Message from MRT, November 2013

Welcome to the November newsletter. As usual we have a lot in store for you.

I’d like to begin on a serious note and discuss the plight of children who are being trafficked. Increasingly, children are being bought and sold not only abroad and across the nation, but also right here on the streets of Los Angeles County. We are taking action against those who exploit our children, and I am inviting you to join me on November 21st for an evening march and rally along Long Beach Boulevard. Save the date and check back here for more details.

I’d also like to extend my heartfelt thanks to the hundreds of medical professional who volunteered their services for the recent Care Harbor free clinic. Almost 4,000 people went to the Sports Arena late last month for desperately needed health care. As troubling as it is to see so many people who are sorely in need of medical and dental attention, it is also inspiring to see the hundreds of volunteers who line up to help them.

Lastly, I’d like to call to your attention is our monthly architecture feature, which displays the design jewels of the Second district. Sometimes we highlight classic buildings; sometimes we choose modern sites that stretch the definition of architecture. This month’s choice embraces both classic and modern structures: beautiful Loyola Marymount University. Take a look.

Thank you for your attention and have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

With hope,
