nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_Friends,

This has been another busy week. First, I want to remind you that the census deadline is only in eleven days on September 30th. Please complete the Census now online or at 844-330-2020. Completing the Census is crucial to fund resources to benefit our communities.

Also, last night we were saddened by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who was fearless, relentless, and never afraid to do what is right, and we will forever carry on her legacy.

My motion to create a pilot program in Council District 1 designating social distancing areas in City Parks so that parks may safely reopen while following social distancing guidelines, passed Council this week.

The City Council also passed a resolution that I co-sponsored calling upon the Los Angeles Times to diversify its staff to reflect the demographics of the City, including its Editorial Board. This is important to help ensure that coverage and editorial policies reflect the diversity of our great city.

I continue to provide resources to you such as housing rights and domestic violence workshops, food, and other staples; and help you access other City resources as we continue to deal with the impact of the pandemic.

Be safe and let my staff and I know if we can be of any assistance to you and your family by contacting us at Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org or 213-434-4054.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo Councilmember, First District

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Council Chambers

I have 2 notable items of legislation this week. 

PLUM Committee passed my motion requesting the City Attorney prepare and present an ordinance that would prohibit, and suspend, any certificate of occupancy for any hotel in Los Angeles which is being used to house and detain migrant children and families under the direction of private security companies.  It should be scheduled in Council very soon.

My motion to create a pilot program in Council District 1 that would designate social distancing areas in City Parks so that parks may safely reopen while following social distancing guidelines, passed Council this week as well.

I also joined and six members of the City Council in introducing a resolution passed by the Council calling upon the Los Angeles Times to diversify its staff to reflect the demographics of the City, including its Editorial Board, and meet all the demands listed in the respective letter by the Black and Latino Caucuses of the LA Times Guild that were addressed to Dr. Soon-Shiong, Executive Chairman/Owner of the Los Angeles Times on June 23, 220 and July 21, 2020.

Dear Friend,

I have some promising news for you. In CD 1, this week the spread of the virus is slowing. Infections have slowed to a few dozen a day (half of what they were just a few months ago) and deaths are down to one or two a day.  There will be spikes, but we are moving in the right direction. But, we are still far from where we were before the pandemic.

This is due to your devotion to wearing a mask, keeping your social distance, and washing your hands frequently. Thank you! Let’s keep our commitment to each other so we can overcome this crisis sooner than later.

On Friday, we observed the 19th anniversary of September 11, 2001, a dark day in our nation's history that was turned into a demonstration of our strength and unity. We must never forget our fallen heroes. May They Rest in Peace.

This week I am proud of hosting two Domestic Violence Virtual Workshops. I know that in many families, unfortunately, violence occurs. We brought together experts and agencies that offered help to those who are not safe at home. We have four more workshops through October 1st.

You only have less than three weeks to complete the census. 10 minutes of your time determines how your community is funded for 10 years.

Please also take advantage of a FREE Pop-up Testing in Highland Park on N. Figueroa St. and Ave. 55 on Saturday, September 12th from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. with no appointment necessary. 

Be safe and let my staff and I know if we can be of any assistance to you and your family by contacting us at Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org or 213-434-4054.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

City Council Chambers

I am happy to announce another eventful week in Council where three notable motions of mine were passed unanimously.

Addressing my concerns regarding the widening digital divide between affluent and underserved communities, Council passed my motion asking the Library Department to report on the feasibility of distributing Wi-Fi hotspots across the libraries of CD1.  Even better news, there was an amendment introduced to report on the feasibility of implementing the program citywide.  In conjunction with the Governor's Broadband executive order and a state bill AB 570 providing broadband infrastructure upgrades, there are a lot of opportunities to narrow the gap.

Council also passed another motion seeking an Economic Development Report relative to encouraging and incentivizing women and minority-owned businesses to bid on City contracts and on steps the City can take to ensure that qualified women and minority-owned businesses are awarded contracts with the City.

Last, Council passed a resolution supporting SB 1399 authored by my friend, State Senator Maria Elena Durazo, which would provide protections for garment workers including prohibiting the practice of piece-rate compensation and requiring garment manufacturers and contractors to jointly share legal responsibility for their workers.

KCET 187: The Rise of the Latino Vote - Preview

187 COLLAGE KCET

Councilmember Cedillo was a key leader who fought against Proposition 187, a California ballot measure passed in 1994 that sought to deny public services to undocumented immigrants.  While the initiative was meant to keep the “immigrant threat” at bay, it mobilized non-immigrants and immigrants in Latino communities as well as their allies across the state. The political awakening of this powerful group would dramatically change the state’s electoral politics, transforming the state into a blue and progressive state for the first time. Proposition 187 created new and enduring political fault lines across California and across the nation as well as molded the political careers of a new generation of leaders.

Watch a preview of KCET's depiction of a pivotal moment in California history unfold through more than 20 interviews with major political figures, artists, and thinkers such as California state senator Maria Elena Durazo, Mexican American Legal Defense & Education Fund (MALDEF) President Antonia Hernández and former California State Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez and more. See how the historic events helped awaken a new generation of political Latinos that would soon rise to power including former California State Senator Gil Cedillo, former California State Senate president pro tempore Kevin de León and MALDEF President Thomas Saenz. Watch how the fight for immigrant rights in California influenced artists such as Culture Clash and Lalo Alcaraz. Witness the dawn of a new era in California politics.

Amigos y amigas:

Espero que hayan disfrutado de un feliz y tranquilo fin de semana del Día del Trabajo; quiero recordarles que deben cuidarse, mantener la sana distancia, lavarse las manos con frecuencia y usar mascarilla. Les comparto un video realizado por nuestra comunidad de Pico-Union para recordarle que su salud y seguridad son primero cuando usan una mascarilla.

El Concilio aprobó el Fondo de Justicia de Los Ángeles (Los Angeles Justice Fund), con la parte que le corresponde del fondo de $4 millones destinados a brindar servicios legales a los angelinos que el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional tiene en la mira de la deportación. Por otra parte, en el Comité de Recuperación Ad Hoc COVID-19 pasamos $6 millones para el Fondo Regional y de Recuperación de CARES Los Ángeles que proporciona apoyo económico a vendedores ambulantes.

También me complace informar que el Concilio aprobó $13.7 millones en financiamiento de bonos para Berendo Sage que creará 42 viviendas asequibles en Pico-Unión ¡Bravo por eso!

El último fin de semana de agosto, asistí a una caravana y un mitin para conmemorar el 50 aniversario de la Moratoria Chicana contra la Guerra de Vietnam. Vea y comparta el magnífico video de 10 minutos sobre la Moratoria que el Canal 35 de la Ciudad realizó para su programa LA Currents.

Y, por último, durante esta pandemia cuando las personas deberían estar más seguros en casa, muchos no lo están. Es por eso que estoy lanzando una serie de seis Talleres Virtuales sobre Violencia Doméstica en seis idiomas para quienes son víctimas, o que conocen a alguien que pueda necesitar apoyo o que quiera estar informado.

Ten la confianza en mí y en mi equipo para ayudarte a ti y a tu familia en lo que nos sean posible; si necesitas comunicarte con nosotros escribe a Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org o llámanos al 213-434-4054.

Sinceramente,

TRABAJANDO PARA TI

City Council Chambers

Quiero destacar una de mis mociones que se aprobó esta semana. Como parte de mi compromiso de contra restar la lucha anti migrante de la Administración Trump, el Concilio aprobó el Fondo de Justicia de Los Ángeles (Los Angeles Justice Fund), con la parte que le corresponde del fondo de $4 millones destinados a brindar servicios legales a los angelinos que el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional tiene en la mira de la deportación. Mi enmienda aseguró fondos para servicios legales de casos nuevos y de ya existentes. La ciudad comparte el fondo con el Condado, el Weingart Center y la organización California Community Foundation.

En el Comité de Recuperación Ad Hoc COVID 19, también modifiqué una moción de la que fui coautor con los concejales Rodríguez y Price para agregar otros $2 millones al Fondo Regional y de Recuperación de CARES Los Ángeles de $4 millones que proporciona programas de apoyo económico para nuestros vendedores ambulantes, los más vulnerables con sus pequeñas empresas afectadas por la pandemia.

Esta ordenanza ofrece una mayor protección a los inquilinos en general que la nueva ley del estado (AB 3088 - The Tenant Relief Act de 2020) o la nueva orden de los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC), aunque la nueva ley del estado proporciona algunos beneficios adicionales que los inquilinos deberían considerar.

Dear Friend,

I wish you a happy and relaxing Labor Day weekend, but also want to remind you to be safe, social distance, wash your hands frequently and wear a mask. See the video made by our Pico-Union community to remind you that your health and safety come first by wearing a mask.

The Council passed the Los Angeles Justice Fund which is the City's share of the $4 million fund dedicated to providing legal services to residents served with deportation papers by the Department of Homeland Services. In the Ad Hoc COVID 19 Recovery Committee we passed $6 million for the CARES Los Angeles Regional and Recovery Fund that provides grant programs for street vendors.

I am also happy to share that the Council approved $13.7 million in bond financing for Berendo Sage that will create 42 Affordable Housing Units in Pico-Union in CD 1!

Last weekend, I attended a car caravan and rally commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the Chicano Moratorium against the Vietnam War. Check out the terrific 10-minute video on the Moratorium that the City’s Channel 35 created for their LA Currents Show.

And lastly, during these times in a pandemic where constituents should be Safer at Home, many are not. This is why I am launching a series of six Domestic Violence Virtual Workshops in six languages for those who are victims, know someone who may need support or would like to be informed.

Be safe and let my staff and I know if we can be of any assistance to you and your family by contacting us at Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org or 213-434-4054.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

City Council Chambers

I just want to highlight one of my items that passed the Council this week.  As part of my commitment to address the Trump Administration's ongoing war against immigrants, the Council passed the Los Angeles Justice Fund which is the City's share of the $4 million fund dedicated to providing legal services to residents served with deportation papers by the Department of Homeland Services.  My amendment ensured the continued funding of legal services for existing and new cases, The City shares the fund with the County, the Weingart Center, and the California Community Foundation.

In the Ad Hoc COVID 19 Recovery Committee, I also amended a motion that I co-authored with Councilwoman Rodriguez and Councilman Price to add another $2 million to the $4 million CARES Los Angeles Regional and Recovery Fund that provides grant programs to the most vulnerable and most impacted small businesses by the pandemic, our street vendors.

El Concilio aprobó varias de mis mociones de “Respuesta y Alivio de COVID-19” que incluyen:

  • DWP aprobó un programa piloto en el Distrito 1 para descuentos a lavanderías que proporcionen servicio de lavado de ropa gratis o con descuento a personas con problemas económicos.
  • El Departamento de Personal informará sobre una lista de trabajos de la ciudad y del condado que requieren un requisito de estatus legal y crear un programa que proporcione un camino hacia la ciudadanía a través de los trabajos de la ciudad.
  • El HCID informará sobre la viabilidad de utilizar unidades Airbnb no utilizadas para viviendas asequibles;
  • Autoridad de Monumentos Históricos de El Pueblo de Los Ángeles (El Pueblo) perdonará el pagos de renta a los comerciantes inquilinos de julio a diciembre.
  • CAO, iniciará planes con el Condado de Los Ángeles para crear un desarrollo de vivienda asequible, de uso múltiple en Chinatown; y
  • Los departamentos de la ciudad integrarán un Marco de Gestión de Activos de la ciudad para iniciar proactivamente cualquier cambio necesario en los derechos de zonificación para los lugares con potencial de vivienda asequible.

Semana del 24 al 29 de agosto, 2020

El verano de 1970 - Por Gilberto Cedillo

Gilbert Cedillo, Fútbol Americano en la Escuela Secundaria Roosevelt

Es sábado por la mañana y terminé temprano las tareas de la casa para salir a encontrarme con algunos amigos… de eso hace 50 años. Íbamos a la Moratoria Chicana contra la Guerra de Vietnam. Tenía 16 años y esta sería mi primera vez en una manifestación. A su vez, fueron mis primeros pasos en una larga marcha por un mundo más justo.

