  • Councilmember Cedillo Distributes Turkeys to Low-Income Seniors and Families

  • The Wall Las Memorias Rededication Ceremony on December 1st

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

Low-income families are the most vulnerable during normal times, but during the COVID-19 health crisis, they need our help even more. Additionally, over 60,000 people were infected with the coronavirus in the First District, many low-income families. During Thanksgiving, I want to make sure that families celebrate with a free turkey and be thankful they survived this health crisis.

On December 1, 2004, I provided significant financial support for the first publicly funded AIDS monument in the nation that was dedicated before thousands of supporters and community leaders. Today, The Wall Las Memorias AIDS Monument in Lincoln Park has over 360 names etched into it—the names of people who have died from AIDS complications.

Please join me at the rededication of the AIDS Monument on December 1, 2021, on World AIDS Day, when we raise awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection and mourn those who have died of the disease. Again, I provided major financial support on a significant renovation of the AIDS monument that includes a new irrigation system, fresh landscaping, including fifteen fully grown trees, new walkways, and state-of-the-art LED lighting.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

  • Worrying Trend: COVID-19 Cases Edging Up in CD 1

  • Pocket Park Renamed in Memory of Nativo Lopez

  • Improvements Coming to Rio De Los Angeles State Park

  • More Resources for Cathay Manor Apartments

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

This week the number of new COVID-19 infections and deaths edged up for the second week in a row. We are still at a fourth of the last surge's peak, but it's a worrying trend. We also, unfortunately, reached a milestone of over 60,000 COVID-19 cases. Please stay safe and get you, your children, other family members, and friends vaccinated.

This week my staff and I continue to bring resources to the neighborhoods of CD 1. We continue to respond to the needs of constituents throughout my district.

This week the City Council adopted my motion to rename the Pico-Union Vest Park to Parque Nativo Lopez. Nativo was a good friend and organizer who fought fearlessly on behalf of immigrants and other underserved communities.

I also look forward to celebrating improvements to Rio de Los Angeles State Park. I have committed $2,750,000 to the project, and with the support from our local and state partners, I am thrilled to continue supporting green space in our densely populated district.

After I got one elevator operating manually at Cathay Manor Apartments, which brought relief to hundreds of low-income seniors, I brought multiple resources to the tenants this week, including complimentary bags of produce, laundry services, and water. I will continue to help our vulnerable seniors.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

CEDILLO WEEKLY

Week of November 8 to November 12, 2021

Happy Veterans Day

Gilbert Saenz Cedillo

This week we honored all those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. We are forever grateful.

I want to recognize my late father, Gilbert Saenz Cedillo, who, at age 17, left high school and enlisted in the Army. As my father later told me, the three squares a day and new underwear sold him on joining the military. He was assigned to the 82nd Airborne and trained as a combat paratrooper. Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans—a day so special to my family—a day we dedicated to those who especially deserve our thanks and gratitude. Happy Veterans Day to all who have served our country!

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

COVID-19 This Week In Council District 1

Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine is now approved under Emergency Use Authorization for children 5-11 years old. Children 5+ may now get vaccinated at select, walk-up clinics county-wide. Fully vaccinated children will help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and be better protected in our communities.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

This week I was pleased that the City Council adopted my motion to rename Pico-Union Vest Park, located at 1827 South Hoover Street, to Parque Nativo Lopez in memory of Lawrence "Nativo" Lopez and in recognition of his contributions to Los Angeles and Southern California.

Lawrence "Nativo" Lopez was a Chicano political leader and immigrant rights activist in the City of Los Angeles and Southern California. Lopez was the founder and president of the Mexican American Political Association and the executive director of the Hermandad Mexicana Latinoamericana (formerly the Hermandad Mexicana Nacional), a community service and advocacy organization for Mexican-American immigrants in California. His importance in Los Angeles politics has been compared by the Los Angeles Times to that of Al Sharpton in New York and Jesse Jackson in Chicago. 

Nativo’s activism for immigrant rights started in the Pico-Union community, so it is fitting that this pocket park be designated in his honor and perhaps the recognition will inspire the younger generation. He was a dear friend whose life work advanced the rights of working people and inspired me to enter into public service.

ANIMAL SERVICES

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month. To encourage the pet adoptions of our senior shelter guests, L.A. Animal Services is offering reduced adoption fees Saturday, November 13th, and Sunday, November 14th. Adoption fees for dogs will be $51 (not including license) and $75 for puppies. The adoption fees for cats and kittens will be waived thanks to a generous grant from the ASPCA.

You can view our furry friends who are looking for their new homes by going to laanimalservices.com/adopt.

Senior for Seniors Program

LA Animal Services offers a Senior for Seniors program for seniors living in the City looking for a companion animal, matching senior companion animals (seven years and older) from our shelters with senior adults (62 years and older). Senior adopters also receive 50 percent off the adoption fee (not including license), and pets adopted from L.A. Animal Services already come microchipped, vaccinated as well as being spayed or neutered.

Why Companion Animals are Great for Seniors

  • Pets have been known to lower blood pressure.
  • A senior pet has usually already lived in a home, so they are already house-trained and know basic commands.
  • With a senior pet, what you see is what you get as their personalities are already established.
  • Seniors with companion animals become more active, go for more walks, and are generally more active than those without pets.
  • Most everyone, especially seniors, will say that a companion animal is their friend and are less likely to be lonely with a canine, feline, or bunny friend around.
  • Seniors take better care of themselves when they care for a companion animal.
  • Bringing a trustworthy pet companion can provide a sense of security.

If you adopt a senior furry friend this weekend or have adopted or fostered an older pet from L.A. Animal Services, join us in celebrating Adopt a Senior Pet Month by sharing a photo or video of your furry friend and tagging us on social media using the hashtags #AdoptaSeniorPetMonth #LAcitypets #LAanimalservices! We're also always looking for stories to share and be featured on our social media accounts, so we encourage you to submit your story and photos to us by clicking here.

Amigos y amigas:

Mi principal preocupación es la seguridad, la protección y la accesibilidad de nuestras personas mayores e inquilinos en Cathay Manor Apartments. Es inaceptable tener ascensores que no funcionan. Es por eso que tomé medidas y reuní a los departamentos de Vivienda y de Construcción y Seguridad con la División Cívica de la Oficina del Fiscal de la Ciudad para que el viernes por la noche se contratara a una empresa de reparación de ascensores que restaurara inmediatamente el servicio.

Cathay Manor es un edificio de apartamentos de 16 pisos ocupado por personas mayores, muchas de las cuales están discapacitadas. Los dos ascensores que daban servicio a Cathay Manor estuvieron fuera de servicio desde el 15 de octubre, creando condiciones inseguras y peligrosas que hacen que la vida diaria sea extremadamente difícil para unos 250 residentes mayores vulnerables. Ahora tienen un ascensor operable mientras que ambos serán reemplazados por elevadores mas modernos.

Por otra parte, invito a inquilinos, propietarios y administradores de propiedades a los seminarios web sobre las leyes contra el acoso de inquilinos y las leyes contra la discriminación de vivienda justa organizados por el Departamento de Vivienda. Conoce sus derechos y responsabilidades en estos valiosos seminarios informativos.

El Departamento de Servicios para Animales ha abierto su despensa de alimentos para mascotas gratis en el Centro de Servicios para Animales de North Central en Lincoln Heights para familias e individuos de bajos ingresos. Aprovecha este valioso recurso.

Esta semana quedé gratamente impresionado con la develación del mural “Champions of Change” (Campeones del Cambio) en Albion Park en Lincoln Heights. Cada persona en el mural sobresalió en Lincoln Heights como un impulsor de cambios. Tómate el tiempo para visitar este increíble mural en honor a personalidades que son una parte esencial de nuestra historia.

Gracias a mis gestiones, un ascensor funciona las 24 horas del día para brindar accesibilidad y seguridad a más de 250 inquilinos, muchos de los cuales son personas mayores de bajos ingresos y algunos con incapacidades.

Esta semana conmemoramos el 30 aniversario de Rolling Thunder, un movimiento laboral liderado por el Concejal Gil Cedillo. Antes de su servicio público, Cedillo encabezó el sindicato Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Local 660. Se desempeñó como gerente general del sindicato más grande del condado de Los Ángeles de 1990 a 1996.

En 1991, Cedillo dirigió Rolling Thunder, una huelga que culminó con un paro general de 41,000 sindicalizados del Local 660 de SEIU. Lucharon por mejores beneficios y salarios para los trabajadores del condado, incluidas las enfermeras vitales para la atención médica de los residentes.

