Northridge, CA – Thursday, The Resistance Northridge, will hold a protest rally in coordination with several other local resistance groups at the Mike Pence GOP Fundraiser this week.  

Mike Pence will be at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Thursday, September 14th to host a fundraiser dinner for the GOP California Representatives that are vulnerable in the 2018 mid-terms. While Pence is there pandering to the 1%, We, the People will be outside engaging in Democracy. We, the People, who represent America, will be calling Pence and the GOP to task to represent all Americans no matter race, color, creed, or sexual orientation.  The message of the rally focuses on the point that our Democracy should not be for sale. 

Counter fundraising is also planned to benefit organizations, such as Swing Left, Planned Parenthood, CHIRLA, Black Lives Matter, LGBT Center, and many others.  Feel free to donate in the name of Mike Pence. 

Voter Registration will also be taking place.  Anyone who is looking to take a more active role in civic engagement, let us know and we will connect you with a group in your neighborhood. 

Parking: Parking restrictions before 6 (1--2-hour parking during the workday) no restrictions after 6, during weekdays.  We looked at some residential streets N, of Wilshire, such as Walden (2 hour before 6), Linden (1 hour before 6) Roxbury (no parking 8-5).  Therefore, no limitations after 6 on many of the streets. There is also a 2 story lot that runs a few blocks between Santa Monica and Little Santa Monica, has paid parking before 6 and free parking after 6.  You may also want to consider carpooling or using a service like Lyft or Uber. 

Media is encouraged

Ballot measures R, M and H will transform Los Angeles County into a more livable, sustainable and equitable place in which to live. But with these game-changing measures under our belts we are bringing our coalition together again for another of our Annual Transportation Conversations — the 9th! — in order to discuss which problems might all tackle next.

REGISTER HERE TO RECEIVE EARLY BIRD DISCOUNTED REGISTRATION for Transportation Conversation 9 at the Conference Center at LA Cathedral on October 27th.

Our coalition has been expanded beyond the original business-labor-environmental constituencies. It now includes faith-based organizations, advocates for social justice and for a more bike and pedestrian-friendly LA County, seniors, people with disabilities, and students. And as our coalition expanded, perhaps our ambitions should expand too.

What’s next LA? Of course we should engage in the implementation of Measures R and M. Our rail system is growing, but bus ridership is declining, and that's not good enough when voters just approved major new operations funding.

Should we also work to make sure the affordable housing program in LA County is more robust, especially near transit stations, and that anti-displacement strategies are in place?

Should we join our environmental & environmental justice allies to seek a real solution to LA County's longstanding air pollution challenge while also achieving enormous reductions in greenhouse gases? 

JOIN US AT the Conference Center at LA Cathedral on October 27th from 8:30am to 4:30.

WOMEN OF COLOR AND THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY 
FOCUS OF UPCOMING L.A. COUNTY HUMAN RELATIONS COMMISSION
PUBLIC HEARING ON POLICING AND HUMAN RELATIONS
 
Hearing scheduled for Saturday, September 23 at L.A. Trade Tech College
 
 
 
LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – Women of color and the LGBTQ community will be the focus of the upcoming countywide Policing and Human Relations public hearing of the Los Angeles County Human Relations Commission.  The hearing will take place Saturday, September 23, 2017, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Los Angeles Trade Tech College’s Sage Cafeteria (400 W. Washington Blvd.). The hearing is the sixth in a series of public hearings that are being used as opportunities to assist the Commission in strengthening trust between police and communities, and advancing positive intergroup relations through policing practices. Members of the community are invited to share their experiences of interactions with law enforcement, including the LAPD, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), within Los Angeles County and/or provide recommendations to address policing issues.
 
 
According to the 2016 Report on the Status of Women in Los Angeles County there are 5.1 million women and girls living in L.A. County.  L.A. County has experienced an increase in women of color over the past decade, with the population increasing from 71% in 2006 to 74% in 2014.  UCLA Law think tank The Williams Institute estimated in 2016 that out of the 1.3 million LGBT residents in California, over 31% percent live in Los Angeles County.
 
 
The hearing is being presented in conjunction with the African American Policy Forum, Gender Justice LA, TransLatin@ Coalition and the San Fernando Valley’s Somos Familia Valle.
