Like many of you, I have been sickened by recent federal policies that have led to heartless and traumatizing separations of immigrant children from their families. I have always been a champion of child rights and strongly believe in protecting the safety and interests of our children.

Dear Neighbors,

This past week’s shooting in Maryland marks the 17th school shooting we have had this year. Tragedies such as these demonstrate that raising public awareness about gun violence, creating more civically minded students and supporting fellow students at this Saturday’s March For Our Lives event at Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles is more critical now than ever.

Dear Neighbors,

Next Tuesday, March 14, more than 2,000 Culver City students will be joining thousands of other Angelenos in a nationwide walkout to honor the victims of the Parkland, Fla., shooting.

Students will congregate for one hour on the Culver City High School football field to rally and deliver speeches expressing their concerns and worries about their own safety.

Dear Neighbors,

This flu season is one of the most severe in recent years. As of January 10, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health reported 36 flu-related deaths in our area. At this same time last year, the county had only experienced 13 flu related deaths. Flu-related emergency room visits are up 130 percent!

Dear Neighbors,

As you may know, protecting children and reforming the juvenile and criminal justice systems have long been one of the reasons I sought to serve you. Last week, a majority of California lawmakers agreed with me and approved my bills to put greater emphasis on prevention, rehabilitation and maintaining family cohesion.
