Come make your voice heard this Friday, Feb. 19 from 10am-12pm at at the Statewide Hearing on Poverty and the Real Economy. The event will be held at SEIU at 1545 Wilshire Blvd in Los Angeles.
Elected officials from the state Assembly and Senate will be there, providing an important opportunity for those who can’t go all the way up to Sacramento to speak out. The hearing will focus on the state budget and its impact on the benefits, programs, and services created to serve low-income residents and the key implications of the economy on our state. Campaigns to end homelessness and to raise SSI/SSP, two of the major policy initiatives of Hunger Action LA and numerous other organizations in the L.A. area, are on the agenda.
In addition, you can record a video testimony that can be used at different times during the legislative season (if you wish to record a testimony or know someone who does, please arrive at 9 am!)