Dear Friend,

My paramount concern is for the safety, security, and accessibility of our seniors and tenants at Cathay Manor Apartments. It is totally unacceptable to have inoperable elevators. That is why I took action and brought together the Housing Department, Building and Safety Department and the Civic Division of the City Attorney’s Office to secure a qualified elevator repair company to immediately restore elevator service on Friday evening.

Cathay Manor is a 16-story high-rise apartment building occupied by senior citizens, some of whom are disabled. The two elevators serving Cathay Manor had been inoperative since October 15, 2021, creating unsafe and hazardous conditions that make daily life extremely difficult for approximately 250 vulnerable senior citizen residents. They now have one operable elevator, and both will be replaced with modernized versions.

I invite tenants, landlords, and property managers to webinars on tenant anti-harassment and fair housing anti-discrimination laws hosted by the Housing Department. Hear about your rights and responsibilities at these worthwhile webinars.

On Sunday, the Department of Animal Services opens a Free Pet Food Pantry at the North Central Animal Services Center in Lincoln Heights for low-income families and individuals. Please take advantage of this valuable service.

This week I was captivated at the unveiling of the Champions of Change Mural at Albion Park in Lincoln Heights. Each person in the mural emerged from Lincoln Heights as a change maker. Please take the time to visit this incredible mural honoring people who were an essential part of our history.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

One elevator is now operating 24-hours daily because of my aggressive efforts to bring accessibility and safety to over 250 tenants, many of whom are low-income seniors. The Cathay Manor tenants' health and well-being are my utmost concern.

On Friday, the Council voted to authorize the Los Angeles Housing Department to apply for $252 million from the State’s Homekey Program to purchase properties to create long-term supportive housing for formerly homeless individuals. The Council approved a local match of $145.2 million which would support the creation of 450 units, and instructed the City Administrative Officer to identify additional funds which could produce 300 more units. The City has been collaborating with the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) which could bring 350 additional units. This is a grand total of 1,100 new units devoted to supportive housing serving the formerly homeless!

The moment is now to act and help our unhoused neighbors make the transition into long-term supportive housing. This vote is one step toward addressing an unprecedented crisis.

My paramount concern is for the safety and access of our seniors and tenants at Cathay Manor, and it is totally unacceptable to have inoperable elevators. That is why I requested the City to step in and find a solution to immediately get at least one elevator operational while modernizing the second elevator.

My office had previously brought together the Housing Department, Department of Building and Safety to fix the elevator. The elevator was later inspected and tagged as being non-compliant because the elevator would not stop appropriately on certain floors.

My office again brought the appropriate City Departments, including the Housing Department, Department of Building and Safety, and the City Attorney’s Civil Branch, to work on immediate solutions to have at least one of the elevators to be in operation. The City is currently working on getting one elevator manually operated while the second elevator will be modernized. We hope to have a manual operator within the next 48 hours.

Robert Vargas grew up in Boyle Heights but found artistic acclaim a few blocks west. Galleries in New York, Chicago, Miami, Abu Dhabi, Tokyo, and Osaka have shown his work, but tens of thousands of Angelenos see his murals daily on office buildings across DTLA.

“With the right time and message, a mural can really transcend a neighborhood or a community,” Vargas said. “They allow me to reach art aficionados, as well as people who wouldn't otherwise have access to museums and galleries.”

His most ambitious project is a 14-story mural he hopes will rank as the largest mural in the world by a single artist.

$37 Million to Help Small Businesses Recover

Eric Stollsteimer opened his first music shop in 1996 in his hometown of Ann Arbor, Michigan. He moved west and set up shop in CD1, first in Chinatown and then Lincoln Heights.

Today, Caveman Vintage Music sells and repairs instruments and equipment, and sells vinyl records. The business was a hit … until the coronavirus hit.

“We were shut for at least two months,” Stollsteimer said, “but my landlord never stopped charging rent.”

He applied to the City for a $20,000 loan, which was later changed to a grant because it covered employee salaries, and the City designated a parking spot for curbside pick-up. Caveman also received a burst of attention when Mayor Eric Garcetti held a press conference in front of the store.

Stollsteimer’s store has stabilized, but other small businesses continue to struggle. More targeted financial support and services are on the way.

Garcetti and the City Council allocated $37 million from the American Rescue Plan Act for small businesses, including $25 million for 5,000 restaurants, and $12 million to help about 800 small businesses pay rent.

The Economic & Workforce Development Department (EWDD) is administering this program. For more information, contact Barrio Planners at (323) 264-9020.

Known for their force in the arts and social justice, Culture Clash presents An LA Ghost Story. This cinematic production tells the stories of three families who watched the rise and fall of Chavez Ravine as it documents how development uprooted the lives of people who called the place home, all for the construction of a Dodgers baseball stadium. Come enjoy the story of Chavez Ravine as we acknowledge the history of our home, Los Angeles.

Cierre pacífico del MacArthur Park para que el Departamento de Recreación y Parques trabaje en mejoras de espacios públicos seguros, limpios y protegidos

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

Con gusto les informo que coordiné el cierre pacífico y exitoso del MacArthur Park para que el Departamento de Recreación y Parques de la Ciudad iniciara el mantenimiento para un área que mucho lo necesitaba, esto en apego a mis esfuerzos para mantener los espacios públicos seguros, limpios y protegidos.

Entre el 1 de enero y el 15 de octubre de 2021, la Autoridad de Servicios para Personas sin Hogar de Los Ángeles (LAHSA por sus siglas en inglés) y People Assisting the Homeless (PATH por sus siglas en inglés) alojaron a 326 personas que vivían en el MacArthur Park (164 de ambos lados del parque antes del 27 de septiembre, más 126 de solo el área de cierre propuesta entre el 27 de septiembre y el 15 de octubre de 2021). El 15 de octubre, también atendimos a 36 personas que no vivían en el parque, pero se acercaron expresando su deseo de mudarse a un lugar bajo techo.

"Estoy orgulloso de los esfuerzos de LAHSA, PATH y de mi personal para llevar a refugio seguro bajo techo a estas 326 personas sin hogar", dijo el concejal Cedillo. “Esperamos que el Departamento de Recreación y Parques complete el trabajo de rehabilitación y mantenimiento del parque, mientras seguimos trabajando con PATH y LAHSA para identificar y asegurar viviendas permanentes para 126 personas que anteriormente vivían en MacArthur Park y que fueron trasladados a refugio bajo techo durante el operativo para el cierre del área.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

Concejal, Distrito 1

PD.- Les comparto algunas de las historias en los medios de comunicación sobre mis esfuerzos para hacer al MacArthur Park un sitio seguro, limpio y protegido.

1Voice/1Voz es una publicación trimestral bilingüe de la Oficina del Concejal Gil Cedillo. Aquí hay algunos extractos de la edición de otoño de 2021.

Las personas con problemas mentales necesitan tratamiento, no cárcel

Foto: Steve Weingarten

Equipos de oficiales de LAPD y médicos de Salud Mental del Condado ayudan a desactivar confrontaciones explosivas.

El oficial Superior Julián Canales, recibió un reporte sobre una mujer sin hogar en el MacArthur Park que “parecía fuera de contexto”.

Canales acudió al llamado vestido de manera casual con una camisa tipo polo con el logo del LAPD bordado. Su pareja en la Unidad de Evaluación Mental (MEU) es un médico del Departamento de Salud del Condado (DHM).

El objetivo de la colaboración entre LAPD y DMH es reducir la violencia durante los operativos policiacos con pacientes de enfermedades mentales y evaluar los servicios de salud mental disponibles. La misión es atender a la persona, no enviarla a la cárcel.

“La gente marca al 911 y por eso casi siempre hay policías en la escena cuando llegamos. Los policías nos llaman cuando se dan cuenta de que no hay un delito pero detectan un problemas de salud mental”.

En este caso, proporcionaron el nombre de la mujer y apareció en la base de datos de Canales. El médico de DHM explicó que la mujer deliraba por un ataque de pánico y atemorizada, huyó del hogar provisional en donde vivía; estuvo a punto de perder su lugar en una vivienda permanente. La acción rápida de Canales y del equipo de MEU resolvió ese dilema.

“Fue fácil para nosotros”, dijo Canales, “pero el resultado hubiera sido muy trágico sin nosotros”, explicó.

Salario mínimo alcanza los $15 por hora

Seis años después de promulgarse como ley, todas las empresas de Los Ángeles deben pagar el salario mínimo de $15 por hora.

