Youth Emerging Stronger Announces the Appointment of Aaron Liskin to its Board of Directors

PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, July 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Youth Emerging Stronger (YES), formerly known as Los Angeles Youth Network, announces the appointment of Aaron Liskin to its Board of Directors.

Aaron is a partner at well-known boutique entertainment litigation law firm Kinsella, Weitzman, Iser, Kump & Aldisert LLP (KWIKA). His practice encompasses entertainment litigation, intellectual property and general commercial litigation disputes, including matters involving profit participation, music royalties, contract, fraud, copyright, defamation, unfair competition and partnership disputes. He is a member of the firm's team currently representing Frank Darabont and CAA against AMC for "Walking Dead" profits.

When asked about joining the YES board Liskin said, "When I look at the current state of the world around me, I ask myself what I can do to be more engaged. How can I help? Growing up in Los Angeles, I am deeply saddened by the extent of our city's homelessness epidemic and its ever-increasing population of youth homeless. When I found out about YES and the great work they do for our local homeless youth, I immediately knew that joining the YES Board is how I can make a difference. I am honored that they have asked me to join."

"Aaron's commitment to making a difference in the Los Angeles youth homelessness problem is inspiring and arising from an authentic desire to transform our city," said Teo Martinez, YES's Board Chairman. "YES's unique approach to supporting Los Angeles homeless and runaway youth is to give them the tools to thrive, and Aaron is an excellent addition to make this happen."

Liskin joins YES during a time of great need for the Los Angeles youth homeless population. The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority released the results of the 2020 homeless count (which was tallied prior to the COVID-19 outbreak) and the results indicated a 12.7% overall homelessness increase in LA County; with a 19% increase for Transitional Age Youth (18-24). 

Annually, YES houses over 325 youth, provides more than 16,000 bed nights and 97,000 meals, to youth 12-24 years old. In September 2020, the organization will be celebrating 35 years of service to the community.
