lives. The system that was supposed to give them a second chance left them no hope. Two years later, the CYA has failed to close the dangerous youth prisons that cost these young men their lives.

Next Thursday, we will gather in the East Bay to honor Durrell, Deon, and all of the families who have lost youth to the CYA youth prisons. Please join us for an evening that promises to be moving and inspirational.
