Co-sponsored by Supervisors Hilda Solis and Mark Ridley-Thomas, the initiative created a truly a historic moment, with 45 advocates offering public testimony in favor of passage of the recommendations. In addition, Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas stepped up to make sure all 13 of the CEII recommendations were included in the motion, not just the preliminary four.
At the same meeting, the Board declared April to be ArtsMonth in the county of Los Angeles and presented Arts for LA with a beautiful scroll to launch the month.
To continue this work, there will be an event Wednesday, April 19, for ArtsDay LA at City Hall in downtown Los Angeles. Our united voices and the coalition of arts advocates make all the difference.
