Just Us 4 Youth Board and staff extend their sincere condolences to the families affected by the tragic mass shooting in Monterey Park on Saturday, January 21, 2023.


“It’s alarming that our neighboring city has experienced something so tragic and during Lunar New Year, a time when family celebrations should be happening without the thought of fear,” stated Eric Vasquez, Executive Director.  “We stand for peace and don't condone violence. The ability to come together and be there for one another is vital in times like these, so it is important that JU4Y let the community know that we stand ready to help and that we care. We are here to offer whatever services we can to any community members, including hosting and training in restorative listening circles, a practice that aims to open dialogue and build healing relationships. ”


Just Us 4 Youth (JU4Y) is a non-profit mentor-based organization that provides a variety of programs for youth to help them become better people, students, and leaders.   For more information on JU4Y, including restorative listening circles, please visit
