Join us! Special guest LAUSD Board Member Monica Ratliff will be speaking. Ms. Ratliff was elected in 2013 with a grassroots campaign and is credited with changing the dynamic on the LAUSD school board by asking the tough questions and getting to the bottom of the iPad scandal, which led to a complete change in top leadership. A lawyer and teacher by trade (Columbia U./UCLA) she is now running for the open LA City Council seat (District 7, Sun Valley-Tujunga). There is only 1 woman currently on the 15 seat City Council, so more qualified women like her are definitely needed! You can read more about her here: https://monicaratliff2017.nationbuilder.com/about
Josef Bray-Ali will also be joining us -- he's a candidate for LA City Council in District 1 (North East LA).
