Media Briefing: How Los Angeles County Fire Keeps Us Safe

  • WHAT: Media briefing with LA County Fire and community stakeholders
  • WHY: Learn how LA County Fire deals with a dramatic rise in 911 calls — over 1000 a day —  for medical emergencies, fires and natural disasters across one-third of LA County, despite overstretched resources, aging infrastructure and outdated communications equipment. What do they need to keep us safe in the future — and why?
  • WHEN: Thursday, July 25, 2019; 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Media Briefing: Proposed Changes to “Public Charge” Policies for Immigrants (in Korean)

  • WHAT: Korean media briefing with Asian Americans Advancing Justice, National Immigration Law Center, and the California Immigrant Policy Center
  • WHY: The Trump administration has proposed a new rule to make it easier to deport immigrants who are legal permanent residents who have used public benefits that include cash welfare, food stamps, housing aid or Medicaid. The change in policy would expand the meaning of those who are considered “public charges,” and therefore threaten legal immigrants who are eligible to use public benefits, including those who are low-income or refugees.
  • WHEN: Friday, July 26, 2019; 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
  • WHERE: Asian Americans Advancing Justice – Los Angeles, 1145 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90017