Jugaba como mariscal de campo con los Rough Riders de Roosevelt High, y entonces era mi principal meta en la vida. Ese día marché con Mario Chacón y otros amigos a los que mis padres llamaban “greñudos”. Se estima que 30,000 manifestantes hicieron de esta Moratoria la mayor protesta política en la historia de Los Ángeles.

La marcha-protesta fue una gran influencia para jóvenes activistas, como los líderes políticos Esteban Torres y Gloria Molina, los abogados Antonia Hernández y Samuel Paz, el fotógrafo Luis Garza y ​​la maestra María Elena Yepes.

Mi amigo greñudo Mario y yo fuimos compañeros de cuarto en nuestra época en UCLA. Él convirtió en un líder académico y muralista reconocido en San Diego. Yo me dediqué a luchar en el movimiento obrero y político.

Aquella Moratoria terminó en un caos. Oficiales del alguacil Peter Pitchess afirmaron que los oradores y la música en Laguna Park eran un acto ilegal y atacaron a las familias con gases lacrimógenos y macanas antidisturbios. En un instante, el orgullo y alegría se convirtieron en histeria y confusión: Miles de manifestantes desarmados trataban de huir del peligro policiaco.

Como un atleta activo, no me resultó difícil saltar vallas. Me refugié en una casa cercana repleta de activistas de la Cruzada por la Justicia pro derechos de los chicanos en Denver. Cuando las cosas se calmaron, comencé a caminar rumbo a casa. Iba por Whittier Boulevard cuando escuché la voz retumbante de mi padre, un veterano de la guerra de Corea y ex boxeador: "¡Súbete al carro!" Me regaño durante todo el camino y me castigó por semanas.

Tres personas murieron en las violentas secuelas de la Moratoria, pero la muerte de Rubén Salazar se ha convertido casi en símbolo de aquél 29 de agosto. Salazar era director de noticias del canal 34 de KMEX, la principal estación de televisión en español del país, y estaba al frente de un equipo de TV que cubría la marcha.

Salazar también escribía una columna semanal sobre la vida mexicoamericana para el L.A. Times, donde había sido reportero y corresponsal extranjero. Mi profesor de sociología usó su columna más conocida – "¿Qué es un chicano?" – para discutir en clase.

Ese otoño comencé mi tercer año en Roosevelt. Aún formaba parte del equipo de fútbol, ​​pero la política ahora era personal. Pasé del individualismo y la asimilación a ser parte de una comunidad. Esta revelación como chicano era más fuerte que yo. Desde entonces, me comprometí a luchar por la justicia social y lo sigo haciendo.

Esos recuerdos nítidos y vívidos me han inspirado todos los días durante 50 años. Puedo ver el progreso que los latinos han logrado en todos los ámbitos de la vida, pero también veo la desigualdad en muchos criterios. Nuestras comunidades sufren la tasa de infección por Covid-19 más alta y la tasa de encarcelamiento más elevada. Y siguen detenidos 7,000 niños inmigrantes que fueron arrancados de los brazos de sus padres.

Una nueva generación está marchando contra muchas de las injusticias como nosotros protestamos hace medio siglo. Hoy será un momento decisivo para incontables jóvenes de 16 años. Los soñadores y activistas de hoy son los líderes políticos, cívicos y culturales del mañana. Son las semillas que plantamos y ayudamos a crecer. Esto es Chicano Power.

TRABAJANDO PARA TI

Councilmember Cedillo speaking on Police Reform at AD-Hoc Police Reform Committee 6-24-2020

Con mucho gusto les informo los siguientes puntos aprobados por el Concilio durante esta semana.

  • El martes, el Concilio aprobó por unanimidad (14-0) una moción que permite al DWP la viabilidad de un programa piloto en el Distrito 1 que ofrece incentivos y / o reembolsos a lavanderías que proporcionen servicio gratis o con descuento a sus usuarios que enfrentan dificultades económicas. Familias que viven en unidades múltiples sin servicios de lavandería serán algunos de los muchos beneficiados de este programa.

“Concilio de Los Ángeles estudiará formas de ahorro en lavanderías en el Distrito 1”

Telemundo 52, 25 de agosto, 2020

“Aprueban moción para descuentos en lavanderías. El Concilio votó unánimemente a favor de la propuesta del Concejal Cedillo, Por: Virginia Gaglianone 25 de Agosto 2020

  • También aprobamos dos mociones: una que permite solicitar al Departamento de Personal un informe sobre una lista de trabajos de la Ciudad y del Condado que requieren un requisito de estatus legal y otra para que el Personal cree un programa que proporcione un camino hacia la ciudadanía a través de los trabajos de la Ciudad.

El miércoles, el Consejo también votó por unanimidad a favor de:

  • Instruir a HCID para que informe sobre la viabilidad de utilizar unidades Airbnb no utilizadas para viviendas asequibles.
  • Instruir a la Autoridad de Monumentos Históricos de El Pueblo de Los Ángeles (El Pueblo) que perdone la renta a los inquilinos comerciales de julio a diciembre. Mis colegas en el comité de Presupuesto y yo queremos dar el ejemplo de que como propietaria, la Ciudad condona el alquiler a los inquilinos gravemente afectados por la pandemia. También solicitamos que la CAO informe sobre cualquier otro uso comercial en el que la Ciudad sea el propietario.
  • Instruir a la CAO, en consulta con HCID, EWDD y otros departamentos de la ciudad para iniciar planes con el Condado de Los Ángeles para crear un desarrollo de viviendas 100 asequibles, de usos múltiples en la propiedad del Condado ubicada en 725 North Spring Street, y preparar y presentar un informe con recomendaciones para el proyecto, con posibles estrategias de desarrollo, modelos de ejecución y otros asuntos pertinentes del proyecto.
  • Instruir al Fiscal Administrativo de la Ciudad (CAO) y al Departamento de Vivienda e Inversión Comunitaria de Los Ángeles, en consulta con el Departamento de Planificación Urbana, para que integre en el Marco de Gestión de Activos de la Ciudad un proceso proactivo y que asegure cualquier cambio necesario de zonificación para oportunidades de lugares para vivienda asequible para combatir la sobrepoblación, así como incrementar la realización segura del proyecto.
  • Apoyar cualquier legislación o acción administrativa que implemente clases de estudios étnicos o de justicia social en el sistema estatal de UC y/o cualquier otro sistema educativo sobre el cual el estado de California tenga algún control.
  • Apoyar AB 570 (Aguiar-Curry), sobre los objetivos del Fondo de Servicios Avanzados de California y establecería una Cuenta de Asignación Directa de la Agencia Estatal para ser utilizada para varios propósitos, como ampliación de la infraestructura de banda ancha en zonas de bajos ingresos, para facilitar la educación a distancia, la telesalud y la telemedicina.

Gracias a mis colegas y al equipo por hacer todo esto posible.

Dear Friend,

This week is the 50th Anniversary of the Chicano Moratorium to end the Vietnam War. I was there and share my memories in my op-ed below.

The City Council passed several of my of “COVID-19 Response & Relief” motions including instructing:

  • DWP to report on the feasibility of a CD 1 pilot program for laundromats to provide economically-challenged City residents discounted or free laundry washes;
  • Personnel Department to report on a listing of City and County jobs that require a legal status requirement and create a program providing a pathway to citizenship through City jobs;
  • HCID to report on the feasibility of utilizing unused Airbnb units for affordable housing;
  • El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument Authority (El Pueblo) to waive rent payments due from merchant tenants from July to December;
  • CAO, to initiate a dialogue and formulate plans with the County of Los Angeles to create a transit-oriented, mixed-use, 100 percent affordable housing development in Chinatown; and
  • City departments integrate into the City's Asset Management Framework a process to proactively initiate and secure any necessary zoning entitlement changes for Affordable Housing Opportunity Sites.

Be safe and let my staff and I know if we can be of any assistance to you and your family by contacting us at Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org or 213-434-4054.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

CEDILLO WEEKLY

Week of August 24 to August 29, 2020

 

The Summer of 1970 - By Councilmember Gilbert Cedillo

Gil football 1970

Gilbert Cedillo, Roosevelt High School Football - Photo Credit: Roosevelt High School Year Book

One Saturday morning 50 years ago, I finished my household chores early and slipped out of the house to meet some friends. We were going to the Chicano Moratorium Against the Vietnam War. I was 16 years old, and this would be my first protest march. As it turned out, those were my first steps in a long march toward a more just world.

I played quarterback on Roosevelt High’s Rough Riders, which at the time was my main goal in life. That day I marched with Mario Chacon and some other friends my parents called greñudos – longhairs. An estimated 30,000 marchers made the Moratorium the largest political protest in Los Angeles history.

The Moratorium was a turning point for legions of young community activists. Marchers included political leaders Esteban Torres and Gloria Molina, attorneys Antonia Hernandez and Samuel Paz, photographer Luis Garza, and educator Maria Elena Yepes.

My greñudo friend Mario and I were roommates later at UCLA. He became an academic leader and recognized muralist in San Diego. I fought on in the labor movement and political arena.

The Moratorium, however, ended in mayhem. Sheriff Peter Pitchess’ deputies declared the speakers and music in Laguna Park an unlawful assembly and attacked families with tear gas and 3-foot riot clubs. I remember the mood turning from pride and festivity to hysteria in an instant, and thousands of unarmed demonstrators trying to get out of harm’s way.

I was an athlete and it wasn’t hard for me to hop fences. I found shelter in a house nearby packed with frantic participants from the Crusade for Justice, the leading Chicano rights organization in Denver. When things settled down, I began working my way home. I was walking up Whittier Boulevard when the booming voice of my father, a Korean War veteran and former boxer, rang out: “Get in the car!” We argued all the way home. He grounded me.

Three people died in the Moratorium’s violent aftermath, but Ruben Salazar’s death has become almost synonymous with August 29. Salazar was news director for KMEX Channel 34, the country’s preeminent Spanish language TV station, and was leading a camera crew covering the march.

Salazar also wrote a weekly column on Mexican American life for the L.A. Times, where he had been a reporter and foreign correspondent. My sociology teacher used his best-known column – “What Is a Chicano?” – to spark class discussion.

That fall I began my junior year at Roosevelt. I still made the football team, but politics was now personal. I moved from individualism and assimilation to being part of a community. This new Chicano identity was bigger than me. It was a movement, and I made a commitment to fight for social justice that I have kept ever since.

Those sharp and vivid memories have inspired me every day for 50 years. I can see the progress Latinos have made in every walk of life, but I also see inequality by so many yardsticks. Our communities suffer the highest COVID infection rate and the highest incarceration rate. And 7,000 immigrant children who were torn from their parents’ arms are still in detention.

A new generation is marching against many of the injustices we protested. This will be a defining moment for countless 16-year-olds. Today’s dreamers and protesters are tomorrow’s political, civic, and cultural leaders. They are the seeds we planted and helped to blossom. This is Chicano Power.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Councilmember Cedillo speaking on Police Reform at AD-Hoc Police Reform Committee 6-24-2020

I am happy to report the following items passed in Council this week.

On Tuesday, Council voted on a unanimous vote (14-0) approving:

  • A motion instructing DWP to report on the feasibility of a CD 1 pilot program that provides incentives and/or rebates to laundromats that reduce water and power costs, to provide economically-challenged City residents discounted or free laundry washes.  Constituents who live in multi-unit homes without in-house laundry services would greatly benefit from this program. Motion for laundry discounts approved, Explica News Site, August 26, 2020
  • We also passed two items instructing the Personnel Department to report on a listing of City and County jobs that require a legal status requirement and another for Personnel to create a program that would provide a pathway to citizenship through City jobs. 

