The Latino and Latina Roundtable, as part of the Ice Out of Pomona Coalition, invites our members to join us at the Pomona City Council in support of “An Ordinance of the City Council to Comply With the Requirements of the California Values Act in Order to Preserve Public Safety (see the attached city council agenda). The Introduction and First Reading of this Ordinance will take place this Monday, November 11 and the actual vote will take place on Dec. 18. We are not organizing in a big way for Dec. 11 since this is primarily for the introduction and urge our members not to post this on social media. We do ask that you start preparing for Dec. 18th for the actual vote. In the city council agenda (page 3 and bottom of page 4) , you will find the Latino and Latina Roundtable support letter attached (as well as a letter from lawyer Jim Sanbrano who has been a representative of LRT on the coalition). Where: Pomona City Hall When: Dec. 11 and Dec. 18 Time: show up no later than 6 pm to get a good seat inside the city council chambers.
We remind you to join us also in walking with the PEOC and CLEAR in the Christmas parade on Saturday (see announcement below)