El Concilio votó 14-1 para aprobar la ley en mayo del 2015; la escala salarial aumentó gradualmente de $9 a $15 durante cinco años: $12 por hora en julio del 2017, a $13.25 en julio del 2018 y a $14.25 en julio del 2019.

Concejal Cedillo ayudó a la ley de salario mínimo y creó la Oficina de Normas Salariales; los empleadores no clasificarán erróneamente a trabajadores para reducir su salario.

Las empresas comenzaron a pagar $15 por hora el año pasado, pero las de 25 empleados o menos tuvieron hasta julio pasado para igualar el salario. La ordenanza ahora exige el aumento del salario mínimo en función a la inflación a partir del 2022.

COMISIÓN DE REDISTRIBUCIÓN DEL CONCILIO DE LA CIUDAD DE LOS ÁNGELES

“Fall in Love!” es una promoción de LA Animal Services para que te enamores y adoptes a un nuevo amiguito peludo. Animal Services ofreció tarifas de adopción con descuento el sábado 23 y el domingo 24 de octubre durante su evento de adopción “Fall in Love!”, con el fin de fomentar la adopción de mascotas. Las tarifas de adopción para perros son $51 (sin incluir la licencia) y $75 para cachorros. No hay tarifas de adopción para gatos y gatitos gracias a una generosa subvención de ASPCA.

Durante el mes de octubre, Animal Services también se unirá a Subaru y sus concesionarios para celebrar la campaña Subaru Loves Pets dirigida a promover la adopción perros mayores y/o con discapacidades. Estos perros, cariñosamente conocidos como "desvalidos" (“Underdogs”), tienen mayores dificultades para ser adoptados y para encontrar un hogar amoroso. Para motivar aún más a los posibles adoptantes, Subaru Sherman Oaks donará $100 por cada mascota adoptada de Animal Services hasta el 31 de octubre.

Peaceful and Successful Closure of MacArthur Park So That The City’s Department of Recreation and Parks Could Start Much-Needed Deferred Maintenance to Keep Public Spaces Safe, Clean, and Secure For All.

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

I coordinated the peaceful and successful closure of MacArthur Park so that the City’s Department of Recreation and Parks could start much-needed deferred maintenance consistent with my efforts to keep public spaces safe, clean, and secure for all.

Between January 1, 2021, and October 15, 2021, The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) and People Assisting The Homeless (PATH) moved 326 (164 from both sides of the park before September 27, 2021, plus 126 from only the proposed closure area between September 27, 2021, and October 15, 2021) people indoors from living in Mac Arthur Park. In addition, on Friday, October 15, we assisted 36 walk-ups who were not living in the park but came to the park expressing a desire to move indoors.

I am proud of the efforts by LAHSA, PATH, and my staff to bring 326 unhoused people indoors from MacArthur Park,” stated Councilmember Cedillo. “We look forward to the park rehabilitation and deferred maintenance work being completed by the Department of Recreation and Parks and we remain working with PATH and LAHSA to identify and secure permanent housing for those 126 formerly living at MacArthur Park that was moved indoors in preparation for the closure.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

People in Mental Distress Need Treatment, Not Jail

Photo Credit: Steve Weingarten

Teams of LAPD officers and County mental-health clinicians are on the scene and helping defuse explosive confrontations.

Senior Lead Officer Julian Canales recently received a call about a homeless woman in MacArthur Park who “didn’t seem to belong there.”

Canales wore “soft clothing” – a polo shirt with embroidered LAPD badge instead of a starched uniform or tactical clothing. His partner in the Mental Evaluation Unit (MEU) was a clinician from the L.A. County Department of Mental Health.

The LAPD and DMH collaborative’s mission is to reduce the potential for violence during police contacts involving people experiencing mental illness and assess the mental health services available. The goal is to get the person treatment instead of jailing them.

“People usually call 911 first, so uniformed police are almost always on the scene when we get there,” Canales said. “They usually call us when they realize a crime hasn’t been committed and mental health issues are involved.”

Officers in the park gave Canales the woman’s name, and she popped up in his database. The DHM clinician began to draw out the woman’s story: She was delusional, had fled interim housing for fear that she was in danger, and was on the verge of losing a placement in permanent housing. Quick action resolved that problem.

“It didn’t take us a lot of work,” Canales said, “but the outcome could have been very bad without us.”

Minimum Wage Finally Reaches $15 per Hour

Six years after a law was enacted, all L.A. businesses must pay employees at least $15 per hour.

After the City Council voted 14-1 to approve the pathbreaking law in May 2015, the wage scale gradually increased from $9 to $15 over five years. The minimum rose to $12 an hour by July 2017, $13.25 per hour by July 2018, and $14.25 per hour by July 2019.

Councilmember Gil Cedillo helped pass the minimum wage law and created the Office of Wage Standards to stop employers from shorting their workers’ pay by misclassifying them.

Large businesses began paying $15 hourly last year, but businesses with 25 or fewer employees had until this July to match the wage. The ordinance now calls for the minimum wage in 2022 to continue increasing based on the cost of living.

LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL REDISTRICTING COMMISSION

The City of Los Angeles redistricting process - an event that redraws the City Council District lines every ten years - continues to move forward. We encourage you to participate in the public hearings.

LA Animal Services invites you to ‘Fall in Love’ this weekend and adopt a new furry friend! LA Animal Services will offer discounted adoption fees on Saturday, October 23, and Sunday, October 24 during our ‘Fall in Love’ adoption event to encourage pet adoptions. Adoption fees for dogs will be $51 (not including license) and $75 for puppies. The adoption fees for cats and kittens will be waived thanks to a generous grant from the ASPCA. 

Throughout October, LA Animal Services is also joining Subaru and its retailers to celebrate the Subaru Loves Pets initiative geared towards helping senior dogs and dogs with disabilities get adopted. These dogs, lovingly referred to as “Underdogs,” are harder to place and need a little extra effort to find loving homes. To further show their support of the initiative, Subaru Sherman Oaks will donate $100* for every pet adopted from LA Animal Services, now through October 31.

Last week during Hispanic Heritage Month, Team Cedillo visited our women and families shelter Casa Azul that is operated by PATH. During Hispanic Heritage Month, we were reflecting on the cultural ties our Casa Azul shelter site has with LA’s Latin community. Casa Azul is unique, as it honors the Mexican heritage and influence of Frida Kahlo with her mural at the entry welcoming our unhoused neighbors to come indoors. The shelter has authentic Mexican furniture, art pieces, and bright colors that create a warm and inviting environment for residents.

Dear Friend,

My lovely wife Ruby grabbed me by the collar of my shirt and said, ‘But first you have to finish passing this bill. Get that done first, OK? Promise me.’

Ruby lost her life to breast cancer, but before she passed, she left me with those incredible words and made it clear that my first priority should be to pass legislation allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses.

I completed my mission that Ruby tasked me with —but I know my work and fight to continue to represent and take care of our people has yet to draw to an end.

I want to remind everyone that October is breast cancer awareness month. We must fight for universal healthcare, we must continue to educate and resource our communities who are most adversely impacted. We must rise and unite—to remind each other that together we are stronger, and together we must rise to uplift women and ensure we get access to the education, screening, and support all women need.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

This week, the Council voted to approve financing to support the development of affordable housing as part of the Brine project in Lincoln Heights. Council's action will allow the construction of 97 affordable housing units, including 49 supportive housing units serving formerly homeless individuals, and 23 special needs units for seniors, veterans, single-parent families and transition-age youth. 

The affordable housing will part of a mixed-use development on the site of a former pickle factory.  The new mixed-use building will contain a food hall, HomeGirl Café, and day care center to be operated by the Mexican American Opportunity Foundation on the ground floor with the 100% affordable housing above. A pediatric mental health clinic will operate out of three existing historic buildings that will be relocated within the site and renovated as part of the project.  Construction on the housing is expected to begin the fall of 2021.

The Los Angeles City Planning Commission will consider the proposed 2021-29 Housing Element which would serve as a guide for Los Angeles' housing policy and accommodate the production of nearly 500,000 new units.

City Planner Matt Glesne reported to council members on Aug. 17 that between 2009 and 2020, 15,886 units of affordable housing were produced in the city, but the distribution was uneven. Councilman Gil Cedillo's District 1 had the most produced, with 2,423, while Councilman John Lee's District 12 only produced 40.

