This update notes the second day of SEIU Local 99’s work stoppage and strike, as well as the recent L.A. County Motion to rename Grand Park to Gloria Molina Grand Park in honor of the former L.A. City Council and L.A. County Supervisor’s legacy for local government and Latina women in Los Angeles.
Our update also reminds listeners that this Thursday, March 23rd we chat with the Council Member for the 8th district in Los Angeles, Marqueece Harris-Dawson (@mhdcd8). Items for discussion include policies engaging homelessness and housing insecurity in the predominantly Latino and African-American district, the new Destination Crenshaw initiative, L.A.’s relation to the city of Inglewood, and more.
Last but not least, we announce the Barcelona Barrios Excursion. That’s right, J.T. is headed to Spain for the first time ever and invites you to come with; it’s going to be an unforgettable learning experience.
Also, remember to submit your voicemail to the new J.T. Weather Report!
Here are the four easy steps to take when calling into the hotline:
I. Choose an interesting nickname for yourself to keep your anonymity.
II. Tell me which side of The City (or County) you’re calling from.
III. Tell me how you’re liking the weather, or if you’ve seen anything interesting through it like a downed power line, fallen tree, a pack of opossums, etc.
IV. Keep it under a minute! This helps us tune in to more reports rather than less.
***And if you’d like to keep your number anonymous as well, did you know that pressing *67 before you dial a number keeps your number blocked? That’s right!
Submit your voicemail to the J.T. Weather Report at (213) 458-5042.
