The LACDP meeting was held on Tuesday July 11.  LACDP released a statement condemning the Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action.  The need to strengthen California’s community college system, which largely benefits underprivileged and minority communities, was highlighted.

The July 4th hotel strikes were then discussed.  Ada Briceno, who represents the hotel labor union Unite Here, discussed these actions.  She also noted that there will be further strikes and provided names of some of the hotels, mostly in the LAX area, that will be targets of future strikes.

Lastly, candidates for the Executive Board of LACDP gave speeches, including AD 66 residents Jacob Haik and Wade Kyle.  The next LACDP meeting will take place on September 12.
