AWARE-LA White anti-racist Saturday dialogues, Saturday Dialogue is a gathering for white anti-racists who want to discuss issues of identity, community, privilege and racism in our lives with the intention to strengthen our practice as anti-racists in alliances, relationships, and interactions with people of color.

Regular, recurring dialogues throughout the year focus on the intersections of multiple identities, including Race and Class, Sexuality and Race, and Gender and Race. Other workshops focus on relationships, Radical White Identity and Community, and issues such as police and the prison industrial complex, immigration, and gentrification.

We currently have four monthly Saturday Dialogues, which used to meet in various places throughout LA County, and are temporarily meeting online through Zoom. We also have one monthly “Online Sunday Dialogue” which was originally made available for folks who cannot make it to meetings in LA, or on Saturdays. Sign up here to receive reminder emails about Saturday Dialogues. We strongly encourage you to attend a Saturday Dialogue Orientation before attending a Saturday Dialogue. See below for more info.

BAOC presents The Continued Resistance to Free Our Family 1-6p, Black August kick-off event. Via zoom:


The birth, meaning and practice of Black August by Kevin ‘Rashid’ Johnson

Black August is a month designated to pay tribute to the true heroes, martyrs and history of New Afrikan (Black) people in our struggles for liberation against over 400 years of violent repression, suffering and exploitation that we have endured under the systems of bondage here in the Western Hemisphere.

Many important events that occurred and the lives of people who contributed to our struggles fell within the month of August and coincide with our need to know, remember and commemorate the people and events that have fed the flame of our struggle to yet be free.

The concept of Black August began in the California prison system in response to the assassinations of political prisoners and prisoners of war held there, such as George L. Jackson, W.L. Nolen, Jeffrey “Joka Khatari” Gaulden and others. Joka Khatari, a torchbearer of Comrade George Jackson, died on Aug. 1, 1978. He died at the hands of California prison officials at San Quentin who refused him medical care for head injuries sustained while playing football.


Committee for Racial Justice presents: Critical Race Theory: What Is It and Why It Matters, 6:30-8p zoom meeting open to all. Register here to be sent the zoom link:

Critical Race Theory is a widely misunderstood concept that conservatives are attempting to demonize in an effort to scare folks into supporting their political goals. Southern California school districts (like others around our country) already have started to experience pushback on curriculum that gets students talking about social justice issues and equity concerns. A panel of experts will help us understand this controversy and how we can help by talking with others more clearly about Critical Race Theory and the importance of understanding the systemic nature of the racism which still surrounds us. Moderated by Dr. Richard Tahvildaran-Jesswein, SMC Professor of Government & Race & Ethnicity and member of the school board for the Santa Monica/Malibu Unified School District.Among our panelists will be Dr. Ben Drati, District Superintendent of SMMUSD, and Dr. John Pascarella, Chief Academic Officer of K12 Professional Learning at the USC Race and Equity Center.  We expect to also have a representative from the Critical Race Studies program at UCLA to add to the panel. Interested folks not already on the CRJ email list can go the Committee For Racial Justice Facebook page closer to Aug. 1st for updates.

For more information, call Joanne at 310-422-5431.

Sep. 26 – Oct. 2 Banned Books Week

Statewide Redistricting by the 2020 California Citizens Redistricting Commission

Every 10 years, after the federal government publishes updated census information, California must redraw the boundaries of its Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly and State Board of Equalization districts, so that the districts correctly reflect the state’s population.

California voters authorized the creation of the Commission when they passed the VOTERS FIRST Act in 2008. It authorized the Commission to draw the new district lines. In 2010, the Congressional Voters FIRST Act added the responsibility of drawing Congressional districts to the Commission.

The 14-member Commission is made up of five Republicans, five Democrats, and 4 not affiliated with either of those two parties. The Commission must draw the district lines in conformity with strict, nonpartisan rules designed to create districts of relatively equal population that will provide fair representation for all Californians.

The Commission must hold public hearings and accept public comment. After hearing from the public and drawing the maps for the House of Representatives districts, 40 Senate districts, 80 Assembly districts, and 4 Board of Equalization districts, the Commission must vote on the new maps to be used for the next decade.