CEDILLO DELIVERS FOR YOU

Keeping MacArthur Park Safe, Clean, and Secure

Photo Credit: Team Cedillo

MacArthur Park’s lake (South) side between Alvarado/Park View and Wilshire/ 7th St has been closed so that the City’s Department of Recreation and Parks (RAP) can complete much-needed deferred maintenance that will be consistent with Councilmember Gil Cedillo’s efforts to keep public spaces safe, clean and secure. The recreation (North) side of MacArthur Park that is not part of the repairs and maintenance will remain open. All unhoused residents in the park were successfully moved indoors by 10:50PM.

From January 2021 through October 14, 2021, The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) and People Assisting The Homeless (PATH) have moved 268 people indoors. Although challenging, we saw great work being done in this area and by 10:50PM, the remaining handful of unhoused individuals in the park have all been moved indoors.

We opened a new playground at Alvarado Terrace Park in Pico-Union and will open a new playground in MacArthur Park on Monday.

Councilmember Cedillo Hails Housing Bill Signed by Governor Newsom

Councilmember Cedillo thanks Governor Gavin Newsom for signing his California Comeback Plan, including SB 8, SB 9, and SB 10. The plan will lead to over 84,000 new housing units and exits from homelessness, including this week’s announcement of $1.75 billion in affordable housing funding for the new California Housing Accelerator.

SB 8 extends the Housing Crisis Act of 2019 to jumpstart more housing production. Gov. Newsom Signs SB 8, Extending the Housing Crisis Act | Senator Nancy Skinner (ca.gov)

SB 9 gives homeowners additional tools to add critically needed new housing and help ease California’s housing shortage. Bill Text - SB-9 Housing development: approvals. (ca.gov)

SB 10 establishes a voluntary, streamlined process for cities to zone for multi-unit housing -- making it easier and faster to construct housing. Bill Text - SB-10 Planning and zoning: housing development: density. (ca.gov)

“We must now act and act affirmatively and build our toolbox so that we can take the actions necessary to build housing,” Cedillo said. “At the end of the day, the prospect of not disturbing or disrupting these communities, not challenging these communities who want to maintain the apartheid that exists in the city is simply an argument for the status quo.”

YOUR PET CORNER

Make Sure Your Furry Four-Legged Friends Are Part Of Your Family Emergency Plan

Photo Credit: LA Animal Services

September is National Emergency Preparedness Month, and LA Animal Services wants to make sure your furry four-legged friends are part of your family emergency plan. Here’s a checklist to create a family emergency preparedness plan.

Plan where you and your pet will stay in case you need to evacuate your home.  

Prepare an emergency kit. Put together a bag of emergency supplies for your pet, such as food and water for several days, treats, medications, toys, and blankets. Make sure that perishable items are replaced every few months.

Create copies of important documents for your animal such as vaccination records, microchip information, photos of your pet, your contact information, friends/relatives contact information, notes on feeding, medication, and behavior. Keep a copy off-site with a friend or family member in digital storage, and tape a copy to a portable kennel.

Make sure you have the proper equipment for pets to ride in the car (carriers, harnesses, pet seat belts, etc.).

Have your entire family, including your furry family members, practice evacuating so everyone knows what to take, where to find the pets, and where to meet.

  • Programa de asistencia de emergencia para rentas abre parte 2

  • Censo incompleto en distritos del Este de Los Ángeles

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

El Concilio aprobó la moción de financiar a Homeboy Industries para lanzar un Programa de Comidas para Personas Mayores en el Distrito 1; Homeboy podrá distribuir 25,000 comidas a adultos mayores a la semana.

Esta semana se abrió la Parte 2 del Programa de Asistencia de Emergencia para Rentas. Si eres un inquilino, aprovecha este apoyo vital.

Me preocupa la respuesta débil al Censo 2020, que refleja la disminución de 6,022 en la población del Distrito 1. Esto resulta increíble tomando en cuenta el hacinamiento en algunas partes del distrito. Creo que la campaña del ex presidente para que el estatus migratorio fuera parte de la encuesta hizo que los habitantes temieran ser deportados si participaban en el Censo.

Por otra parte, tu participación en las audiencias de redistribución de distritos es crucial para diseñar el Distrito 1, particularmente porque tenemos que ganar terreno.

El Concilio aprobó una moción presupuestaria vital muy significativa para mí. Como quedó escrito en la agenda, el Concilio aprobó la recomendación que ordena al Director Administrativo que busque fondos de $2 millones para un proyecto de Homeboy Industries para un programa de comidas para personas mayores en el Distrito 1. Para mí, significa mucho más. Es un proyecto que construye un puente entre los jóvenes de Homeboy Industries y nuestros adultos mayores en torno a un elemento que salva vidas: la comida.

Espero que más proyectos como este se realicen en nuestras diferentes comunidades y proporcionen las mejores comidas para personas mayores en la ciudad.

Censo informa que la población está disminuyendo en el este de L.A.

Calle Figueroa en Highland Park, en donde el Censo de EE. UU. Encontró una disminución del 7% en la población, lo que alimentó la preocupación de un conteo insuficiente. | Foto: Myung J. Chun, Los Angeles Times

El Concejal Cedillo cree que es posible que hayamos sufrimos una gran falta de conteo en el Distrito 1 debido a varios factores. El estado migratorio de un habitante tuvo un impacto porque los inmigrantes temían por una deportación. La campaña de la administración Trump para cuestionar sobre el estado migratorio redujo la participación. Además, mi distrito tiene una de las concentraciones más altas de inmigrantes, con viviendas superpobladas llenas de varias generaciones de miembros de la familia. Muchos de estos residentes son trabajadores esenciales y trabajadores de la industria de servicios que a menudo están fuera de su casa. Nos enfrentamos a desafíos como estos que pueden evitar una precisión del 100% en el conteo.

Cedillo dijo que “la débil respuesta al censo se debió al impulso del ex presidente para que el estatus migratorio fuera parte de la encuesta y al temor a la deportación entre algunos de sus habitantes”.

Nanette Machado, trabajadora de Mujeres de la Tierra, logró convencer a las hermanas Vilma y Mónica Santiago para que se vacunaran.

Con el aumento de las infecciones por Covid-19, las mujeres visitan comunidades difíciles y peligrosas para aclarar dudas sobre las vacunas.

"A medida que seguimos viendo un aumento de los casos de coronavirus, en mi distrito [en una semana de 699 a 1070 y de dos muertes a seis], es más importante que nunca que las personas se vacunen, se hagan pruebas con regularidad, usen mascarilla que cubra la nariz cada vez que están fuera de su casa. Lávete las manos con frecuencia y respeta el distanciamiento social”, dijo el Concejal Cedillo.

Cedillo Weekly:

  • Homeboy Industries Funding Recommended to Launch Senior Meal Program in CD 1

  • Emergency Renter's Assistance Program Part 2 Opens

  • Census Undercount in Eastside Districts

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Dear Friend,

This week Council approved the recommendation providing funding for Homeboy Industries to launch a Senior Meal Program in CD 1. Homeboy will distribute 25,000 meals weekly to seniors.

The Emergency Renter's Assistance Program Part 2 opened this week. If you are a renter, please take advantage of this vital support.

I am upset that there was a weak response to the census, with CD 1 losing 6,022 in population. The loss of people is unbelievable given the overcrowding in parts of the district. The reason was the former president's push to make immigration status a part of the survey and deportation fears among some of my constituents.

Your participation in redistricting hearings is crucial for designing CD 1, particularly because we will be gaining territory.  Please call 213-263-5765 for more information or click here.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Council passed a vital budget motion that is near and dear to my heart.  As written on the council agenda, the Council effectively approved the recommendation directing the Chief Administrative Officer to find potential budget sources for a $2 million Homeboy Industries project for a Senior Meal Program in Council District 1.  To me, the project is symbolic of something more.  It is a project that builds a bridge between the youth at Homeboy Industries and our seniors around a life-changing and life-saving item - food.  A compassionate and quality-of-life project is transpiring at a time of humankind's worst pandemic in modern history. 

I look forward to more projects partnering our different communities, our seniors and youth, and providing the best senior meals in the city.

Census Reports Declining Population On L.A.'s Eastside, Fueling Undercount Fears

Figueroa Street in Highland Park, where the U.S. census found a 7% decline in population, fueling concerns of an undercount. | Photo Credit: Myung J. Chun, Los Angeles Times

Councilmember Cedillo believes it is possible that we also naturally suffered a vast undercount in the First District due to several factors. A resident's immigration status had a significant impact because immigrants feared deportation. The Trump administration's push for asking about immigration status put a chill on responses. Furthermore, my district has one of the highest concentrations of immigrants, with overcrowded housing filled with several generations of family members. Many of these residents are essential workers and service industry workers who are often out of their residence. We face challenges such as these that may quickly and organically prevent 100% accuracy in counting. 

