Candidates for Los Angeles City Mayor and County Supervisor Commit to Working with One LA


350 One-LA-IAF leaders gathered at St. Brigid Catholic Church in South Los Angeles with candidates for Los Angeles mayor and District 3 County Supervisor. Candidates committed to work with One-LA on affordable housing, homelessness, healthcare, mental health and quality job training that would allow Angelenos to live in Los Angeles.

One-LA leaders presented a common agenda that cut across faith, race, and geographic lines. Local leaders shared stories about the issues they and their communities are facing. A young Latino father shared his 2-month wait to get emergency mental health services for his 14-year-old daughter, a homeless service provider volunteer recounted the bureaucratic mess to find a home for a man who lost his housing solely due to medical debt, and a Black mother and veteran shared how her family was priced out of their rental home in Jefferson Park

An underlying issue mentioned throughout the afternoon was the inability for the County and City of Los Angeles to work together effectively. Every candidate agreed to work with One LA members on making the government accountable to Angelenos.

“As people of faith we grieve and gather… we mourn and mobilize.. we take action. We are not waiting to be rescued, today we gather to build a more just and equitable city,” declared Rabbi Dara Frimmer from Temple Isaiah during the invocation.