On Wednesday, Council also voted unanimously to:

  • Instruct HCID to report on the feasibility of utilizing unused Airbnb units for affordable housing. 
  • Instruct the El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument Authority (El Pueblo) to waive rent payments due from merchant tenants from July to December.  My colleagues in the Budget committee wanted to set an example that as a landlord, the City provides rent forgiveness to tenants severely impacted by the pandemic. They also added an instruction for the CAO to report on any other commercial uses in which the City is the landlord.
  • Instruct the CAO, in consultation with HCID, EWDD, and other City Departments to initiate a dialogue and formulate plans with the County of Los Angeles to create a transit-oriented, mixed-use, 100 percent affordable housing development at the County-owned site at 725 North Spring Street, and to prepare and present a report with recommendations for advancing the project, potential land development strategies, project delivery models and other pertinent matters. 
  • INSTRUCT the City Administrative Officer (CAO) and the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department, in consultation with the Department of City Planning, to integrate into the City's Asset Management Framework a process to proactively initiate and secure any necessary zoning entitlement changes for Affordable Housing Opportunity Sites to optimize housing density, increase certainty and enhance project delivery.
  • Support any legislation or administrative action which would implement an ethnic studies or social justice class requirement in the State UC system and/or any other college system over which the State of California has any control.
  • Support AB 570 (Aguiar-Curry), as amended, which would revise the goal of the California Advanced Services Fund and establish the State Agency Direct Allocation Account to be used for various purposes, including upgrades to broadband infrastructure in low-income census blocks to enable distance learning and telehealth and telemedicine.

Thank you to my colleagues and staff for making this all happen.

Every day throughout Los Angeles we see ordinary people volunteer and commit themselves to improve their community. For months, Team Cedillo has tried to coordinate a time and place to honor and thank Vera Padilla for her countless hours of service to the Lincoln Heights community for her dedication when she was on the Neighborhood Council, currently at the Lincoln Heights Farmers Market, always mentoring youth, and the list goes on. Rarely, if at all, does Vera turn down a request for her to help the community and people of Lincoln Heights. She grew up in Lincoln Heights and retired from LAUSD as a teacher at Lincoln High School. Thank you, Vera, and all our volunteers that contribute to, making their community better.

Dumping waste, materials, packaging, and equipment on L.A. streets, sidewalks, and alleys or in public bins is a crime and is subject to increased fines or criminal prosecution. To make it easier for witnesses of illegal dumping with evidence or first-hand information to report it to the City for investigation, please contact 311 or LA Bureau of Sanitation at 800-773-2489.

Dear Friend,

This week, I was successful in postponing the City Planning Commission hearing for a Lincoln Heights property in order to allow for more meaningful and robust community input.

It has also come to my attention that a private company is detaining migrant children at a hotel in my district as detailed in "A Private Security Company Is Detaining Migrant Children at Hotels”, The New York Times, 8/16/2020. Los Angeles will never be a haven for anything associated with the Trump Administration's war against immigrants.

I have introduced a motion to have the City Attorney prepare an ordinance to prohibit and suspend, any certificate of occupancy for any hotel that would house and detain migrant children and families under the direction of private security companies.  

Our COVID-19 positive cases went down a promising 17%.  However, deaths went up 21%. We must continue to wear masks, practice social distancing, wash our hands frequently, avoid crowds and large gatherings, and get a FREE COVID-19 test.

Be safe and let my staff and I know if we can be of any assistance to you and your family by contacting us at Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org or 213-434-4054.

 Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LADWP Urges Customers to Continue Conserving Energy

FlexAlert-Logo-Green-150px

LADWP is calling on customers to continue conserving energy to help the state gird and reduce the strain on neighborhood distribution systems. Extreme heat conditions, including nighttime temperatures that provide little relief to strained equipment.

Here are a few simple steps to save energy and beat the summer heat:

  • Adjust AC thermostats to 78 degrees, if health permits.
  • Limit the use of major appliances during peak hours of the day. Use washing machines, dishwashers, vacuum cleaners, and other heavy appliances in the early morning or late evening hours.
  • Turn off lights and other electrical equipment when not in use.
  • Unplug “energy vampires” like cell phone chargers, microwave ovens, and other appliances that use energy even when not in use.
  • Close blinds and drapes.
  • Use fans when possible to keep cool.
  • DO NOT charge electric vehicles.
  • Turn off pool pumps.

Amigos y amigas:

Cinco de mis mociones de los Comités de Presupuesto y Vivienda se aprobaron esta semana.

En el Comité de Presupuesto, pusimos el ejemplo a los propietarios de viviendas de renta al perdonar el alquiler de los comerciantes de El Pueblo de Olvera Street de julio a fin de año y proporcionamos recursos a LA Justice Fund, organización que a través de organizaciones sin fines de lucro proporciona servicios de inmigración a los angelinos.

En el Comité de Vivienda, solicitamos al Departamento de Vivienda + Inversión Comunitaria un informe sobre la posibilidad de usar unidades desocupadas de Airbnb como viviendas asequibles y pedimos al Administrador de la Ciudad que inicie los cambios necesarios en los derechos de zonificación para sitios potenciales para Vivienda Asequible como parte de la Gestión de Activos de la Ciudad; y en asociación con el Condado, crear viviendas 100% asequibles que pueden incluir usos múltiples en Chinatown.

Quiero acentuar que la Ciudad prohíbe que un propietario desaloje a sus inquilinos durante el período de emergencia local y durante 12 meses (3 meses para propiedades comerciales) después de que termine dicha emergencia por no pagar el alquiler debido a razones viculadas con el COVID-19.

Los medios de comunicación y redes sociales informan que el Concilio Judicial de California aprobó el fin de la moratoria sobre desalojo el 1 de septiembre de 2020. Pero eso no incluye a los inquilinos de la ciudad de Los Ángeles. Más detalles están abajo.

Me complace trabajar con el alcalde Garcetti para traer tres puestos de prueba gratis de COVID-19 en Cypress Park y Westlake la semana pasada. Atendimos a casi mil personas. Pronto haremos más.

Ten la seguridad de que mi equipo y yo estamos para  ayudarte a ti y a tu familia; si necesitas comunicarte con nosotros escribe a Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org o llámanos al 213-434-4054.

Sinceramente,

LEGISLANDO PARA TI

Concejal Cedillo presenta una resolución pidiendo al Congreso la investigación del asesinato de la soldado Vanessa Guillén.

Hace unas semanas envié una carta al Congreso, y esta semana durante nuestra sesión del Concilio, leí una resolución que presenté para que la Ciudad de Los Ángeles incluya en su Programa Legislativo Federal, el apoyo a la legislación y/o acción que resulten de una investigación del Congreso sobre el asesinato de Vanessa Guillén.

Concejal Cedillo presenta moción para impulsar la igualdad en la industria cinematográfica, incluidos mujeres, latinos, afroamericanos y asiáticos que están muy poco representados.

Film OIP

“Es imperativo luchar por nuestra participación justa y representación equitativa en las industrias en todos los ámbitos”, dijo Cedillo. El Concejal propuso que se solicite a FilmLA que informe al Concilio sobre cómo la ciudad y FilmLA pueden impulsar la equidad en la industria cinematográfica, para mas inclusión de latinos, afroamericanos, asiáticos y mujeres en la industria.

Además, propuso que se solicite a FilmLA la viabilidad de usar al Distrito 1, -constituido en su mayoría por un grupo demográfico de minorías-, como sede de un programa piloto educativo/incubador de productores, directores y escritores de películas para crear el entorno propicio para cultivar la presencia de todos los grupos. Lea la moción aquí.

Mociones aprobadas esta semana de los Comités de Presupuesto y Vivienda

Comité de presupuesto

  1. El Concejal Cedillo quiso que la ciudad diera un ejemplo a los propietarios de inmuebles de toda la ciudad durante esta pandemia. Siendo así, se perdonó el alquiler a los comerciantes de El Pueblo de Olvera Street de julio a fin de año. El turismo resultó afectado y prácticamente todas las actividades se suspendieron debido a la pandemia, impactando negativamente en la calle Olvera. Lea la moción aquí.
  2. Con el apoyo del Alcalde, la ciudad aprobó fondos para acompletar los recursos de este año de la organización LA Justice Fund (LAJF), que cuenta con el apoyo de la Ciudad, el Condado, la Fundación Weingart y la California Community Foundation. Los fondos se asignan a organizaciones sin fines de lucro que brindan servicios migratorios a habitantes de la ciudad de Los Ángeles. Lea la moción aquí.

Comité de Vivienda

  1. Reporte de vivienda para usar unidades desocupadas de Airbnb para viviendas asequibles. Lea la moción aquí.
  2. Iniciar los cambios necesarios en los derechos de zonificación para sitios potenciales para Vivienda Asequible como parte de la Gestión de Activos de la Ciudad. Lea la moción aquí.
  3. En coordinación con el Condado, creación de viviendas 100% asequibles que pueden incluir usos múltiples en Chinatown. Lea la moción aquí.

Combatiendo el calor

josh-rose-156917

¡El verano trae diversión, sol y mucho calor! A veces, el calor se vuelve peligroso. Sobre todo para niños, mascotas, personas que trabajan al aire libre y personas con delicadas condiciones de salud. Es vital resguardarse de altas temperaturas siguiendo estos sencillos consejos:

  • Mantente hidratado bebiendo agua fría.
  • Use ropa holgada de colores claros y en la interperie use un sombrero. Use protector solar.
  • Procure a sus vecinos vulnerables al calor, como aquellos sin aire acondicionado y mayores de edad.
  • NO deje niños o mascotas en su auto ¡Ni un minuto! Las temperaturas dentro en un auto se disparan rápidamente a niveles fatales.
  • Si trabaja o juega al aire libre, tome descansos frecuentes para hidratarse y refrésquese en la sombra.
  • ¡Vigile a sus mascotas! Si le es posible, manténgalas adentro. Si no, déles mucha agua y sombra para resguardarse.
  • Los síntomas de enfermedades por el calor incluyen mareos, fatiga, desmayos, dolores de cabeza, calambres y sed extrema. Si sufre estos síntomas, busque ayuda médica.

Haga clic aquí para encontrar un centro de enfriamiento cerca de usted y mas información para resguardarte del calor.

Orden actualizada de Autoridades de Salud del Condado de L.A., 12 de agosto de 2020

Las autoridades de salud del Condado de Los Angeles, han emitido una actualización sobre el reglamento y protocolos de salud (HOO por sus siglas en inglés), “Reapertura más segura en el trabajo y en la comunidad para el control de COVID-19 - Llevando al condado de Los Ángeles a la etapa 3 de la hoja de ruta de recuperación ante la pandemia de California”, fechada el 12 de agosto, 2020. Los cambios hechos son resaltados en el documento actualizado de HOO que incluye:

  • Precisar cuándo las escuelas primarias pueden solicitar una exención para impartir clases en persona en las escuelas para los grados TK-6.
  • La operaciones de guarderías especifican capacidad por día de grupos de 12 o menos niños cada día, en lugar de 10.
  • Adaptarse a las nuevas indicaciones de los institutos de educación superior.

¿Qué función tienen las mascarillas?

Usar Una Mascara

Antes de hablar sobre la importancia de usar mascarilla, debemos mencionar lo aprendido sobre el COVID-19 desde el comienzo de la pandemia.

Sabemos que COVID-19 se transmite principalmente de persona a persona a través de gotitas respiratorias (que se producen cuando una persona infectada tose, estornuda, habla, canta o alza la voz). Estas gotas diminutas pueden caer en ojos, boca o nariz de quienes se encuentran cerca y posiblemente pueden ser inhaladas hacia los pulmones.

También hemos aprendido que muchas personas infectadas con el COVID-19 son asintomáticas (que no presentan síntomas) y de hecho, con solo mirarlos, no podemos saber si están infectados o no.

Entonces, ¿qué hacen las mascarillas?

Evidencia significativa de estudios clínicos y de laboratorio muestra que las máscaras reducen las gotitas respiratorias microscópicas cuando se usan sobre la nariz y la boca. A esto se le llama control de origen.

Una mascarilla, como se ve en el gráfico anterior, limita la propagación de las gotitas respiratorias de cada persona que la usa ajustada sobre la boca Y la nariz. Una simple pieza de tela evita que muchas de sus gotas respiratorias lleguen a quienes lo rodean.

Como no hay forma de saber si nosotros (o los que nos rodean) estamos infectados con el COVID-19, la mejor estrategia es SIEMPRE usar una cubierta facial cuando esté cerca de personas, y pedir a quienes lo rodean que también usen una mascarilla.

Las cubiertas faciales pueden ser incómodas, pero realmente SI son necesarias. Todos esperamos el momento para no tener que usarlas, pero aún no llegamos a esa etapa.