"Cedillo (said) the weak response to the census was due to the former president's push to make immigration status a part of the survey and to deportation fears among some of his constituents," Census Reports Declining Population On L.A.'s Eastside, Fueling Undercount Fears,

Mujeres de la Tierra Take to The Streets to Convince People Who Have Not Been Vaccinated

Nanette Machado, a Mujeres de la Tierra worker, managed to convince sisters Vilma and Monica Santiago to be immunized.

With the increase in covid infections, women visit difficult and dangerous communities to clarify doubts about vaccines.

"As we continue to see COVID-19 cases rise, in my district [in a week from 699 to 1070 and from two deaths to six], it's more important than ever that people get vaccinated, get tested regularly, wear a mask that covers their nose whenever they're out of their house. Wash your hands frequently and respect social distancing," said Councilman Gil Cedillo.

This week, Team Cedillo said goodbye and thank you to Jensey Henriquez, LA Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), who has been an integral part of our efforts to help people experiencing homelessness in CD1. As an outreach worker with the LAHSA CD1 Roadmap Team, Jensey was working across CD1 focused on helping our unhoused neighbors living within 500 feet of freeways. Her dedication and spirit will be missed. We wish her success as she enters her Masters of Social Work Program at USC and knows we will continue to see her make a difference in Los Angeles.

Over the past several months, Team Cedillo has been working with residents living around Debs Park and Elysian Park together with LAFD, LAPD, and Recreation and Parks to help educate the public and prevent fires in these areas. The Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone (or "Zone") was first established in the City of Los Angeles in 1999 and replaced the older "Mountain Fire District" and "Buffer Zone." The "Zone" was carefully determined according to California State Law. The Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone comprises most of the hilly and mountainous regions of the City of Los Angeles. The first 20 signs were installed with ten at each park at the most critical locations, while more areas get identified for signs to be installed.

Amigos y amigas:

Seguimos registrando un aumento de los casos de COVID-19 en el Distrito 1. En la semana reciente los casos aumentaron de 699 a 1,070 y el número de decesos de dos a seis. Es más importante que nunca que te vacunes, te hagas la prueba con regularidad, uses mascarilla que te cubra la nariz cada vez que estés fuera de su casa, te laves las manos con frecuencia y mantengas tu sana distancia.

Si necesitas ayuda para ubicar un lugar de vacunación cerca de tu domicilio o un viaje gratis para vacunarte, visita LAC | DPH | Vacuna COVID-19: cómo vacunarse (lacounty.gov), también puedes contactarme en [email protected] o llamado al (213) 473-7001.

Por otra parte, me complace informarles que el Ayuntamiento aprobó la designación de Mechicano Arts Center y Centro de Arte Público como Monumentos Histórico-Culturales. Muchos de mis amigos desarrollaron su arte en estos sitios, incluidos Judithe Hernández, Richard Duardo, Bárbara Carrasco, Frank Romero y George Yepes.

Aún hay más: Prepárense para dos nuevos proyectos de viviendas 100% asequibles. Berendo Sage tendrá 42 unidades y Mariposa Lily tendrá 41. Estoy comprometido a crear más viviendas asequibles en el Distrito 1, además de las 2,423 construidas desde que estoy en el cargo.

Por último, me complació mucho asociarme con Pico-Union Project para regalar 250 carritos para el mandado. Esta fue una idea de Terri Boggan, una voluntaria del Pico-Union Project que se dio cuenta de que los vecinos necesitaban estos carritos para poder llevar muchos más productos a casa.

Por favor cuídate.

Buscando oportunidades de vivienda asequible en NELA

Esta semana, el Concilio aprobó una moción que presenté pidiendo al personal de la Ciudad que explorara la posible adquisición de las instalaciones de la antigua Corte del Condado de Los Ángeles ubicadas en el 1150 N. San Fernando Road, con el objetivo de convertirlas en viviendas asequibles y/o de apoyo para personas sin hogar. Durante muchos años, el Condado de L.A. administró el edificio, pero al cerrar la corte ha estado vacío. Mi oficina inició pláticas con su propietario, el Consejo Judicial del Estado. La crisis de vivienda de la Ciudad es severa y debemos ser creativos para solucionarla. Aquí está la Moción del Concilio.

Dear Friend,

This week we continue to see COVID-19 cases rise in CD 1. In the last week cases rose from 699 to 10,070 and deaths from two to six. It is now more important than ever that you get vaccinated, get tested regularly, wear a mask covering your nose whenever you are out of your home, wash your hands frequently , and social distance. If you need help locating a vaccination site close to you or a free ride to a vaccination site, please contact me at [email protected] or 213-473-7001.

The City Council voted to designate Mechicano Arts Center and Centro de Arte Publico as Historic-Cultural Monuments.  Many of my friends practiced their art at these sites including  Judithe Hernández, Richard Duardo, Barbara Carrasco, Frank Romero, and George Yepes.

We have two new 100% affordable housing projects under construction. Berendo Sage will have 42 brand-new units, and Mariposa Lily  41 units. I am committed to bringing more affordable housing to CD 1 above and beyond the 2,423 that have been built since I’ve been in office.

At lastly, I was so pleased to partner with the Pico Union Project to give away 250 grocery carts. The giveaway was the brainchild of Terri Boggan, a Pico Union Project volunteer who realized that neighbors could take home much more produce if they had carts.

Be safe.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

Pursuing Affordable Housing Opportunities in Northeast Los Angeles

This week, the City Council approved a motion that I sponsored asking city staff to explore the potential acquisition of the former courthouse facility located at 1150 N. San Fernando Road and to study the feasibility of converting it into affordable and/or supportive housing serving formerly homeless individuals.  For many years, the County of Los Angeles operated the building as a courthouse, but it has since stood vacant.  My office initiated discussions with the State Judicial Council which owns the property.  The City’s housing crisis is severe, and we need to think creatively.  Here is the Council Motion.

This year's gift was the brainchild of longtime volunteer Terri Boggan who packs produce bags every week. She realized that neighbors could take home much more produce if they had carts. Councilmember Cedillo partnered with the Pico Union Project to make Terri’s idea a reality.

Amigos y Amigas:

Esta semana voté por exigir que todos los empleados de la Ciudad usen mascarilla. Quise asegurarme de que el público sepa que aquellos que están haciendo pruebas, vacunando y atendiéndolos, son los primeros en mantenerse a salvo cuando prestan atención y ayuda. También apoye la decisión del condado de Los Ángeles de exigir mascarillas en todos los eventos masivos.

Conoce y aprovecha los servicios de centros de estudios y atención contra el cáncer. El Centro “Ruby Cedillo”, que honra el nombre de mi difunta esposa, se encuentra en Arroyo Vista Family Health Center en Highland Park. Las mamografías y los exámenes de los senos gratuitos están disponibles para quienes califiquen.

También me da gusto informarles que la Ciudad de Los Ángeles está ofreciendo $25 millones en fondos de su Programa de Recuperación de Restaurantes y Pequeñas Empresas y $12 millones en un Programa de Asistencia de Alquiler para Pequeñas Empresas. Estos fondos ayudarán a los restaurantes y otras industrias vulnerables que necesitan asistencia para recuperarse de la recesión económica.

Por otra parte, sé que entre nosotros hay muchos amigos de los perros en el Distrito 1. Este 26 de agosto, celebraremos juntos el Día Internacional del Perro. Es un día para dar un poco más de amor y cuidado extra a nuestros amigos peludos.

Mientras tanto, ¡ponte a salvo!

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

Ayuntamiento vota para exigir la vacuna COVID-19 a todos los empleados de la Ciudad

Los empleados de la ciudad de Los Ángeles deberán estar completamente vacunados contra el COVID-19 a principios de octubre, a menos que se obtengan una exención por razones médicas o religiosas, según una nueva ordenanza aprobada el miércoles por el Concilio.

Esta ordenanza permitirá que algunas personas con enfermedades médicas o creencias religiosas reales que les impiden recibir las vacunas, busquen una exención, pero tendrán que someterse a pruebas periódicas. No se permitirá a los empleados municipales optar por la prueba para evitar vacunarse por otras razones. El objetivo de la Ciudad con esta ordenanza es tener una fuerza laboral vacunada.

Aquí es donde puedes vacunarse

La vacuna sigue siendo gratuita y está disponible para cualquier persona de 12 años o más sin seguro o sin importar su estado migratorio.

