Join Us In Honoring our 2015 "Sheroes"

I am proud to announce the selection of 20 remarkable women from the New Ninth District as this year's "SHero" honorees. I began this tradition while I was in the State Assembly, I continued as a State Senator, and now I am very proud to bring this to the Council District. This special event gives us a chance to honor the commitment and dedication of the powerful women who create so much positive change in our community, and often are thanked enough. Nominated by their co-workers, neighbors and friends, these women are helping to improve our neighborhoods as small business owners, educators, activists and advocates. 
I'd like to cordially invite all of you to attend our 8th Annual "Tribute to Sheroes" Awards Ceremony, held on Sunday, May 17, 2015 at 1pm, in the ballroom of the Radisson Hotel Los Angeles. Cocktail attire is suggested. At this year's event we are pleased to welcome Pat Prescott, famed 97.7 FM KWAVE disc jockey, as well as Araceli Campos, President of the City of Los Angeles Commission on the Status of Women, and well as special performances from Get Lit -Words Ignite and Trio Ellas.  Please click here to RSVP for this fabulous event.