RECUERDA:

1) NO deben usar mascarilla los niños menores de 2 años o cualquier persona que tenga problemas para respirar, inconsciente, incapacitado o no pueda quitarse la mascarilla sin ayuda;

2) NO se deben usar máscaras con válvulas de exhalación (o respiraderos) para ayudar a evitar que la persona que usa la máscara propague el COVID-19 a otras personas; y

3) Cumplir con protocolos y restricciones vigentes para que evitar la propagación nuevamente.

Alcalde Garcetti inaugura “L.A. Connected” para enlazar a los angelinos afectados por COVID-19 con fondos económicos

El alcalde Eric Garcetti inauguró L.A. Connected, un programa de ayuda a los angelinos más afectados por COVID-19 para acceder a un alivio financiero vital que incluye:

Seguro de desempleo

L.A. Connected brindará información gratuitas en línea sobre cómo acceder a los beneficios del Seguro de Desempleo (UI por sus siglas en inglés) y los trabajos disponibles, así como asistencia telefónica y en persona en uno de los Centros WorkSource de la Ciudad. Los angelinos pueden encontrar y llamar al centro más cercano visitando EWDD's website o llamando al 311. 

Pagos de impacto económico

La Ley CARES, aprobada por el Congreso en marzo, destina casi $300 mil millones en asistencia a personas de ingresos bajos y moderados. L.A. Connected apoyará a más de 100,000 angelinos que ganan menos de $12,200 al año y a decenas de miles que no presentaron impuestos a través de:

Apoyo en línea o en persona

Programe cita en línea o en persona para obtener asistencia técnica detallada y apoyo tecnológico en uno de los centros WorkSource y FamilySource de la ciudad.

Preparación gratis de impuestos

Cada año, a través de Free Tax Prep LA, 16 FamilySource Centers de la ciudad y otros sitios de Asistencia Voluntaria para el Impuesto sobre la Renta (VITA por sus siglas en inglés) conectan a expertos y voluntarios certificados por el IRS con individuos y hogares que ganan menos de $ 55,000 al año para ayudarlos a solicitar el Crédito Federal del Impuesto sobre la Renta del Trabajo (EITC) y CalEITC.

Mayor Garcetti unveils new public art encouraging mask use (1) 

El alcalde Eric Garcetti presentó una nueva obra de arte del Estudio Zavala, con sede en Los Ángeles, como parte del L.A. Mask Print Project, una iniciativa popular para recordar a los angelinos la importancia vital de usar mascarilla. Los carteles y diseños gratuitos están disponibles en inglés y español en el sitio web COVID-19 de la ciudad para que los angelinos los descarguen, impriman y publiquen en sus ventanas y/o escaparates.

Después de su lanzamiento el mes pasado con tres carteles producidos gratuitamente por Studio Number One, el L.A. Mask Print Project atrajo a más de 18,000 personas al sitio web COVID-19 de la ciudad. La iniciativa L.A. Mask Print Project continuará creciendo en las próximas semanas, con más colaboraciones artísticas. Los angelinos interesados en participar en esta campaña para aprovechar el arte para el bien común, pueden comunicarse con garcetti.reply@lacity.org  para obtener más información.

Alcalde Garcetti extiende permisos de estacionamiento especial hasta octubre 1

Parking Enforcement Officer Giving Ticket Image

El alcalde Garcetti extendió los permisos especiales del estacionamiento en toda la ciudad hasta el 1 de octubre, lo que facilita a los angelinos quedarse en casa cuando sea posible sin temor de recibir una multa.

Los permisos especiales del estacionamiento son los siguientes categorías:

  • Limpieza de calles residenciales
  • Registro vencido
  • Distritos grandes de estacionamiento durante la noche
  • Restricciones de estacionamiento en horas pico y zonas congestionadas
  • Ticket / remolque para estacionamiento nocturno

Las restricciones continúan para:

  • Estacionamiento con parquímetro
  • Límites de tiempo dentro de los distritos de estacionamiento preferencial para vehículos sin un permiso válido o vencido recientemente
  • Zonas de límite de tiempo publicadas en áreas residenciales y comerciales
  • Todos los letreros temporales de prohibición de estacionamiento
  • Bloquear áreas de acceso de emergencia
  • Zonas rojas y zonas amarillas.
  • Restricciones de estacionamiento en propiedades de la ciudad.

Además, no se aumentarán las multas de estacionamiento si no se paga una multa. A los angelinos también se les otorgarán períodos de gracia extendidos para servicios de entraga o pick up; el alcalde también concedió prórrogas en todos los pagos y ofreció permisos temporales que pueden imprimirse en casa para aquellos que han renovado su permiso pero que no han recibido la nueva etiqueta para antes de que expire su permiso actual.

Los vehículos que muestren permisos vencidos recientemente dentro de los distritos de estacionamiento preferencial tendrán un período de gracia de dos semanas después del vencimiento para renovarse. El 1 de octubre, el control de estacionamiento será normal, con excepción de la limpieza de calles, que será después de esa fecha.

Servicios legales con LA Represents

El Alcalde Eric Garcetti y el Abogado de la Ciudad Mike Feuer han hecho un llamado a los abogados para ayudar con servicios legales relacionados con la crisis de COVID-19 a través de LA Represents, un programa de ayuda legal a inquilinos, víctimas de violencia doméstica y personas de bajos ingresos con asuntos de empleo, deudas y bancarrota.

LA Represents también trabaja con Bet Tzedek Legal para ayudar a las pequeñas empresas sin las posibilidades de contar con servicios legales efectivos mientras enfrentan nuevas regulaciones en su lugar de trabajo, renegocian arrendamientos comerciales, solicitan programas de ayuda del gobierno y tratan de cumplir las órdenes de emergencia de salud y seguridad.

Dear Friend,

Five of my motions passed this week in the Budget and Housing Committees. In the Budget Committee, we set an example for landlords throughout the City during this pandemic by providing rent waivers to our Olvera Street El Pueblo Merchants from July to the end of the year and we provided matching funds to complete this year's version of the LA Justice Fund, which provides funds for immigration-related services to residents of the City of Los Angeles through non-profits. In the Housing Committee, we instructed the Housing + Community Investment Department to provide a report on the feasibility of using unused Airbnb units for affordable housing and we instructed the Chief Administrative Officer to initiate and secure necessary zoning entitlement changes for Affordable Housing Opportunity Sites as part of the City's Asset Management Framework; and in partnership with the County, creating 100% affordable housing that may include mixed-use in Chinatown.

I want to make it clear that the City’s ordinances prevent a landlord from evicting a tenant during the local emergency period and for 12 months (3 months for commercial properties) after the emergency ends for failure to pay rent during the emergency if that failure to pay rent is tied to COVID-19. It’s been in the media and social networks that the California Judicial Council voted to end its temporary emergency rules on eviction on September 1, 2020. But that does not apply to tenants in the City of Los Angeles. More details are below.

I am also pleased to work with Mayor Garcetti to bring three free Pop-Up Walk-up COVID-19 testing sites in Cypress Park and Westlake this past week. Almost one-thousand people were tested. We are working to bring you more.

Be safe and let my staff and I know if we can be of any assistance to you and your family by contacting us at Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org or 213-434-4054.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Councilmember Cedillo Introduces Resolution Calling for Congressional Investigation of Murder of Army Specialist Vanessa Guillen

Weeks ago Councilmember Cedillo sent a letter to Congress, and this week in Council session, he read into the record a resolution I am introducing for the City of Los Angeles to include in its Federal Legislative Program, support for legislation and/or action which would result in a congressional investigation into the murder of Specialist Vanessa Guillen.

Councilmember Cedillo Introduced a Motion to Push For Equity For All in the Film Industry, Including Latinos, African Americans, Asians, and Women Who are Vastly Underrepresented

Film OIP

It is imperative that we keep fighting for our fair share and equal representation in industries across the board. Councilmember Cedillo moved that FilmLA be requested to report to the Council on how the City and FiimLA can do more to push for equity for all in the film industry, including Latinos, African Americans, Asians, and women who are vastly underrepresented throughout the industry.

He further moved that FiimLA be requested to report to the Council on the feasibility of using Council District 1, that has a demographic of mostly minorities, to be home to a pilot program for a film producing, directing, and writing incubator so that we can train and create the environment to grow even more of our presence. Read the motion here.

Items That Passed the Budget and Housing Committees This Week

Budget Committee

  1. Councilmember Cedillo wanted the City to set an example for landlords throughout the City during this pandemic.  In this case, we are providing rent waivers to our Olvera Street El Pueblo Merchants from July to the end of the year.  Tourism has been hit hard and practically every activity that is discouraged due to the pandemic has adversely impacted Olvera Street.  Read the motion here.
  2. With the Mayor's support, the City was able to provide matching funds to complete this year's version of the LA Justice Fund(LAJF).  LAJF is supported by the City, County, Weingart Foundation, and the California Community Foundation.  Funds are allotted to non-profit organizations that provide immigration-related services to residents of the City of Los Angeles.  Read the motion here

Housing Committee

  1. Housing report on using unused Airbnb for Affordable Housing. Read the motion here
  2. Initiating and securing necessary zoning entitlement changes for Affordable Housing Opportunity Sites as a part of the City's Asset Management Framework. Read the motion here.

Beat The Heat

josh-rose-156917

Summer months bring fun, sun, and heat! Sometimes, the heat can become dangerous, especially for children, pets, people who work outside, and people with certain health conditions. Staying safe in high heat is important. Follow these simple tips to stay cool: 

  • Drink plenty of cool water! Stay hydrated. 
  • Wear loose, light-colored clothing that will keep you cool. Wear sunscreen and a hat for protection.
  • Check on neighbors who might be vulnerable to the heat, especially those without air conditioning. 
  • Never leave children or pets in a car - not even for one minute. Temperatures inside a car can quickly skyrocket to deadly levels. 
  • If you work or play outside, take frequent breaks to hydrate and cool off in the shade. 
  • Don't forget your pets! Keep pets indoors if possible. If kept outside, give them plenty of water and shade to rest in. 
  • Symptoms of heat-related illness include dizziness, fatigue, faintness, headaches, muscle cramps, and increased thirst. If you experience these symptoms, seek medical attention.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Revised Los Angeles County Health Officer Order, August 12, 2020

The Los Angeles County Health Officer has issued a revised Los Angeles County Health Officer Order (HOO), “Reopening Safer at Work and in The Community for Control of COVID-19 – Moving The County of Los Angeles Into Stage 3 of California Pandemic Resilience Roadmap,” dated August 12, 2020. Changes from the previous HOO are highlighted in the revised HOO document that includes:

  • Clarify when elementary schools may seek a waiver to conduct in-person instruction in elementary schools for grades TK-6.
  • Update operations of childcare facilities to specify childcare must be carried out in stable groups of 12 or fewer in the same group each day, instead of 10.
  • Align with new guidance for Institutes of Higher Education.

What Do Face Coverings Do?

What Do Face Coverings Do

Before we talk about the power of a face covering, we should start by mentioning what we've learned about COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic. We know that COVID-19 mainly spreads from person to person through respiratory droplets (produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks, sings, or raises their voice). These droplets can land in the eyes, mouths, or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

We've also learned that MANY people who are infected with COVID-19 are asymptomatic (have no symptoms). We can’t tell, by just looking at them, whether they’re infected or not.

So, What Do Face Coverings Do? 

Significant emerging evidence from clinical and laboratory studies show masks reduce the spray of microscopic respiratory droplets when worn over the nose and mouth. This is called source control.

A face covering, as seen in the above graphic, limits the spread of respiratory droplets from every person wearing a face covering that fits snugly over their mouth AND nose. The simple piece of fabric stops many of your respiratory droplets from reaching those around you.

Because we have no way of knowing if we (or those around us) are infected with COVID-19, the best strategy is to ALWAYS wear a face covering when around people that aren't part of your household and to ask that those around you wear a face covering as well.

Face coverings can feel uncomfortable, but they really do protect us all. And while we look forward to a time when we don't have to wear them - we're not there yet.