Puestos de Vacunación

Con más de 800 puestos de vacunación en todo el condado de Los Ángeles, obtener la vacuna nunca ha sido tan fácil. Puedes visitar los puestos de drive-thru (sin bajar de tu auto), caminando en clínicas locales y en puestos de vacunación cercano de ti. También puedes vacunarte durante tu viaje en las estaciones LA Metro. El centro de llamadas del condado de Los Ángeles también puede ayudarte a encontrar lugares de vacunación en tu área y ayudarte para hacer una cita. Puedes llamar al (833) 540-0473 entre las 8 am y las 8:30 pm todos los días. Trae un comprobante de edad al puestos o clínica de vacunación. Para los jóvenes de 12 y 17 años, tienen que llenar este formulario.

PRUEBAS GRATIS DE COVID-19

Muchos puestos de vacunación también ofrecen pruebas gratis de COVID-19. Es muy recomendable que te hagas la prueba si tienes síntomas de COVID-19, incluso si estás completamente vacunado, y has estado en contacto cercano con alguien que haya dado positivo en la prueba de COVID-19. Puedes encontrar una lista de sitios de prueba en Coronavirus.LACity.org/Testing.

VACUNAS A DOMICILIO Y TRANSPORTE GRATIS PARA VACUNARTE

Si están impedido de salir de tu hogar, puedes solicitar una vacuna a domicilio. También puedes solicitar un viaje gratis a través de Uber o Lyft. Para más información sobre las vacunas a domicilio y los viajes gratuitos, comunícate con el Centro de llamadas del condado de Los Ángeles al (833) 540-0473 o completa este formulario en línea.

LEGISLANDO PARA TI

Esta semana, el Concilio aprobó uno de los primeros mandatos de vacunación COVID-19 para los empleados de la Ciudad.

Estamos en uno de los momentos más cruciales en la historia del país, principalmente lidiando con esta devastadora y peligrosa pandemia.

A pesar de todos los debates entre la decisión personal y la extralimitación del gobierno, ahora es el momento más que nunca en que debemos unimos contra un enemigo común: El virus del COVID-19.

Luchar contra el virus significa eliminarlo y evitar que cobre más vidas.

La ciencia ha demostrado que las vacunas nos protegen del virus y evitan que se mute.

Las vacunas nos permite producir una inmunidad colectiva y, al igual que otras infecciones mortales como la poliomielitis, la viruela y la influenza, recibir una dosis impedirá que el coronavirus cause mas muertes.

La vacuna obligatoria para nuestros empleados de la Ciudad, nuestros héroes durante nuestra lucha contra la pandemia es nuestra forma de unirnos contra un enemigo común y, al hacerlo, nos acercamos a otra victoria contra las pandemias del mundo.

-Concejal Gil Cedillo

Concilio de Los Ángeles aprueba mandato de vacunación para trabajadores de la Ciudad | MyNewsLA.com

Declaraciones de Cedillo en el debate del Concilio para exigir vacuna a los empleados de la Ciudad

"Estamos aquí para ser servidores públicos y atender a la comunidad. Hemos hecho un trabajo extraordinario, aunque no tenemos un departamento de salud. No tenemos una enfermera ni un médico en la nómina, pero hemos vacunado a más personas que nadie (y) realizamos pruebas a más personas que nadie. Sin embargo, debemos asegurarnos de que el público sepa que quienes están realizando pruebas, vacunando y atendiendo, estarán seguros cuando vengan a verlos. Como servidores públicos, nuestro deber es primero con el público. Es nuestra responsabilidad vacunarnos para mantener seguras a nuestras comunidades, familias y a nuestros seres queridos".

La nominación de Monumento Histórico-Cultural para Mechicano Art Center, ubicado en 5337-5341 North Figueroa Street y 110 North Avenue 54 y el Centro de Arte Público, ubicado en 5605-5607 North Figueroa Street, está programada para ser presentada ante el Ayuntamiento este Martes 24 de agosto.

Los dos edificios, fueron los inmuebles más influyentes del condado de Los Ángeles durante el movimiento artístico latino en las décadas de 1960 y 1970. Desempeñaron un papel fundamental al permitir que los artistas latinos se expresaran y exhibieran su trabajo creativo en un ambiente seguro y agradable. Tenemos que preservar estos centros históricos para garantizar que las historias y el trabajo de estos artistas permanezcan vivos para las futuras generaciones de angelinos. Algunos artistas exponentes en Mechicano Art Center y / o Centro de Arte Público incluyen a Richard Duardo, Carlos Almaraz, Leo Limón, Harry Gamboa, John Valadez y Roberto Chávez.

Dear Friend,

This week I voted to require all City employees to wear a mask. We must make sure that the public knows that those who are testing, vaccinating, and responding, that your first responders are going to be safe when they come to your aid. I also support the decision by LA County to require masks at all mega-events.

Please take advantage of the Ruby Cedillo Breast Cancer and Imaging Center. The Center, named after my late wife, Ruby, is at the Arroyo Vista Family Health Center in Highland Park. Free mammograms and Breast Exams are available for those who qualify.

I am also happy to share that the City offers $25M in grants from their Restaurant and Small Business Recovery Program and $12M in a Small Business Rental Assistance Program. The funds will help restaurants and other vulnerable industries needing assistance in recovering from the economic downturn.

In closing, I know we have many dog lovers in CD 1. I will join you in celebrating International Dog Day on August 26. It is a day to shower some extra love and care for our furry friends.

Be Safe!

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

City Council Votes to Require COVID-19 Vaccine For City Employees!

Los Angeles city employees will have to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by early October, unless they are granted an exemption for medical or religious reasons, under a new ordinance approved Wednesday by the City Council.

The law would permit people with medical conditions or sincerely held religious beliefs that prevent them from getting the shots to seek an exemption, requiring regular testing for such employees. However, it would not allow municipal employees to opt for testing if they wish to avoid getting vaccinated for other reasons. The proposal states that the City's goal is to have a vaccinated workforce.

Here is Where You Can Get Vaccinated

The vaccine remains free and available to anyone age 12 and older without insurance or immigration status proof.

VACCINATION SITES

With more than 800 vaccination sites across Los Angeles County, getting the vaccine has never been easier. You can visit drive-thru, walk-up, and pop-up sites near you — or get vaccinated during your commute at LA Metro transit stations. Los Angeles County's Call Center can also help you find vaccination sites in your area and help you register ahead of your visit. You can call (833) 540-0473 between 8 a.m. and 8:30 p.m. daily. Remember to bring proof of age to the site and if you are between 12 and 17 years oldbring this form.

FREE COVID-19 TESTING

Many vaccination sites are also offering free COVID-19 testing. We highly recommend that you get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms — even if you are fully vaccinated — and have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. You can find a list of testing sites at Coronavirus.LACity.org/Testing.

IN-HOME VACCINATIONS & FREE RIDES

If you are homebound, you can request an in-home vaccination. You can also request a free ride through Uber or Lyft. For more information about in-home vaccinations and free rides, contact Los Angeles County's Call Center at (833) 540-0473 or fill out an online form.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

This week, Council passed one of the first-ever COVID-19 vaccination mandates for City employees.  We are in one of the most pivotal times in our nation's history, mainly dealing with the most devastating and dangerous pandemic the world has ever seen.  Notwithstanding all the debates about personal choice and government overreach, now is the time more than ever that we all unite and not be divided against one common enemy, the COVID 19 virus.  To unite against the virus is to remove it from existence and stop it from claiming more lives.  Science has shown that vaccinations protect us from the virus and prevent the virus from mutating.  Increased vaccinations allow us to achieve herd immunity and, much like previous deadly infections, have stopped polio, smallpox, and influenza from causing deaths.  Mandated vaccinations for our valued City employees who themselves have emerged as heroes during our fight against the pandemic is our way of uniting against one common enemy and, in doing so, assures us of another victory against the pandemics of the world.

-Councilmember Gil Cedillo

Councilmember Cedillo's Remarks During Council Debate To Require City Employees To Be Vaccinated

"We are here to be servant leaders and serve the public. We have done an extraordinary job even though we do not have a health department. We do not have a nurse or doctor on the payroll. Yet, we vaccinated more people than anybody (and) we tested more people than anybody. Yet we must make sure that the public knows that those who are testing, vaccinating, and responding, that your first responders are going to be safe when they come to see you. As public servants and first responders, our duty is first to the public. It is our responsibility to get vaccinated to keep our communities, families, and loved ones safe."

