Dear Community Partner,
We are in a particular time in our history when the horrific effects of the constant barrage of hateful attacks on our communities leaves us no choice but to be bold and unified. We are called to action today like never before. On behalf of the over 270,000 residents in South LA we ask you to join us in our call to action and sign on to our policy platform, #Slate4Justice. Please join us so that collectively we share our voices as leaders and advocates and as a united voter coalition marching towards the Nov. 3rd general election.
We are being challenged emotionally, professionally, personally, and morally; and yet, we must keep stepping forward ever so courageously as we see our children, mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers risking their personal safety while demanding change. We also know that we are staring at the face of another real threat to our human rights—the potential loss or critical alterations to the Affordable Health Care Act. A threat that comes during the devastation of a global pandemic that now includes members of our Federal Administration and has impacted Black and Brown communities in ways that for many, may not include recovery from the losses. This is in addition to individuals that will lose coverage due to being diagnosed with pre-existing conditions.
We must not lose this momentum in addressing the systems that affect our health, well-being and economic resiliency. The stakes for our work and the communities we serve are on the line.
Chief Executive Officer