Don't forget: 1) Masks should NOT be worn by children under the age of 2 or anyone who has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance; 2) Masks with exhalation valves (or vents) should NOT be worn to help prevent the person wearing the mask from spreading COVID-19 to others, and 3) Adhere to the modifications and restrictions that are working to get us back to slowing the spread again.

City’s COVID-19 Tenant Protection Ordinance Does Not Allow Residential Evictions For 12 Months After Local Emergency

The California Judicial Council voted to end its temporary emergency rules on eviction on September 1, 2020. The Judicial Council's action does NOT impact the City’s COVID-19 tenant protection ordinances.  The City's ordinances remain in place and afford protections to the City's tenants during the pandemic.

The Judicial Council oversees California’s court system and back in April they enacted emergency rules to suspend court action on all eviction cases, except to protect public health and safety.  Although the Judicial Council emergency rules do not prevent a landlord from filing in court an unlawful detainer complaint, the rules prevent the issuance of a summons or default judgment.

Although the Judicial Council emergency rules will end in a couple of weeks, the City's ordinance will continue to protect City tenants.

As a reminder, the City’s ordinances prevent a landlord from evicting a tenant during the local emergency period and for 12 months (3 months for commercial properties) after the emergency ends for failure to pay rent during the emergency if that failure to pay rent is tied to COVID-19.  The City’s ordinances also prevent a landlord from evicting a residential tenant during the emergency when the tenant is not at fault, or for having unauthorized tenants and pets, or creating a nuisance because of COVID-19.  The landlord also cannot evict a residential tenant under the Ellis Act until 60 days following the local emergency.  Also, if the tenant rents an RSO property, the landlord cannot raise the rent until 12 months after the emergency ends.

Therefore, even after the Judicial Council emergency rules end on September 1, a landlord may NOT file an unlawful detainer action seeking to evict a tenant for any reason that runs counter to the City's ordinance.  If a landlord files such an action, the tenant will have both a private right of action against the landlord and an affirmative defense in the unlawful detainer action.

 

MAYOR GARCETTI KICKS OFF “L.A. CONNECTED” that  Connects Angelenos Impacted by COVID-19 to Economic Relief

Mayor Eric Garcetti launched L.A. Connected, an effort to help Angelenos hardest-hit by COVID-19 access vital financial relief including:

Unemployment Insurance (UI)

L.A. Connected will provide free online sessions to learn more about how to access UI benefits and jobs available, as well as phone and in-person support at one of the City’s WorkSource Centers. Angelenos can find and call the center closest to them by visiting EWDD's website or calling 311. 

Economic Impact Payments

The CARES Act, passed by Congress in March, directs nearly $300 billion in assistance to low- and moderate-income individuals. L.A. Connected will support the more than 100,000 Angelenos who make less than $12,200 a year and the tens of thousands who did not file taxes through:

Online or in-person support to complete the Economic Impact Payment form submission 

Scheduled online or in-person appointments to provide more detailed technical assistance and technology support at one of the City’s WorkSource and FamilySource Centers.

Free Tax Prep L.A.

Mayor Garcetti Unveils New Public Art Encouraging Mask Use

Mayor Garcetti unveils new public art encouraging mask use (1) 

Mayor Eric Garcetti unveiled new artwork by L.A.-based Estudio Zavala as part of the L.A. Mask Print Project, a grassroots initiative to remind Angelenos to wear a mask through publicly available art. The free posters and designs are available in English and Spanish on the City’s COVID-19 website for Angelenos to download, print, and post in their storefronts and windows.

 

After launching last month with three commissioned posters produced pro-bono by Studio Number One, the L.A. Mask Print Project has drawn more than 18,000 people to the City’s COVID-19 website. The L.A. Mask Print Project initiative will continue to grow in the weeks ahead, with more artist collaborations becoming available for download. Angelenos interested in participating in this campaign to use public art for the public good can reach out to garcetti.reply@lacity.org for more information. 

Mayor Garcetti Extends Relaxed Parking Enforcement Until October 1

Parking Enforcement Officer Giving Ticket Image

Mayor Garcetti today extended relaxed parking enforcement across the City of Los Angeles until October 1, making it easier for Angelenos to stay home whenever possible without being concerned about a ticket. 

Relaxed enforcement is extended for the following categories:

  • Residential street sweeping
  • Expired registration
  • Overnight/Oversize parking districts
  • Peak/rush hour and gridlock zone parking restrictions
  • Ticket/tow for oversized/overnight parking

Enforcement continues for:

  • Metered parking
  • Time limits within preferential parking districts for vehicles without a valid or recently-expired permit
  • Posted time limit zones in residential and commercial areas
  • All posted Temporary No-Parking signs
  • Blocking emergency access areas
  • Colored curb zones
  • Parking restrictions for City-owned lots

In addition to these steps, Angelenos will not face parking fine increases when failing to pay a ticket. Residents will also be given extended grace periods for residential and commercial drop off or pick up; granted extensions on all deadlines for payments; and offered temporary permits that can be printed at home for those who have renewed their permit but will not receive the new hangtag before their current permit expires. 

Vehicles displaying recently expired permits within preferential parking districts will have a two-week grace period following the expiration to renew. On October 1, parking enforcement will begin again, with the exception of street sweeping enforcement, which will resume at a later date. 

LA Represents

Mayor Eric Garcetti and City Attorney Mike Feuer have assembled the program “LA Represents” with lawyers to assist you in legal services related to COVID-19. This also includes assistance for vulnerable tenants, domestic violence victims, and low-income individuals with employment, consumer debt, and bankruptcy matters. Additionally, LA Represents has partnered with Bet Tzedek Legal. The goal is to aid small businesses least likely to have access to effective legal services as they confront new workplace regulations, renegotiate commercial leases, apply for government relief programs, and navigate compliance with emergency health and safety orders.

Dear Friend,

I continue to work hard to bring the resources to my constituents in the First Council District to respond to the health crisis. This includes testing, which is crucial to know where the pandemic is spreading so we can focus our resources. This week we were successful in bringing more free pop-up walk-up testing sites in CD 1. We had two at William Mead Homes and three this upcoming week this Saturday, August 8th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Cypress Park Recreation Center, 2630 Pepper Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90065, and on Monday, August 10th and Thursday, August 14th, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days at the Food4Less, 1700 W. 6th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017 in Westlake.

I strongly urge you to complete the census as it provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data. I don’t want you to lose any of these resources that are crucial to the quality of life in the First District.

I invite you to join me and Mayor Garcetti at a door-to-door canvass to get residents to complete the census. The canvass is at 1 p.m. this Saturday, August 8th at the Cypress Park Recreation Center 2630 Pepper Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90065. We will be handing out census flyers and face coverings. Please RSVP here.

Be safe and let my staff and I know if we can be of any assistance to you and your family by contacting us at Gilbert.Cedillo@lacity.org or 213-434-4054.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Friends,

The Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority (LAHSA) has once again
shown that there is a homelessness crisis in this country and in the City of Los Angeles. According to the 2020 Point-In-Time Homeless Count, there are 41,108 (+13.6% in 2019) homeless individuals in the City of Los Angeles.

I will continue to contribute and exceed my fair share to help solve this housing and homeless crises, but until we address the structural and systemic drivers of increasing housing supply and access and economic injustice from all levels of government and people in leadership positions, we will continue to see our black and brown communities overrepresented in homelessness and economic hardship cited as the number one cause of homelessness. Housing people is good, but preventing homelessness is our calling.

Tackling our City's homeless crisis remains a priority. Understanding it takes years to build housing and the thousands of apartment units needed to house every person experiencing homelessness, I knew that it was critical to provide interim shelter and hygiene services in my district to unhoused Angelenos. 

I exceeded the City Council's pledge to build 222 units of permanent supportive housing and we have built 902 units—680 over the goal, in addition to the 810 existing permanent supportive housing units, being second to the top leading 13 other districts in this effort.

Furthermore, in the early Spring of 2019, I opened A Bridge Home offering 41 beds to single women and women with children in a uniquely designed and decorated home environment, unlike traditional mass shelters that have become a model for the City. In addition, we opened two Safe Parking Programs, one in Glassell Park and one in Westlake, each with 20 spaces that offer a safe place for people living in their vehicles to sleep and get connected to services.  

I have been at the forefront of addressing public health concerns, and the personal welfare of unsheltered residents, providing resources that are unique to my Council District. In 2018, Council District 1 was the first office to partner with The Shower of Hope to launch mobile showers across the district 2 days a week, then in 2019 funded the expansion to five days a week.  Furthermore, in 2019, my office was the first to fund and develop a partnership with The LA Laundry Truck to provide mobile laundry in our district 2 days a week. Most recently, in response to COVID-19, I have funded the expansion of the mobile showers from 5 to 7 days a week and the mobile laundry from 2 to 5 days a week. Today, the mobile showers have 200 guests weekly and the mobile laundry performs 100 loads weekly. 

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Also on Tuesday, alongside Councilmembers Herb Wesson, Jr. and Marqueece Harris-Dawson, the City is now tasked with further identifying available City-owned property within Council Districts 1, 8, and 10 that can be donated to community land trusts in furtherance of community needs like affordable housing or green space.

Councilmember Cedillo’s Vision is Realized for New LA City Department to Address Racial Inequities in Housing, Education, Employment and Commerce

Capril Maddox

To help fight discrimination in Los Angeles against people of color and other disenfranchised communities, Mayor Garcetti and the city council created a new Department for Civil and Human Rights Issues.

Capri Maddox, the first executive director for the L.A. City Civil and Human Rights Department, joined ABC7 live via Skype to discuss the role of this new department. She stated, "The mayor and city council, particularly Councilmember Gil Cedillo, envisioned this department over a year ago. However, they recently accelerated the start date to address discrimination and systemic racism against people of color and other disenfranchised communities," Maddox said. "Diversity is our strength, but compared to Caucasians, our majority population faces inequities of housing, education, employment, and commerce. And those are the four areas where this new department seeks to address."

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Friends,

With flash-bang grenades and tear gas for an introduction, Donald Trump announced yesterday that he is now the “Law and Order President.” Nothing during nearly 41 months of the Trump Administration, however, has been legal or orderly.

Police kill more than 1,000 Americans every year, with higher tolls in Black and Latino communities. George Floyd’s murder at the hands of four Minneapolis officers last week touched a national nerve. Floyd’s last words on a now-viral video – “I can’t breathe” – have become a rallying cry.

Rallies across the country reflect legitimate anger and pain at Floyd’s death, amplified in L.A. and other cities by horrific local police abuses. Looting is not a legitimate response. It distracts and provokes instead of educating and uniting. Every torched building means dozens of lost jobs, just as many employees were planning to return to work.

African Americans’ fight against racism and repression has inspired generations of activists around the world. Angelenos have rallied against police abuse for decades, from Sheriff’s deputies killing newsman Ruben Salazar in 1970 and LAPD officers killing Eulia Love in 1979, to current ICE attacks on immigrants and asylum seekers.

I came of age during the fight for social justice in the 1960s and ‘70s, as did many of my fellow councilmembers and many of you. We kept up the fight during the ‘80s and ‘90s and into the new century. It’s still our fight. We will not flinch when injustice drags down our communities. We will always stand up for what’s right.

History also teaches us to keep our eyes on the prize. We are in an unprecedented fight against the coronavirus. Our lives changed when the pandemic exploded in March. The Council has since focused on this medical and economic crisis.

During the past three months, Covid-19 has claimed hundreds of my District 1 constituents and threatens tens of thousands of others. Unemployment runs rampant from MacArthur Park to Highland Park.

We cannot turn away from the medical fight against the virus or from the political fight to keep working families’ heads above water while we restart the economy.

I learned from years in the labor movement that building solidarity is hard work. It’s easy to get friends to act together; it takes years to unite people from different backgrounds.

L.A. is one of the most diverse cities in the world, and George Floyd’s murder is uniting us all – old and young, men and women, LGBTQ, and a broad spectrum of religions and communities. Our police chief and police union have denounced the four Minneapolis officers’ actions.

This is a national movement, but there can be no decisive victory against police abuse or the coronavirus, much less for social and economic justice unless we dump Trump in the most important presidential election of our lives this fall.