I am ecstatic that 1,550,985 million undocumented immigrants obtained their driver's licenses between January 1, 2015, and May 2021. I ran for office for the opportunity to serve and advocate for vulnerable communities and delivered for them with the passage of AB 60, granting undocumented immigrants the right to apply for a driver's license. I tried nine times since 1998 to get bills passed in the California State Legislature that would allow undocumented.

These are two of Los Angeles County’s most influential buildings during the Latino arts movement in the 1960s and 1970s. They played a pivotal role in allowing Latino artists to express themselves and showcase their creative work in a welcoming environment. There is a dire need to preserve these historic centers to ensure the stories and work of these artists stay alive for future generations of Angelenos. Some artists exhibited at Mechicano Art Center and/or Centro de Arte Publico include Richard Duardo, Carlos Almaraz, Leo Limon, Harry Gamboa, John Valadez, and Roberto Chavez.

Councilmember Cedillo Executive Producer of ARENA: A House Music-al

ARENA is a musical play based on the house music of the 1990s at the legendary ARENA Nightclub in Hollywood. It follows a group of friends during a turbulent time when HIV/AIDS infections rose 130% among LGBTQ Latinos. ARENA is the story of Lucio Torrez, a 21-year-old Chicano man with a dynamic voice who is the music minister director at the Pentecostal Church of East L.A., where his father is the pastor. He has a closeted relationship with the church guitar player and his parents find out. They demand he attend Exist in Truth (EXIT), a gay conversion group, to keep his ministry and continue being part of their family or lose it all. Lucio attends EXIT and realizes that his truth is what is most important.

ARENA features over 15-20 original music compositions and great dancing, a signature of a TNH Production! The creative team that brought In The Heights, Disney’s Aladdin Dual  Language Edition, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast – The Broadway Musical and Sister Act to Boyle Heights brings you another high energy, poignant story that will bring you to your feet, touch your heart and inspire you to sing as you leave the theater.

Amigos y amigas:

Esta semana tuvimos el peor aumento de nuevas infecciones desde febrero, con cerca de 700 nuevos casos de Covid-19. Por favor, sigue usando mascarilla, mantén la sana distancia, lávate las manos con regularidad, vacúnate si aun no lo haz hecho y realízate una prueba de coronavirus.

Esta semana estaré votando a favor de las nominaciones de Monumento Histórico-Cultural del Centro de Arte Mechicano y el Centro de Arte Público ante el Comité de Planificación y Uso de la Tierra (PLUM). Estos son dos de los edificios que fueron más influyentes durante el movimiento artístico latino en las décadas de 1960 y 1970 y jugaron un papel fundamental al permitir que los artistas latinos se expresaran y exhibieran su trabajo creativo en un ambiente seguros.

Por otra parte, los invito a participar en el Programa para Compradores de Casa por Primera Vez, un excelente programa ofrecido por la Ciudad que ayuda a los compradores de vivienda por primera vez de ingresos a comprar sus viviendas en Los Ángeles.

Y mientras la pandemia de Covid-19 continúa, la Ciudad ha extendido “L.A. Al Fresco” hasta fines del 2021. Este programa para restaurantes con servicio al aire libre, ofrece espacios saludables que reciben y atienden a los clientes en áreas de comedor extendidas a estacionamiento, calles bloqueadas y áreas privadas adyacentes vacías.

Director de respuesta a crisis del alcalde afirma que la vacuna COVID-19 "literalmente me salvó la vida"

Foto: Joe Avalos

Joe Avalos, oficial de reserva de LAPD y director del Equipo de Respuesta a Crisis del Alcalde Eric Garcetti, admite que la vacuna de Pfizer le salvó la vida.  

Cuando Joe Avalos sintió una tos seca hace un par de semanas, pensó que podrían ser sus alergias o el polvo de una nueva construcción en su vecindario. El oficial de reserva del Departamento de Policía de Los Ángeles y director del Equipo de Respuesta a Crisis del Alcalde Eric Garcetti dijo que no creía que fuera el COVID-19. Ya se había vacunado con la dosis Pfizer en diciembre, y siempre mantuvo el distanciamiento social y el uso de su mascarilla.

"Yo estaba incrédulo, no hay manera", dijo Avalos. Pero estaba equivocado. Tenía COVID-19, de la variante Delta altamente contagiosa, dijo. Y casi lo mata. Lo que lo salvó, dijeron sus médicos, fue el hecho de que estaba vacunado, razón por la cual ahora está invitando a todos, incluidos sus compañeros oficiales de LAPD, a "pensar dos veces" antes de rechazar un pinchazo.

Por Kevin Rector, Los Ángeles Times, 10 de agosto de 2021.

COVID-19 esta semana en el Distrito 1

Se registraron casi 700 casos de Covid-19 la semana pasada, el peor aumento semanal de nuevas infecciones desde el 12 de febrero. Esto es casi el doble de la semana anterior. No hubo fallecimientos esta semana, y en la anterior hubo tres. Por favor cuídate y cuida a tu familia.

693 nuevos casos para un total de 54,878

3 muertos para mantener un total de 1,357

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO

El Concilió aprobó las acciones del Concejal Kevin De León hacia una meta de la ciudad de 25,000 unidades de vivienda asequible y mi enmienda para distribuirlas equitativamente. Es esencial que los residentes que buscan viviendas asequibles no sean limitados a unos pocos distritos del Concilio; el Distrito 1 representa uno de los mayores números de unidades de vivienda asequibles permitidas, pero esto debe ser en todos los distritos. Es hora de que hagamos que todos nuestros vecindarios se conviertan en comunidades diversas en todas las categorías posibles. La diversidad refleja la equidad. Esa es la Ciudad de Los Ángeles por la que todos luchamos.

Concejal Gil Cedillo, productor ejecutivo de “ARENA: A House Music-al”

ARENA es una obra musical basada en el ritmo house de la década de 1990 y enmarcada en el legendario club nocturno ARENA de Hollywood. Cuenta la historia de un grupo de amigos durante una época turbulenta en la que los contagios por VIH / SIDA aumentaron un 130% entre los latinos LGBTQ. ARENA es la historia de Lucio Torrez, un joven chicano de 21 años con una voz excepcional y director del ministerio de música en la Iglesia Pentecostal de East L.A., donde su padre es el pastor. Lucio tiene una relación íntima con el guitarrista de la iglesia y sus padres se enteran. Exigen que asista a Exist in Truth (EXIT), un grupo de conversión gay, para mantener su ministerio y seguir siendo parte de su familia o perderlo todo. Lucio asiste a EXIT y se da cuenta de que su verdad es lo más importante.

ARENA presenta más de 15 composiciones musicales originales y una gran coreografía, en una producción de TNH. El equipo creativo que trajo a Boyle Heights  obras como In The Heights, Disney's Aladdin Dual Language Edition, Disney's Beauty and the Beast - The Broadway Musical y Sister Act, ahora te presenta esta historia conmovedora y de mucha energía que te tocará el corazón, te pondrá de pie y saldrás cantando del teatro.

Sinopsis de ARENA:

Este musical inicia en la víspera de Año Nuevo de 2015 a 2016, la última noche en que ARENA y Circus Disco estuvieron abiertos. El personaje principal Lucio Torrez nos lleva a la década de 1990 mientras seguimos su "viaje de salir del closet" y reacciones de amistades, lecciones y momentos que impactaron su vida y a la de muchos. Basada en el género House Music de la época y ambientada en Los Ángeles, esta historia exuberante y apasionada muestra cómo una comunidad lidió con los problemas de la vida, el amor, la identidad, la orientación y el racismo y cómo un espacio increíble, fantástico y valiente, unió a las personas para celebrar sus diferencias, les dio el coraje para perseguir sus sueños y vivir en su ser más auténtico a través de la música.

DESCRIPCIÓN DE PERSONAJES:

LUCIO TORREZ:

Edad: De 18 a 26 años, masculino – Tenor principal, no requiere baile.

Criado en la iglesia apostólica, su padre es pastor. Tiene una voz melódica, es el Ministro de Música de la iglesia y tiene una relación secreta con el guitarrista de la iglesia Ricky Soto, de quien está enamorado. Su padre le ha dado el ultimátum de ir a EXIT, un grupo de conversión gay si quiere seguir en el ministerio de música, mantener su lugar en su familia y en la iglesia. Lucio siempre ha sabido que es gay, pero ¿cómo puede encontrar la manera de ser quien es y, lo que es más importante, expresar su verdadera voz?

MARTIN:

Edad: De 20 a 35 años, masculino – Tenor, se requiere algo de baile.

