Hunger Action LA sends condolences to the family of Heather Heyer, who stood up to white supremacist terrorism this past weekend in Charlottesville. She exemplifies the leadership that is lacking in our current presidential administration. It’s a reminder that all of us must stand up against “evil”, that there is no moral equivalency in this struggle, and we need each other’s love and support to prevail.

The poor are constantly under attack, both with violence in the community and from law enforcement and from policies created by those who want to aggrandize the already-wealthy and try to ignore poverty out of existence. Join us in a training on how to protect the far-from-perfect safety net from the certain attacks of upcoming months and years.

Please note, I sent this out last week with the incorrect weekday. It will be Sept. 13, which is a Wednesday.

June 21, 2017: State and Federal Budgets, and Water

Earlier this week the California budget was submitted to the Governor, with mixed good and disappointing news for those struggling in poverty here. He has not officially signed it yet, but it could happen any time now. But the outcomes in Sacramento will be overshadowed by what’s going on in DC, if current trends hold out. This update includes info on how to begin the fight to preserve food assistance benefits for low income people in the hostile environment prevailing now in the federal government.

And as the rays of the sun’s longest day beam down on L.A. for the summer solstice, we can take solace in the fact that we are at least technically out of the drought, but have two issues on water that need your advocacy: extra safe water for human beings (see item number one) and for cheaper water rates for L.A.’s gardens (see item # 3.)

  1. California Budget Continues to Boost Prisons While Modestly Increasing Aid to Low Income Workers
  2. House Republicans in DC Working on Budget That May Include Cuts to Food Assistance
  3. Los Angeles Adopts Urban Ag Incentive Zone Policy/ Advocacy Day Planned for Water Rates Issues in LA Gardens
