March 2021 marks my fifth year as Speaker of the California State Assembly. We’ve made notable progress in addressing education inequity, immigrant rights, and police brutality. However, there is much more work to be done.
We've been heavily impacted by this pandemic. COVID-19 has exacerbated many inequalities from housing to education to income, and communities of color have less access to COVID-19 vaccines.
My office and I are working to bring more vaccination sites to our communities and get our seniors vaccinated.
You can find information about COVID-19 vaccination sites, testing, food assistance, and other resources on LA County's website here.
This month, the R-Guide is dedicated to exceptional people and businesses in Southeast LA: Lakewood soccer star, Jalen Neal; Latina-owned business, Cake and Coffee House in South Gate; and Paramount business, Marukan Vinegar, U.S.A.
