City Councilmember Curren Price—joined by the Stanford Black Alumni Association of Southern California and Walter Thompson-Hernandez, a Los Angeles-based multimedia journalist—will host on June 4 an open dialogue that examines the current race and political climate between the black and brown community. The event, titled “Black and Brown Relational and Political Intersectionality in Los Angeles and Beyond,” is aimed at engaging Angelenos in an honest conversation on race, ethnicity and identity.
Latinos and African-Americans make up an overwhelmingly majority of Council District 9, which Price has represented since 2013. Emphasizing the need for bridge-building, the Councilmember and partners seek to unify African Americans and Latinos—who often face similar challenges like discrimination, poverty, unemployment, and mass incarceration—by having them share their experiences. The event, from 2-4 p.m. at the Tom Bradley Tower Room at LA City Hall, includes a special presentation by Thompson-Hernandez, a writer, researcher and self-described “Blaxican” who is both black and Mexican descent. As global cities like Los Angeles become increasingly multiracial and multi-ethnic, this project asks: How can diverse communities more effectively work together to secure a brighter future?
This is the first in a series of discussions that will focus on the issues of race and politics. Refreshments will be provided. To RSVP for this event, please click here
The empowerment of adolescent girls and women is a top priority for my office. I sincerely believe that if our communities are to prosper, we must invest in, encourage and support women of all backgrounds.
In 2016, history was made in South Los Angeles as hundreds of Latinas joined my office at the inaugural "Mujeres Empowered for Success," the first-ever Latina Conference in the Ninth District. I am delighted to announce that I will be hosting the 2nd Annual Latina Conference on Saturday, May 20 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College (400 W. Washington Blvd., LA 90015).
This will be a day of day of networking, education and empowerment so please help us spread the word to family, friends and neighbors. I can honestly say that it is one of my favorite yearly events because it celebrates women of color in our community.
The free conference will feature leaders and experts working in the areas of Civic Engagement, Education, Health, Immigration, Social Justice, Women’s Rights, and much more. Like last year, attendees will be treated to motivational speakers, insightful panel discussions, live entertainment and essential resources and valuable information. Thanks to the generosity of our partners, guests will also receive complimentary breakfast, lunch and other goodies.
I look forward to meeting you on May 20 as we honor the outstanding contributions of women and help shape the leaders of tomorrow! Please register online here. However, if you would like more information, please call my District Office at (323) 846-2651.
¡Gracias y que vivan las mujeres!