Trump hopes that acting like a strongman will mask three years of disastrous policies. He wants to whip up racial conflict to distract us from the devastating toll of his failed policies on our families and country. We cannot allow that to happen this November 3. We must keep our eyes on the prize!

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember, First District

P.S. View my 7-minute commentary at Monday's City Council meeting on the fight for justice for George Floyd, and against organized looters trying to exploit this week’s mass public outpouring.

  • They are looters and they are trying to exploit this moment.

Mayor Garcetti Reforms

Mayor Garcetti Photo

Mayor Garcetti is working to identify $250 million for further investments in community programs, including cuts to LAPD’s budget:

  • Put a moratorium on putting people in the CalGang database and expand the juvenile diversion program to ensure that as few young Angelenos as possible see the criminal justice system.
  • Require officers to intervene when they see the inappropriate use of force and always report misconduct and have more regular departmental training in implicit bias.
  • Expand Community Safety Partnership sites and programs throughout the city to build stronger relationships between officers and the Angelenos they serve.
  • All LAPD officers will complete de-escalation and crowd control training by the end of the year to better support peaceful protests.
  • Expand LAPD’s mental health intervention training program to train a minimum of 900 additional officers this year. 
  • The Police Commission will review our early warning system to better identify problematic behavior and intervene earlier with officers who have exhibited a pattern of high-risk behavior.
  • We will convene our first meeting of the Civil and Human Rights Commission late next week, and set up the Civil and Human Rights Department and its Office of Racial Equity months ahead of schedule.

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Friends,

During times of tragedy and uncertainty, we, as a community and as a nation, have never failed to come together and work towards one common goal.  The crisis we face today has no equal in what we have faced before.  Yet again, we have shown the power of community and made it our mission to preserve life.  Because life is irreplaceable, whether they be a stranger or a loved one.  But to lose a loved one's life either to sickness or calamity or for any reason is an unbearable pain that remains for life.  I would like to take this opportunity to send my condolences to the family of George Floyd, a good man whose life was needlessly cut short.  My prayers are with his family. 

In our continued efforts to protect our most vulnerable, Council has unanimously passed my motions to reallocate $250,000 in City funding to provide further economic assistance to the residents of the First District impacted by COVID-19.  It will be used to pay for bills, food, and other necessities.

I am also pleased to be appointed by our great Council President, Nury Martinez, to the newly-formed Ad Hoc Committee on COVID-19 Recovery and Neighborhood Investment.  Part of the mission of the Committee is to ensure that hundreds of millions of dollars in federal emergency assistance are allocated to Los Angeles and to prepare the City in addressing critical issues and concerns when the Emergency Orders are lifted, and we move forward towards recovery.   

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember, First District

Economic And Workforce Development Department Will Provide $11 Million In No-Fee Microloans of $5,000 To $20,000

Mayor Eric Garcetti announced an $11 million economic relief package for small businesses impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The Economic and Workforce Development Department will provide $11 million in no-fee microloans of $5,000 to $20,000 — which may be used to cover working capital. Since cash flow is critical at this unprecedented time, the program will offer relaxed underwriting with no credit score minimum, a generous allowance to meet debt service and a 100% Loan to Value ratio. The interest rate can either be 0% for a term of six months to one year, or 3% to 5% for a term of up to five years. The microloan program is being paired with a Small Business Resilience Toolkit, which is being distributed as a digital guidebook and includes vital information covering Federal, State, County, and City emergency policies and programs impacting small. It also offers strategies for adjusting to the effects that COVID-19 is having on businesses including ways to keep employees safe, maintain operations at maximum possible capacity, and prepare business continuity plans. To apply for a microloan or view the toolkit, please visit lamayor.org/loan.

Amigos y amigas,

Esta semana felicito a estudiantes de secundaria y preparatoria por su graduación. Admiro su arduo trabajo y agradezco el apoyo a sus padres, maestros y administradores, ya que nuestros jóvenes son nuestro futuro.

A medida que seguimos las pautas para enfrentar la crisis de salud del COVID-19, lentamente comenzamos a reactivar la economía. Esta semana, el alcalde anunció la apertura de los negocios fijos y móviles de servicios para mascotas; los clientes podrán dejar y recoger a sus mascotas fuera de la tienda. También abrirán todos los lavados de autos; no solo lavados automáticos y de autoservicio. Por supuesto, todos los negocios abiertos deben mantener el protocolo de salud del Condado.

Estos negocios se han abierto porque como comunidad, mantenemos las pautas de más seguros en casa, el distanciamiento social, usamos mascarillas, nos lavamos las manos y desinfectamos superficies siempre que es necesario. Si seguimos así, podremos pasar a la Fase 3.

¡Juntos lo haremos!

Sinceramente,

Concejal Gil Cedillo, Distrito 1

Debido a las restricciones durante la pandemia del Covid-19, los gimnasios están cerrados y a muchos padres como Raúl y sus hijos, les resulta imposible tener una ducha aun en una ciudad tan importante como Los Ángeles.

Más allá de una sensación de limpieza, las duchas durante Covid-19 son vitales para que las personas se mantengan a salvo. El equipo ejecutivo de The Shower of Hope estamos muy agradecidos con voluntarios, donantes y socios por su apoyo en las recientes 6 semanas. Agradecemos al Concejal Gilbert Cedillo, quien fue el primer funcionario electo que nos otorgó fondos del gobierno y ahora nos apoya para operar los 7 días de la semana en Los Ángeles en su Distrito 1, incluyendo aquí mismo en Lincoln Heights.

Covid-19 demostró que hay una línea muy delgada entre estar bajo techo y estar sin hogar. Es hora de que comencemos a observar a una ciudad sin personas sin hogar.

¡Hagámoslo posible!

Friends,

This week I salute middle and high school students on their achievement of graduating. I commend their hard work and also thank their parents, teachers, and administrator as they are our future.

As we all continue the guidelines to manage the COVID-19 health crisis, we are slowly beginning to open the economy.  This week the Mayor announced the opening of all pet grooming and pet training retail businesses and mobile services. Customers will be able to drop off and pick up their pets outside the store and all car washes; not just automated and self-service washes; are now allowed to open. Of course, all open businesses must adopt the County’s retail establishment protocol.

We were able to open these businesses because as a community, we continue to stay safer at home, maintain social distancing, wear a cloth face covering, wash our hands, and sanitize surfaces. We will be able to move on to stage three if we continue with these measures.

Together we can do this!

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember, First District

Cedillo Commencement Video 5-21-2020

Councilmember Cedillo congratulates students on their achievement of graduating from middle and high school. He thanks teachers, administrators, and parents for helping graduates accomplish this milestone. He encourages graduates to continue their education and becoming our next teachers, firefighters, police officers, doctors, nurses, epidemiologists, and scientists. He also urges them to give back to make our communities better. See his address to graduates here.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

This week, in response to the continued crisis created by the novel coronavirus, Councilmember Cedillo introduced two motions to reallocate an additional $250,000 in funding for community resources and support efforts in District 1. Over $130,000 of the $250,000 will be used to provide direct economic action in support of residents and businesses in the First District, helping our neighbors pay rent and bills, and continuing to support workers temporarily furloughed during the public health crisis.

CM PHOTO MASK 5-18-2020

A mask is a symbol of respect. We wear masks and facial coverings during this pandemic to not only protect ourselves but more importantly to protect others. Please remember that it is now mandated for all Angelenos (except for small children and those with certain disabilities) to use a mask or facial covering when going outdoors. See the video of Team Cedillo Protecting everyone from COVID-19.

Mayor Garcetti CD1 presser crop Caveman Vintage Music 5-20-2020

We were so thrilled to see our Mayor Eric Garcetti in Council District One outlining our steps on how we are safely reopening Los Angeles. He live-streamed from Caveman Vintage Music in Lincoln Heights. Thank you for your leadership Mayor Eric Garcetti and for continuing to share the great information on our resources the City has been providing during this unprecedented time. The Mayor promoted shopping locally, the City's microloan program, and LADOT's curbside pick-up locations for small businesses. 

In light of the sweeping impact the COVID-19 pandemic is having on our small business community, the City of Los Angeles has responded swiftly and decisively to support our local, community businesses. The newly established Small Business Emergency Microloan Program now provides financing needed to strengthen small business enterprises in this time of acute need that has been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The State of CA is rolling out the California Disaster Relief Assistance for Immigrants (DRAI) program on Monday, May 18th.

DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND, THE PHONE LINES ARE VERY BUSY, BUT KEEP TRYING.

California acted in April 2020 to make state emergency funds available to a limited number of Californians excluded from the federal disaster assistance on account of their immigration status.

  • DRAI provides $500 in direct assistance per person, a maximum of $1000 per household.
  • Eligible individuals must provide information that they 1) are undocumented and over 18y/o; 2) are not eligible for federal COVID-19 assistance; 3) have experienced a hardship.
  • People in LA County may apply starting May 18, 2020, through these 3 organizations only:
  • Nonprofit organizations will not be assisting individuals prior to May 18. Individuals should not contact them ahead of time. Application assistance will not be provided in person.
  • 40,000 individuals in LA County will receive assistance.

More information available here.

LADOT Extends Relaxed Parking as Part of City's Efforts to Curb COVID-19

covid-update-01_6 ladot

LADOT Parking Enforcement announced that relaxed parking regulations will remain in effect until Monday, June 1. While certain parking regulations are relaxed, others remain enforced to ensure that emergency services and other city functions continue to operate properly. Please see the list below for full details regarding city parking enforcement.

LADOT has relaxed enforcement for the following categories:

  • Residential street sweeping
  • Expired registration on a vehicle
  • Peak/rush hour and gridlock zone parking restrictions
  • No ticket/tow for abandoned vehicles and overnight parking
  • Vehicles displaying recently expired permits within preferential parking districts will have a two-week grace period following the expiration to renew

In addition:

  • No parking fine increases until after June 1
  • Extended grace period for people dropping off or picking up
  • Immediate extensions on all deadlines for payments until June 1
  • LADOT will supply a temporary, print-at-home permit to residents within a preferential parking district who have renewed their permit but will not receive the new hangtag before their current permit expires

Enforcement continues for:

  • Metered parking
  • Time limits within preferential parking districts for vehicles without a valid or recently-expired permit
  • Posted time limit zones in residential and commercial areas
  • All posted Temporary No-Parking signs
  • No blocking emergency access (alleyways, fire hydrants, etc.)
  • Colored curb zones
  • Parking restrictions for city-owned lots

LADOT continues to adjust operations to help residents and businesses comply with physical distancing requirements and limit the spread of COVID-19. These adjustments include relaxed parking restrictions, deferred payment deadlines for citations, online hearing and permitting procedures, elimination of pedestrian push-button functionality at intersections with heavy pedestrian activity, food and retail pick-up parking zones, switching traffic signals to "night mode" to reduce speeding, and service changes on transit lines. 

Here is more information about LADOT's COVID-19 response.

A Message from Mel Tillekeratne, Shower of Hope

Shower of Hope Dads Like Raoul 5-21-2020

With all the gyms closing due to Covid-19 dads like Raoul find it impossible to shower and keep his kids clean even in such a wealthy city like Los Angeles.

Forget staying clean, with Covid-19 spreading showers are vital for people to simply stay alive. We at The Shower of Hope are grateful to our volunteers, donors, and partners for their support in helping us expand so much in the last 6 weeks. We are grateful to Councilmember Gilbert Cedillo who was the first elected official to give us government funding and is now supporting us to operate 7 days a week in LA in his district including right here in Lincoln Heights.

If Covid-19 proved anything it is that it is a very thin line between being housed and homeless. It's time we start looking at an LA without homelessness.

It's only impossible until it's done!

Mayor Garcetti Relaxes DMV Restrictions Per Request from Councilmember Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo reached out to Mayor Garcetti on relaxing DMV restrictions that are important during normal times, but could hinder rather assist.

Thank you, Mayor for relaxing Enforcement of Vehicle Registration and Driver’s License Violations. Some residents of the City of Los Angeles may not be able to get to a DMV office to renew a driver’s license, identification card or vehicle registration. If such visits are not possible due to the City’s March 19, 2020 Safe at Home Order, then residents should not be penalized for failure to comply with these provisions.

