The SouthWest Organizing Project (SWOP) is trying to make Coronado Mall more Youth Friendly.
Coronado Mall has a policy that doesn't allow 5 or more young people to walk through the mall together.
This is Youth Discrimination!
We surveyed over 200 High School students and more than 40% said they've been harassed by mall security.
Do you think this is wrong?
Have you been harassed by mall security?
Do you want to see this rule changed?
Call SWOP to get involved.
Help stop youth discrimination
A: Coronado Mall Policy #9 states that:
Q: So what does this rule mean?
A: The rule says that five or more people (three or more on the weekend) can't go to the mall together without a parent or guardian over 21. Even if they are 18 years old!
Q: If you are 16 years old you can work and get a drivers license. If you are 18 years old you can vote, get married and be eligible for the draft. But you can't go to the mall with your friends. How can that be right?
A: There are lots of things that young people can do and take responsibility for. Coronado Mall is discriminating against young people and it is not right.
Q: What can people do to stop this kind of discrimination?
A: People can call the General Manager of Coronado Mall, Randy Sánchez (881-2700) and complain about this rule. People can also get involved in an organized effort to change this rule by calling the SouthWest Organizing Project at 247-8832
