SOUTH LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Assemblymember Mike A. Gipson (D-Carson); Councilman Marqueece Dawson-Harris (CD8); Councilman Joe Buscaino (CD15) have joined together to hold an “Emergency Public Safety” Town Hall on Friday, Oct. 16, 2015. Bishop Noel Jones and Assemblymember Gipson will join the community for a Prayer Vigil on Monday, Oct. 19, 2015.

“Our communities are suffering,” said Assemblymember Gipson. “Residents fear for their lives and the lives of their children. It’s not safe to stand outside of our homes to just talk with our neighbors and visit with friends. We want to come up with solid and effective solutions to the crimes and violence that have a stronghold in our neighborhoods.”

Law enforcement, housing, community leaders and elected officials will participate in the “Call to Action” Emergency Public Safety Town Hall on Friday at 6 p.m. at Grant AME Church, 10435 So. Central Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90002

On Monday at 6 p.m., Bishop Noel Jones (City of Refuge) and Assemblymember Gipson will lead the “Arresting the Spirit of Violence” Prayer Vigil at 6 p.m. on the corner of Vermont Avenue and Manchester Boulevard.

Assemblymember Gipson stated, “Join us in this united outreach of love. We want to pray for peace with one voice and lift up in prayer those who are victims and their families. We want to pray that those who commit the crimes that put so many innocent people at risk, be touched by our prayers to change their lives.
