Event description
Join your community for a non-partisan forum geared around critical safety-net, child welfare, and housing issues for the Second District.

About this Event

The next Supervisor representing Los Angeles County's Second District on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will face critical policy decisions that will determine the future health and well-being of the county’s most vulnerable children and families. This election presents a key opportunity to ensure that the issues facing vulnerable children and families are heard in the election. We invite you to join us for a community forum where candidates for the Second District Supervisorial seat will share their vision for the issues that will impact the county and the Second District.

Los Angeles County boasts the biggest, best, and brightest in many categories – and the Second District is fundamental to the success of our region. We also face serious challenges: crushing housing costs, an enduring homelessness crisis, and stark and increasing inequality. In this district of 2 million people, such contrasts are clear. These issues range from creating affordable housing, addressing homelessness, protecting and improving children’s health care, ensuring a strong child welfare system and reforming our youth justice system—all have profound implications and long-lasting impact on the 2.3 million children in Los Angeles County.

Southern California Grantmakers, The Chronicle of Social Change, and United Way of Greater Los Angeles is proud to host a candidates forum for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors – Second District. Join us for a nonpartisan, community forum focused on issues around children and families, housing and homelessness, and other critical issues for the Second District.

Candidates:

  • Jake Jeong, Lawyer
  • Holly J. Mitchell, State Senator SD-30
  • Jan Perry, Former LA City Councilmember
  • Herb Wesson, LA City Councilmember

To learn more about the candidates on the issues, we are sharing the candidates' policies related to child welfare, juvenile justice, homelessness, and affordable/supportive housing. You can find them by topic by clicking on the following: Child Welfare, Juvenile Justice, Homelessness, Affordable/Supportive Housing
