L.A Board of Supervisors Jan Perry Speaks With Millennials in Leimert Park

Leimert Park, CA—2020 Los Angeles Board of Supervisors Candidate Jan Perry spoke with millennials in Leimert Park earlier this week. The event was hosted by ForUs4Us, a community organization committed to challenging the current process of gentrification in Leimert Park through events, podcasting and information sharing.

The event was held at Hot and Cool Cafe, a cultural hub for the community of Leimert Park. Here, vegan food is served and the walls are decorated with Black Art, including a stunning painting of the late Nipsey Hussle.

I was asked to present a few recent events of what I considered the most pressing issues the community is currently facing. In no particular order I mentioned the current homeless crisis, gun violence and genocide as well as gentrification.

Jan Perry is the current Executive Director of the Economic & Workforce Development Center and is a former L.A City Councilwoman, serving the 9th district of South Central. She graduated from USC with a degree in Journalism and a Masters Degree in Public Administration.
