The nomination period is open through May 31 for the annual Tribute to SHeroes Awards. Each year, Councilman Curren Price selects 25 extraordinary women in the 9th District who are doing great things for the community.
A “SHero” is a woman who has demonstrated leadership, pride, volunteerism and commitment to her community. To be eligible for this distinction, nominees must live and/or have ties to the Ninth District.
Honorees will be announced in June and honored at an awards luncheon on August 19, 2018. Submit nominations by clicking here.
I was moved this morning by the loud and large turnout at the “Save a Life” rally in support of temporary homeless housing facilities.
Please know that in Council District 9 we are working fervently to address every layer of the homeless crisis in front of us. From establishing the first safe parking program in Los Angeles; launching a mobile toilet and hand washing station; bringing mobile showers to help people living on the streets get clean. Now, here’s some more news! Next week, we’ll be rolling out a new laundry service that will allow people experiencing homelessness to wash and dry their clothes for FREE.
On a larger scale, you might have heard that my Office has authorized building more than 295 units of permanent supportive housing in the Ninth District over the course of the next several years. And, my staff, with input from local community stakeholders, are vetting possible locations for an emergency shelter and examining bridge housing solutions. Rest assured that I will continue to update and inform you every step of the way, and we will make sure constituents have a direct line to provide feedback.
If you have any questions about homelessness or any other local issue, please call my Constituent Services Center at (323) 846-2651. Remember, any one of us could fall into homelessness at any time, and our actions to combat this epidemic ought to be guided by love, compassion and respect.
Did you know the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is bringing thousands of new jobs to the 9th District?

Don't miss out on this great opportunity for a career in construction!