The Commission will have one year to determine and approve the district maps. During this time period, the commissioners will be performing complex tasks that include, but are not limited to, the following:

Draw District Lines: The primary function of the Commission is to draw the Congressional, State Senate, State Assembly, and State Board of Equalization district lines. These four maps will be the product of the redistricting process after public debate and compromise through different iterations of proposed district maps.

Hold Public Meetings: Any meeting involving at least nine commissioners must be in a public meeting environment. As the commissioners perform their important work drawing district lines, they will be holding public meetings throughout the State. In these public meetings, the commissioners will solicit and receive public input as they determine which communities share common interests and should share common representation. Each meeting will require multiple members of the Commission to attend and will likely be conducted in the evenings and on weekends to allow for greater public participation in this important process.

Research and Analyze: The commissioners will also be reviewing and discussing pertinent data used to set geographic boundaries for districts. This information includes the 2020 census data from which the districts will be drawn, computer modeling of the census data to create potential districts, the public input discussed above, and the discussion and compromise that accompanies such an important process, that will impact California for 10 years.

Hire Support Staff: The commissioners will be very busy performing their duties, so they will hire administrative and support staff as needed. Some of the Commission’s tasks will include: drafting and promulgating regulations; appointing a staff director; scheduling meetings and hearings, and notifying interested parties; maintaining records of the Commission’s deliberations; overseeing payroll, travel reimbursements, equipment purchases, and maintenance; and communicating with individuals who request information regarding the Commission’s progress.

Prepare Legal Defense: State law grants the Commission sole legal standing to defend any action regarding a certified map. After the maps are approved, the Commission may need to defend the maps if there are any lawsuits. The final maps will be subject to public scrutiny and possible challenge which may result in swift proceedings before the California Supreme Court. In that event, the Commission would likely hire an attorney to defend the maps on its behalf.

COVID-19 has delayed many things, including our ability to access census data to help us draw district maps. The California Supreme Court ruled on July 17, 2020 (Legislature of CA v Alex Padilla S262530) that the Commission should have until December 15, 2021 to submit its maps to the California Secretary of State due to the delay in release of census results. If census results are received after July 31, 2021, the Commission’s deadline would be adjusted accordingly.

On February 12, 2021, the Census Bureau announced it would deliver redistricting data to all states by September 30, 2021. A two-month delay after July 31 in the state receiving the Census data means that the Commission’s final maps would be due two months after December 15.

U.S. District Court has dismissed the Ohio lawsuit that challenged the delayed release of redistricting data and asked that the Census Bureau comply with the April 1 statutory deadline.

During the Ohio lawsuit, the Census Bureau made the determination that it will provide a legacy format summary of the P.L. 94-171 datasets, with all geographic units and all substantive data tabulations, by mid to late August.

We are working with the Legislature and others to minimize the impact of the delay on

the 2022 elections.

L.A. County Redistricting Commission

Summer Public Hearings

During Summer 2021, the Citizens Redistricting Commission (CRC) will conduct ten (10) public hearings, ensuring residents’ ability to participate from all five Supervisorial Districts. At these public hearings, the CRC will present an overview of the redistricting process, legal considerations, outreach efforts, public access plan, and a timeline.

Your input is valuable. These public hearings are important for receiving public comments and input from communities of interest (COI), including what the CRC should consider in the redistricting effort. Members of the public are welcome to make live comments at the public hearings. Please fill in the COI Form to speak or submit public comments ahead of, during, or after the public hearing.

A community of interest (COI) is a contiguous population that shares common social and economic interests that should be included within a single district for purposes of its effective and fair representation. Communities of interest shall not include relationships with political parties, incumbents, or political candidates. Click here for more information on COI.

You can attend more than one public hearing. The zones do not represent the only time you can provide input. If you are unable to attend the scheduled public hearing for your area, please attend another or submit written comment. The zones for the public hearings has no relationship to the map for the Supervisorial Districts. The zones are intended to allow communities of interest to express their ideas in smaller settings.
