Please join the Office of Councilmember Price in congratulating and celebrating a special member of the team. Kendal Lake is officially graduating with a degree in Political Science and minor in Spanish from Spelman College. Originally from Los Angeles, Kendal became part of Team Price as a Council Aide earlier this year.
“Graduating from the #1 HBCU (Historically Black College or University) is my most extraordinary accomplishment to date,” Kendal said. “Even in the midst of uncertain times, this moment I've worked relentlessly for remains special to me. Congrats Class of 2020, we did it!”
Added Councilmember Price: "To the millions of Class of 2020 graduates across all grade levels, while this may not be how you imagined marking such a milestone, remember that afflictions and adversity are part of life. However, they also produce endurance, strength, wisdom and character."
Do you have questions about the Census? As part of Councilman Curren Price's ongoing public education efforts, he is partnering with the Mayor’s Office of the Census to host a live discussion titled "Census 101: Making South LA Count" on Thursday, June 25 at 11 a.m.
Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, participation in the 2020 Census count is more imperative than ever. With billions of dollars on the line to support communities over the next decade, getting an accurate count can make a world of difference.
The Census is held every 10 years to determine how much federal funding each state receives annually for education, healthcare, housing, and other social safety net programs. The Census also determines the apportionment of Congressional seats and redistricting at all levels of government.
Los Angeles’ hardest-to-count area is Council District 9. Tune in and find out why we can't afford an undercount. Submit your questions ahead of time to email@example.com to get answers by the experts. Mark your calendars, it is sure to be an informative discussion.
