HOPE Involved in Coordinating District 4 Supervisorial Election Forum
HOPE is thrilled to be a contributing member of the Coalition for a Just LA. Since January this diverse group of nonprofit organizations has joined together to coordinate a candidate’s forum for the Los Angeles County District 4 supervisorial seat being vacated by Don Knabe who terms out after 20 years of public service. The election is taking place on June 7th and this is a great opportunity for HOPE to contribute to raising awareness of topics that affect our mission and also to begin a dialogue with the candidates Janice Hahn and Steve Napolitano. “It’s exciting to be a part of an initiative that will help inform the voting public and engage the candidates on issues critical to the communities we serve and that are overseen by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors,” say Ian Nevarez, Manager of Community Relation at HOPE.
The critical need for affordable housing will be addressed as a primary segment of the forum, along with discussions on homelessness, re-entry and recovery, health for all, seniors, and the environment. HOPE has been instrumental in framing the affordable housing component of the event. We are also excited to invite our friends, family, residents, donors, volunteers, colleagues, and business partners to support our efforts and to come hear from the candidates running to be our newest District 4 County Supervisor.
