6/4 Fireside CharLA featuring Assemblyman Reginald Byron Jones-Sawyer, Sr.


Event Info

The USC Dornsife Program for Environmental and Regional Equity released an analysis of those most at risk of devastating fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. The analysis concluded that marginalized segments of the population, including low-income seniors, undocumented immigrants, and rent-burdened families, face substantial inequities that will affect how well they weather the pandemic. With the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police and the national civil unrest that’s ensued, the endemic inequalities exacerbated by COVID-19 are even more apparent as the nation calls out for systemic change that dismantles institutional racism across every facet of society, not just law enforcement.

Join United Latinx Fund (ULF) and Latino Coalition of Los Angeles (LCLA) on Thursday, June 4th @ 5:30PM for the next installment of our weekly online Fireside CharLA series with featured guest, Assembly Member Reginald Byron Jones-Sawyer, Sr. who will share his efforts to curtail the damaging effects of COVID-19 among our most vulnerable populations, specifically our undocumented neighbors. He will also touch upon the recent murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police, the national civil unrest that’s ensued, and his proposals to address police violence.

Información del evento

El 27 de marzo, el Programa Dornsife para la Equidad Ambiental y Regional de la Universidad del Sur de California (USC) publicó un análisis de las personas con mayor riesgo de consecuencias devastadoras de la pandemia del coronavirus. El análisis concluyó que segmentos marginados de la población, incluyendo a adultos mayores de bajos ingresos, inmigrantes indocumentados y familias sobrecargadas con el costo de las rentas, enfrentan desigualdades sustanciales que afectarán qué tan bien enfrentarán la pandemia. 

Las desigualdades endémicas exacerbadas por el COVID-19 recientemente se volvieron aún más peligrosas con el asesinato de George Floyd por parte de la policía de Minneapolis, lo cúal ha iniciado protestas civiles nacionales, y elevó llamados para el desmantelamiento sistémico del racismo institucional en cada faceta de la sociedad, no solamente en el sistema policiaco .



Reginald Byron Jones-Sawyer, Sr. fue elegido por primera vez en el 2012 para representar a los constituyentes del 59 Distrito de la Asamblea de California (área del sur de Los Ángeles) de la Legislatura del Estado. Siendo Presidente del Comité de Seguridad Pública y del Comité Selecto Para Eliminar El Enlace Entre La Escuela Hacia la Prisión, el asambleísta Jones-Sawyer es un defensor feroz de las segundas oportunidades y de la justicia dentro de la ley.
