Annual Inner City Law Center Awards Luncheon

Originally uploaded by CD-13
Today, I was truly honored to receive the Katharine Krause Award from the Inner City Law Center at its annual awards luncheon. The Inner City Law Center serves over 2,000 homeless and working poor individuals and families each year. They are the only full-time provider of legal services headquartered on Skid Row.

I am very proud of the work that I’ve done in partnership with the Inner City Law Center to help combat homelessness. We’ve fought to keep homeless shelters open year-round, to toughen the Ellis Act which protects tenants from eviction, and to help Angelenos who have been challenged by the national foreclosure crisis. I’m looking forward to working together with the Inner City Law Center in the future to help even more Los Angeles residents.
