Events

We hope you will join us Thursday, June 20, 2019, along with fellow Assembly District 50 residents and business owners for an opportunity to learn about the services the District Office can provide you and to hear about the work the Assemblymember is doing on your behalf in Sacramento.

Donations of new backpacks and school supplies for the upcoming school year are greatly appreciated, but not required. Your donation of a new backpack or new school supplies reduces the financial burden to families and increases student readiness, leading to better educational outcomes. The items collected will be distributed to students at the Annual Hollywood Family Resource Fair in July.

At a time when anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, homophobic and racist behavior is on the rise, this hearing takes on increased importance. Expert panels will examine the current state of hate speech and crimes in California in an effort to explore ways to more effectively address it.

The first hearing, in association with Santa Monica College’s Public Policy Institute, will feature a panel discussion comprised of representatives from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the LA County Human Relations Commission, Loyola Marymount University's (LMU) Center for the Study of Los Angeles, and the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Counter- Terrorism & Special Operations Bureau.