The Mayor directed LADOT to ensure that its parking officers refrain from ticketing or towing any vehicles for expired registration during this emergency period. Vehicle owners shall remain subject to all other parking enforcement restrictions, consistent with state and local laws and applicable emergency orders.

The Mayor also directed the Chief of Police to issue guidance to police officers to refrain, during this emergency period, from issuing citations for driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations that have expired in the last six months. Drivers within the City of Los Angeles will nonetheless be expected to obey all other laws; nothing in this memorandum should be construed to suggest that the Police Department will not be enforcing all moving violations, consistent with state and local laws and any applicable emergency orders.

Amigos y Amigas,

Como lo he dicho antes, los inquilinos son nuestros residentes más vulnerables. Tomando en cuenta que un 64% de los habitantes de Los Ángeles rentan sus viviendas, cada miembro del Concilio busca todas las medidas posibles para mitigar el pesar y las dificultades causadas por esta pandemia. Medidas como un plan de pago de un año para renta atrasada/acumulada y el congelamiento de aumento renta de un año de acuerdo a RSO, son las acciones más progresivas que una ciudad ha adoptado en el estado, y quizá en todo el país. La única medida que quedó sin aprobación, pero para bien, fue el respetar indicaciones de nuestra Constitución y garantizar que cada vez que el gobierno toma una propiedad, cada individuo afectado por ello, tendrá derecho a una compensación justa.

Tomando en cuenta esta realidad, concentramos esfuerzos para ayudar a nuestros más vulnerables con medios y recursos disponibles y más allá, manteniendo a las familias seguras y protegidas. Junto con las mociones aprobadas esta semana por mis colegas y yo en los programas de alivio de rentas, hay un nuevo proyecto de ley presentado en el Congreso que es la "Ley de Asistencia de Alquiler de Emergencia y Estabilización del Mercado de Alquiler 2020". Junto con el Presidente del Concilio, presentamos una moción que respalda y apoya firmemente esta legislación enarbolada por nuestro líder en la Cámara de Representantes.

Este proyecto de ley establecería un programa de Asistencia de Alquiler de Emergencia, que proporcionaría $ 100 mil millones para ayudar a familias e individuos a pagar el alquiler de su vivienda y servicios públicos para permanecer seguros bajo un techo; también ayudaría a los dueños de propiedades de alquiler -de todos los tamaños- a cubrir sus costos, incluidos los de mantenimiento necesarios para garantizar la salud y seguridad de los residentes; este proyecto de ley, ayudaría a su vez, a la recuperación económica mediante la estabilización de los inquilinos en sus hogares y un mercado más amplio de viviendas de alquiler durante y después de la emergencia del COVID-19.

Sinceramente,

El Alcalde Eric Garcetti modificó la orden de emergencia de Más Seguro en Casa: TODOS DEBEMOS USAR MASCARILLA SIEMPRE QUE SALGAMOS A LUGARES PÚBLICOS EN LOS ÁNGELES

SOCIAL - Face Coverings (ESP)

Mas Seguro L.A.

El miércoles pasado, el alcalde Eric Garcetti emitió una orden que requiere a los angelinos que usen mascarillas cuando salgan de casa. La orden ayudará en la lucha contra COVID-19, mientras que las restricciones se reducen gradualmente para permitir que más personas regresen a su trabajo y/o hagan actividades al aire libre.

El alcalde también modificó la orden de emergencia "Más seguro casa" de la Ciudad de Los Ángeles para permitir que todos los negocios minoristas, -excepto aquellos en centros comerciales cerrados-, reanuden operaciones pero limitados a entregar sus productos en la acera o en la puerta; el alcalde también ordenó y para abrir playas y espacios recreativos públicos para ejercicio al aire libre con ciertas restricciones.

Las nuevas pautas sobre uso de mascarillas omite a los niños menores de 2 años y a las personas con ciertas discapacidades y se basan en la acción previa del alcalde Garcetti que exige que los trabajadores y clientes comerciales no médicos esenciales usen mascarillas.

"Si bien la orden de la Ciudad de Más Seguro en Casa seguirá vigente después del 15 de mayo, se ajustará gradualmente para permitir más actividades de manera segura, más negocios para operar y más angelinos para volver a trabajar", dijo el alcalde Garcetti. "No vamos más allá del COVID-19, estamos aprendiendo a vivir con él, y seguiremos dando pasos seguros hacia una nueva realidad en los próximos días y semanas". Encuentre aquí los requisitos de reapertura para establecimientos minoristas: Reopening Protocols for Retail Establishments. Y aquí encontrará la orden de Más Seguro en Casa que comienza su transición a la Fase 2 del Condado emitida el 13 de mayo de 2020.

La orden ayudará a la lucha contra el COVID-19, al tiempo que las restricciones se reducen gradualmente para permitir que más personas regresen a su trabajo y/o a las actividades al aire libre. La orden omite a los niños pequeños para evitar riesgos de asfixia y a las personas con ciertas discapacidades.

Las mascarillas frenan la propagación del virus, y usarlas en público representa una capa de protección. Cubrirse la cara no sustituye a otras medidas necesarias para combatir  al COVID-19; lo más importante es quedarse en casa siempre que sea posible, lavarse las manos con frecuencia y mantener la distancia física de 6 pies en todos los entornos. Encuentre aquí más detalles sobre este requisito.

Recientes actualizaciones del alcalde Garcetti

 VENTAS MINORISTAS: Todas las tiendas minoristas, desde productos electrónicos hasta productos de belleza, pueden abrir en la acera y para entregar en la puerta.

 FÁBRICAS: Pueden abrir las que surten a vendedores minoristas; las condiciones son operar con una capacidad reducida de personal y cumplir con los protocolos de higiene y distanciamiento físico.

 PLAYAS: Están abiertas solo para recreación ACTIVA, como nadar, surfear, correr y caminar. Los estacionamientos, muelles, baños y concesiones comerciales permanecen cerrados. No se permiten reuniones, tomar el sol, sentarse, ni practicar deportes en grupo.

 OTRAS DEPORTES/INSTALACIONES: Canchas de tenis, campos de tiro con arco, centros ecuestres y jardines comunitarios en las instalaciones de la Ciudad ya estarán abiertos partir del pasado fin de semana.

 DEBEMOS USAR MASCARILLAS CUANDO SALGAMOS DE CASA: Todos los habitantes de Los Ángeles debemos usar mascarillas cuando salgamos de casa, excepto niños pequeños y personas con discapacidades.

• SE AMPLIA PROGRAMA DE ZONA PARA PICK UP: Todas las tiendas minoristas, no solo restaurantes, dentro de la Ciudad pueden obtener un permiso de zona de pick up temporal para estacionamiento al frente de su negocio para que sus clientes puedan recoger sus alimentos y/o productos. Negociantes y restauranteros pueden solicitar los nuevos letreros que designan estos lugares; una vez aprobados, los letreros se instalarán en un plazo de 3 días de forma gratuita. Para más información y solicitar su letrero, visite en línea.

El alcalde Eric Garcetti lanzó la campaña All In for LA para alentar e inspirar a los angelinos a permanecer unidos, alertas y fortalecidos frente al COVID-19. Ver la campaña PSA aquí.

Friends,

As I mentioned before, tenants remain as our most vulnerable.  In a city that is comprised of 64% renters, every member of this Council has pushed for every conceivable measure to ease the pain and hardship caused by this unprecedented pandemic.  A measure for a one-year rent repayment plan and a one-year rent freeze for RSO's stand as the most progressive actions a city has ever adopted in the state, if not the nation.  The only difference with those that didn't pass, though well-intentioned, was the single hurdle presented by no less than our Constitution in ensuring that whenever there is a government taking of property, every individual is entitled to just compensation.  

For these reasons, we have focused our efforts on assisting our most vulnerable with the means and resources while keeping families safe and sheltered. Along with motions passed this week by my colleagues and I in rent relief programs, there is a new bill introduced in Congress that is the " Emergency Rental Assistance and Rental Market Stabilization Act of 2020". Along with the Council President, my colleagues, and myself, we introduced a motion strongly endorsing and supporting this legislation led by our Speaker and the House of Representatives.

This bill would establish an Emergency Rental Assistance Program, which would provide $100 billion to help families and individuals pay their rent and utility bills and remain stably housed; help rental property owners of all sizes continue to cover their costs, including the costs of necessary maintenance to ensure residents’ health and safety; and help the economic recovery by stabilizing renters in their homes and the broader rental housing market during and after the COVID-19 emergency.  

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Remembering Nativo Lopez

Nativo Lopez

It is with a heavy heart that we remember longtime activist Nativo Lopez who passed away almost a year ago on May 19, 2019. Nativo was the executive director of Hermandad Mexicana Nacional – a community service organization and advocacy organization for Mexican and Latin American immigrants. He was also a national president of the Mexican-American Political Association. He lost a battle with cancer. Nativo was born on October 3, 1951, in Los Angeles. May he continue to rest in peace.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

On Tuesday, Council passed Councilmember Cedillo's motion to issue $16,000,000 in bonds to construct 41 affordable housing units in the Pico-Union neighborhood, at a project known as Mariposa Lily. The project's 41 units will be kept affordable for 55 years after construction due to a covenant with the City of Los Angeles. Councilmember Cedillo continues to push for further construction of affordable units to help alleviate the shortage of housing units in Los Angeles.

Councilmember Cedillo supports the "Emergency Rental Assistance and Rental Market Stabilization Act of 2020" detailed in his letter above. You can read more about the legislation here: Page 1  Page 2 Page 3 and Page 4

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Mayor Eric Garcetti Modifies Safer at Home Emergency Order: ANGELENOS MUST WEAR FACE-COVERINGS WHEN OUTSIDE OF HOME

SOCIAL - Face Coverings

Mayor Eric Garcetti issued an order on Wednesday requiring Angelenos to wear face coverings outside their homes. The order will aid the fight against COVID-19, as restrictions are gradually eased to allow more people to return to work and outdoor recreation.

The Mayor has also modified the City of L.A.’s “Safer at Home” emergency order to allow all retail businesses except those in indoor malls to resume limited operations with delivery and curbside or door side service and to open beaches and more public recreational space for outdoor exercise. New guidelines on face coverings exempt children under 2 and people with certain disabilities and build on the previous action by Mayor Garcetti requiring non-medical essential business workers and customers to wear face coverings

“While the City’s Safer at Home order will remain in place beyond May 15, we will also continue to adjust the order gradually — to safely allow more activities, more businesses to operate, and more Angelenos to get back to work,” Mayor Garcetti said. “We’re not moving past COVID-19, we’re learning to live with it — and we will keep taking measured steps toward a new, safer reality in the days and weeks ahead.”  Here are the Reopening Protocols for Retail Establishments and the continuation of the Safer at Home Order that Begins to Move The County into State 2 the County’s Roadmap to Recovery issued May 13, 2020.

Latest Updates From Mayor Garcetti

  • RETAIL - All retail locations--from electronics to beauty stores--can open for curbside, door side, and delivery.
  • MANUFACTURING - Manufacturing that supports any retail that can also open at reduced capacity, as long as they adhere to sanitation and distancing protocols.
  • BEACHES - Beaches as also open for ACTIVE recreation only, like swimming, surfing, running, walking. Parking lots, piers, beach bike baths, and concessions remain closed. Gatherings, sunbathing, sitting, and group sports are not allowed.
  • OTHER SPORTS/FACILITIES - Tennis and pickleball courts, archery ranges, equestrian centers, model airplane areas, and community gardens at City facilities will open this weekend.
  • FACE COVERINGS MUST BE WORN OUTSIDE HOME - We’re requiring all Angelenos to wear masks when they leave their homes, except small children and people with disabilities.
  • EXPANDED PICKUP ZONE PROGRAM - All retail shops within the City can get a temporary pick-up zone permit (not just restaurants) to reserve parking spots right out front for customers to pick up items. For businesses and restaurants that apply and get approved, new signs designating these spots will be installed within 3 days for free. To find more information and apply, go to LADOT.LACity.org/retailpickup.

Mayor Eric Garcetti launched the All In for LA campaign to encourage and inspire Angelenos to remain unified, vigilant, and resilient in the response to COVID-19. See the campaign PSA here.

We have a reservation only golf system, with heightened social distancing, limits on capacity and other appropriate safety and sanitation rules. *Note putting course in Holmby Park remains closed.

Trails: For our trails, we have developed a robust parking, messaging system, communication program, and enforcement from Rangers, LAPD, aerial support, and other monitoring methods. *Note Runyon Canyon closed until further notice and does not reopen this weekend.

Tennis and Pickle Ball: The City of Los Angeles has issued a Tennis and Pickleball Reopening Plan. Tennis and pickleball courts host tennis and pickleball, which is a non-contact sport.

The Economic and Workforce Development Department will provide $11 million in no-fee microloans of $5,000 to $20,000 — which may be used to cover working capital. Since cash flow is critical at this unprecedented time, the program will offer relaxed underwriting with no credit score minimum, a generous allowance to meet debt service, and a 100% Loan to Value ratio. The interest rate can either be 0% for a term of six months to one year, or 3% to 5% for a term of up to five years. The microloan program is being paired with a Small Business Resilience Toolkit, which is being distributed as a digital guidebook and includes vital information covering Federal, State, County, and City emergency policies and programs impacting small . It also offers strategies for adjusting to the effects that COVID-19 is having on businesses including ways to keep employees safe, maintain operations at maximum possible capacity, and prepare business continuity plans.

Mayor Garcetti Relaxes DMV Restrictions Per Request from Councilmember Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo reached out to Mayor Garcetti on relaxing DMV restrictions that are important during normal times, but could hinder rather assist.

Thank you, Mayor for relaxing Enforcement of Vehicle Registration and Driver’s License Violations. Some residents of the City of Los Angeles may not be able to get to a DMV office to renew a driver’s license, identification card or vehicle registration. If such visits are not possible due to the City’s March 19, 2020 Safe at Home Order, then residents should not be penalized for failure to comply with these provisions.

The Mayor directed LADOT to ensure that its parking officers refrain from ticketing or towing any vehicles for expired registration during this emergency period. Vehicle owners shall remain subject to all other parking enforcement restrictions, consistent with state and local laws and applicable emergency orders.

The Mayor also directed the Chief of Police to issue guidance to police officers to refrain, during this emergency period, from issuing citations for driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations that have expired in the last six months. Drivers within the City of Los Angeles will nonetheless be expected to obey all other laws; nothing in this memorandum should be construed to suggest that the Police Department will not be enforcing all moving violations, consistent with state and local laws and any applicable emergency orders.

Sample_3_Newsletter_Header.jpg

Friends,

Before I talk about the good news in Council this week, I just want to do a shout out for our seniors to apply for the City’s latest version of the senior meal program that provides 3 meals per day. There are eligibility requirements, but I would rather have more apply rather than less.

This week, we voted for a one-year rent freeze for RSO units.  We also supported Council President Martinez’s motion and a related ordinance to provide a private cause of action for tenants in cases where the landlord violates City guidelines enacted during this crisis.  As an added option to this court related action, I introduced a motion requesting HCID to report back in a week for a second option where tenants, in lieu of the private cause of action, can choose for an administrative remedy much shorter than the court process provided by the private cause of action.

We also passed innovative City programs that assist the restaurant and beverage industry, as well as its workers, to recover from the economic crisis caused by COVID-19. 

As we enter a new phase of slowly returning to a new normal, it is up to all of us to remember that our recent success in flattening the curve in the fight against COVID-19 was the result of tireless efforts from first responders, health care workers, selfless individuals and everyday heroes, combined with the City’s unyielding resolve to be unified in thought and action.  Together, we can do it again.  This time, get one of the largest and most diverse cities in the world, back to work.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Week of May 2-May 8, 2020

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

UPDATE: Safer LA Guidelines

Mayor Garcetti has updated the City of Los Angeles’s Safe At Home orders to move into Phase 2 of Safer LA.

Until there is a vaccine or effective treatment, COVID-19 will continue to be a serious public health threat to our communities, our city, and our country. We must learn how to live with the new reality and find ways to safely begin to gradually lift restrictions, making minor adjustments over a long period of time.

As we move forward, it is critical that we continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 and avoid a surge in the number of cases that would overwhelm our hospitals.

The City of Los Angeles will take a gradual and staged approach to our response to this crisis — working with leaders across the region and continuing to be guided by expertise from County, State, and Federal public health officials. This approach will enable us to slowly lift restrictions while carefully monitoring risks and needs, and adjusting our approach as needed.

The gradual relaxing of restrictions will require the patience, persistence and partnership of residents, businesses, workers, government representatives  and public health officials.

STAGES OF A GRADUAL AND SAFE ADJUSTING OF RESTRICTIONS

Starting May 8, the City and County of Los Angeles will enter Stage II and begin the process of slow and gradual adjustments to the Safer at Home order. Physical distancing, face coverings, and other safety measures will remain in place and will be even more important. 

Safer at Home Timeline 5-8-2020

Starting May 8, the City and County of Los Angeles will enter Stage II and begin the process of slow and gradual adjustments to the Safer at Home order. Physical distancing, face coverings, and other safety measures will remain in place and will be even more important.

A gradual approach is necessary to safely navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to slowly taper restrictions so we can avoid a surge of new COVID-19 cases that could overwhelm our healthcare and other systems. This strategy will be slow, deliberate, coordinated, and driven by data and public health criteria.

The first stage — where Los Angeles has been over the last several months — is crisis management mode, which has the goal of saving as many lives as possible.

The second stage aims to transition Angelenos back to a “new reality,” with a slow and gradual change to some restrictions, while always ensuring that there are adequate safety measures in place.

In the third and fourth stages, the City will transition to a state of monitoring and aim to lift additional restrictions. In the fifth and final stage, the City will be fully reopened and turn its attention to reimagining itself in a post-COVID-19 period.

Stages ultimately become less restrictive as they progress. Key milestones must be reached before the City can transition to the next stage of recovery.

Golf and Trails Will Be Open

LA City Golf Courses and most trails will open tomorrow consistent with the Mayor's modified SAH directives to allow for golfing and trail usage compiled in consultation and following the County Department of Public Health's recent expansions. 

Our updated park closure rules are attached and the websitelaparks.org

Golf: We have strong rules and regulations in place to address social distancing, mitigate risks, and keep health and safety at the forefront in and near our Golf Courses. We have a reservation only golf system, with heightened social distancing, limits on capacity and other appropriate safety and sanitation rules. *Note putting course in Holmby Park remains closed.

Trails: For our trails, we have developed a robust parking, messaging system, communication program, and enforcement from Rangers, LAPD, aerial support and other monitoring methods. *Note Runyon Canyon closed until further notice and does not reopen this weekend.

COVID-19 Small Bus Info 4-9-2020Economic And Workforce Development Department Will Provide $11 Million In No-Fee Microloans of $5,000 To $20,000 Business Tool Kig Mayor Eric Garcetti announced an $11 million economic relief package for small businesses impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The Economic and Workforce Development Department will provide $11 million in no-fee microloans of $5,000 to $20,000 — which may be used to cover working capital. Since cash flow is critical at this unprecedented time, the program will offer relaxed underwriting with no credit score minimum, a generous allowance to meet debt service, and a 100% Loan to Value ratio. The interest rate can either be 0% for a term of six months to one year, or 3% to 5% for a term of up to five years. The microloan program is being paired with a Small Business Resilience Toolkit, which is being distributed as a digital guidebook and includes vital information covering Federal, State, County, and City emergency policies and programs impacting small . It also offers strategies for adjusting to the effects that COVID-19 is having on businesses including ways to keep employees safe, maintain operations at maximum possible capacity, and prepare business continuity plans. To apply for a microloan or view the toolkit, please visit lamayor.org/loan.

Mayor Garcetti Relaxes DMV Restrictions Per Request from Councilmember Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo reached out to Mayor Garcetti on relaxing DMV restrictions that are important during normal times, but could hinder rather assist.

Thank you, Mayor for relaxing Enforcement of Vehicle Registration and Driver’s License Violations. Some residents of the City of Los Angeles may not be able to get to a DMV office to renew a driver’s license, identification card or vehicle registration. If such visits are not possible due to the City’s March 19, 2020 Safe at Home Order, then residents should not be penalized for failure to comply with these provisions.

The Mayor directed LADOT to ensure that its parking officers refrain from ticketing or towing any vehicles for expired registration during this emergency period. Vehicle owners shall remain subject to all other parking enforcement restrictions, consistent with state and local laws and applicable emergency orders.

The Mayor also directed the Chief of Police to issue guidance to police officers to refrain, during this emergency period, from issuing citations for driver’s licenses or vehicle registrations that have expired in the last six months. Drivers within the City of Los Angeles will nonetheless be expected to obey all other laws; nothing in this memorandum should be construed to suggest that the Police Department will not be enforcing all moving violations, consistent with state and local laws and any applicable emergency orders.

Sample_3_Newsletter_Header.jpg

Friends,

Last week, we protected renters with rent relief.  Circling back to this landlord-tenant component of our City’s overall housing process, Council approved an initiative to notify by mail all rental property owners and their tenants of housing rights and responsibilities during the COVID-19 local emergency period.

Similar to renters, small business is the City’s economic lifeblood.  Our restaurants, bars, as well as modestly-sized retail and service companies need all the flexibility to recover and restore their financial health prior to Covid-19.  At the same time, laid-off workers who were instrumental in the growth and prosperity of larger-sized companies require the same protections given to those we deem our most vulnerable.

In Wednesday’s meeting, Council voted to exempt small businesses while protecting laid-off employees of large corporations.  The ordinance allows service employees with seniority to have first right of rehire, with five days to respond. Employers will be able to notify former employees through writing, email, and text messages when work is available again.  Employers with 25 or less employees, as well as restaurants, bars, and similar establishments, are not covered by this ordinance.

I also seconded a motion by my colleague, Paul Krekorian, to provide senior meals citywide.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

Councilmember, First District

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Council Meeting 3-27-2020 Photo 1

At Wednesday's Council meeting, Councilmember Cedillo continued his commitment to the residents of the First District and Los Angeles. Council passed Councilmember Cedillo's motion to reallocate over $3 million in federal funding to the City renter assistance program and passed first consideration of a "right of recall" ordinance to provide long-term employment security to workers made unemployed by the COVID-19 public health crisis.

Councilmember Cedillo also provided key support to Councilmembers Krekorian and Price's motion to fund and begin a program to ensure food security for seniors across Los Angeles, by providing them with meals delivered by transportation providers. Currently, each district has been engaging in piecemeal solutions to provide food and meals to seniors, but the new $25 million Senior Meal Delivery program will provide a unified, city-wide system to ensure none are left behind.

Mayor Garcetti: Free Covid-19 Testing Now Open To All Residents, With Or Without Symptoms


Mayor Eric Garcetti announced this week that L.A. will be the first big city in America to offer wide-scale, free COVID-19 testing to all residents, whether or not they are experiencing symptoms of the virus. The testing will be open to any resident of Los Angeles County, with tests administered at eight locations inside the City of Los Angeles.

“So long as COVID-19 spreads, we have to scale up our response — and because this disease can be a silent killer, we have carefully built the capacity to get more people tested,” said Mayor Garcetti. “No one should have to wait, wonder, or risk infecting others. Do not leave it to chance. Schedule a test.”

The online portal where testing appointments are made now enables any resident of Los Angeles County to schedule a test, regardless of whether they are showing symptoms of COVID-19. Priority for the same or next-day testing is still given to people with symptoms, such as fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Testing is also prioritized for medical professionals and certain other critical front-line workers who interact with the public as part of their job duties.

The testing program — which began with one Los Angeles Fire Department-staffed location, and has grown to eight sites within the City and 34 across the region — has grown dramatically in just over one month. Thanks to partnerships with Los Angeles County and the nonprofit emergency response organization CORE, the program has already completed about 140,000 tests since March 20. 

Request a test here. For more questions about testing, please visit our FAQ for answers to frequently asked questions.

“All L.A. County residents can now get free coronavirus tests, Garcetti says”