Ha sido drag desde que tenía 17 años y es un personaje fuerte con mucha experiencia de vida pero sin educación formal. Es un artista por derecho propio y la creatividad le resulta natural. Isleño del Pacífico adoptado por una familia mexicana, creció en Boyle Heights y ha luchado duro para mantener su lugar como un hombre abiertamente gay que no se disculpa por quién es. La vida no ha sido fácil para él y, a veces, esconde sus miedos y demonios con las drogas de fácil acceso para una figura de la vida nocturna. Es la diva definitiva con un corazón para los demás.

ENSAMBLE (Hombres): Todas las etnias, cantantes / actores / bailarines experimentados.

Mayor’s Crisis Response Director Says COVID-19 Vaccination ‘Literally Saved My Life’

Photo Credit: Joe Avalos

Joe Avalos, a reserve LAPD officer, and director of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Crisis Response Team, credits the Pfizer vaccination with saving his life.

“When Joe Avalos developed a dry cough a couple of weeks ago, he thought it must be his allergies acting up, or all the dust from the new development in his neighborhood. The reserve Los Angeles Police Department officer and director of Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Crisis Response Team did not think it was COVID-19, he said. After all, he’d received the Pfizer vaccination in December, and he was careful with social distancing and wearing his mask. “I was like, there’s no way,” Avalos said. But he was wrong. He did have COVID-19, from a breakthrough case of the highly contagious Delta variant, he said. And it almost killed him. What saved him, his doctors said, was the fact that he was vaccinated — which is why he’s now urging others, including fellow LAPD officers, to “think twice” before they refuse the jab.", By Kevin Rector, Los Angeles Times, August 10, 2021.

Councilmember Cedillo Executive Producer of ARENA: A House Music-al

ARENA is a musical play based on the house music of the 1990s at the legendary ARENA Nightclub in Hollywood. It follows a group of friends during a turbulent time when HIV/AIDS infections rose 130% among LGBTQ Latinos. ARENA is the story of Lucio Torrez, a 21-year-old Chicano man with a dynamic voice who is the music minister director at the Pentecostal Church of East L.A., where his father is the pastor. He has a closeted relationship with the church guitar player and his parents find out. They demand he attend Exist in Truth (EXIT), a gay conversion group, to keep his ministry and continue being part of their family or lose it all.

Lucio asiste a EXIT y se da cuenta de que su verdad es lo más importante.

ARENA presenta más de 15 composiciones musicales originales y una gran coreografía, en una producción de TNH. El equipo creativo que trajo a Boyle Heights  obras como In The Heights, Disney's Aladdin Dual Language Edition, Disney's Beauty and the Beast - The Broadway Musical y Sister Act, ahora te presenta esta historia conmovedora y de mucha energía que te tocará el corazón, te pondrá de pie y saldrás cantando del teatro.

ARENA is a musical play based on the house music of the 1990s at the legendary ARENA Nightclub in Hollywood. It follows a group of friends during a turbulent time when HIV/AIDS infections rose 130% among LGBTQ Latinos. ARENA is the story of Lucio Torrez, a 21-year-old Chicano man with a dynamic voice who is the music minister director at the Pentecostal Church of East L.A., where his father is the pastor. He has a closeted relationship with the church guitar player and his parents find out. They demand he attend Exist in Truth (EXIT), a gay conversion group, to keep his ministry and continue being part of their family or lose it all. Lucio attends EXIT and realizes that his truth is what is most important.

ARENA features over 15-20 original music compositions and great dancing, a signature of a TNH Production! The creative team that brought In The Heights, Disney’s Aladdin Dual  Language Edition, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast – The Broadway Musical and Sister Act to Boyle Heights brings you another high energy, poignant story that will bring you to your feet, touch your heart and inspire you to sing as you leave the theater.

International Cat Day

On International Cat Day, what better way to celebrate than by adopting or fostering a feline friend or a canine companion? August 8th is International Cat Day, a day to recognize these independent, curious, and adventurous pets who have the power to heal by themselves — at least most of the time. To encourage pet adoptions, LA Animal Services will be offering discounted adoption fees on Saturday, August 7th, and Sunday, August 8th. Adoption fees for dogs will be $51 (not including license) and $75 for puppies. The adoption fees for cats and kittens will be waived thanks to a generous grant from the ASPCA.

Visit laanimalservices.com/adopt and identify an animal you would like to adopt.

Call 888-452-7381 with the Animal ID number or A# (example: A1234567).

Amigos y amigas:

La variante Delta del COVID-19 sigue en aumento con 676 nuevos casos registrados durante la semana pasada, lo que significa más del 43% con respecto a la semana anterior.

Dada la gravedad de este aumento repentino, estoy apoyando que se requiera a los empleados de la Ciudad que muestren la prueba de que están vacunados contra el COVID-19. Es importante generar confianza en la ciudadanía y la seguridad en que los trabajadores de la ciudad que brindan sus servicios están vacunados. Hay dos puestos de vacunación en el Distrito 1: Glassell Park Recreation Center y en el Consulado de México. Por favor, vacúnate. Cuídate y cuida a tu familia.

Estoy muy satisfecho de los trabajos en conjunto de los departamentos de la Ciudad y del Estado para completar el nuevo “Ord and Yale Park” en Chinatown. Lo que comenzó como una idea para ayudar a nuestros adultos mayores a movilizarse entre Hill Street y sus hogares y arreglar un área en ruinas, se ha convertido en un hermoso paisaje urbano.

Mi voto de esta semana en el Concilio fue para lograr el cumplimiento de los derechos de paso público seguro y limpio que están completamente obstruidos. No hacer nada no conviene a nadie. Las acciones que tomó el Concilio esta semana son un progreso y no se deben retrasar. Nuestro objetivo es ofrecer servicios a todas las personas que lo necesite antes y durante los esfuerzos para limpiar y despejar el derecho de paso público, no poner una sanción por delito menor por incumplimiento intencional.

Mi voto para apoyar estas acciones fue impulsada por los logros de mi distrito sobre la construcción de las viviendas de apoyo más permanentes, en lo cual Distrito 1 es el número 1; la única oficina del Concilio que implementa diariamente lavandería móvil y duchas móviles, la operación de cuatro sitios clave de Project Roomkey, dos sitios del programa de estacionamiento seguro, dos sitios de refugio provisionales y un sitio de Homekey, es la oficina del Distrito 1.

Sigo trabajando con personas que apoyan o se oponen a mis acciones, para lograr el cumplimiento del bien común, lo cual es un trabajo que debemos hacer juntos para el progreso de todos.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

EVENTOS CON EL CEDILLO

Concejal inauguró parque público en Ord y Yale en Chinatown

Fotos: Team Cedillo and Steve Weingarten

El Concejal Gil Cedillo inauguró el fabuloso “Ord and Yale Park” en Chinatown. Estuvo acompañado por personalidades que colaboraron en la realización de este parque, incluyendo a la senadora María Elena Durazo, asambleísta Wendy Carrillo y funcionarios del Departamento de Ingeniería, del Departamento de Parques y Recreación, Biblioteca Pública, Parques del Estado de California y, los más importantes, miembros de la comunidad de Chinatown.

Lo que alguna vez fue una idea para que nuestros adultos mayores pudieran movilizarse entre Hill Street y sus hogares, ahora es una realidad. La expansión del Centro de Recreación Alpina y la reparación de un área en ruinas, se convirtió en lo que vemos hoy: Un armonioso entorno urbano, a unos pasos del centro cívico y cultural de la ciudad; este parque, con una dimensión de media acre, pronto se convertirá en un destino de esparcimiento para muchos.

Disfruta y comparte el reportaje del Canal 35 sobre la gran inauguración de la expansión de “Ord and Yale Park”.

Camarógrafo: Frank Aguilera, Audio: Martín Martínez, Editor: Kevin King

Diseñado en tres diferentes niveles, el corredor “Dragon Walk” conecta a tres terrazas del parque.

La Plaza Lotus, se encuentra en la parte más baja y está diseñada para practicar Tai Chi, y un lugar de descanso para quienes visitan la biblioteca al final de la calle.

El segundo nivel tiene un jardín de bambú, un área en donde los abuelos pueden reunirse alrededor de mesas de ajedrez mientras sus nietos juegan en un día de verano; está muy cerca de la Primaria Castelar.

El tercer nivel es el “Heavenly Garden”, diseñado como mirador y una torre de luz; es un lugar tranquilo en donde inicia la calle Hill Place.

Este espacio verde urbano fue creado para proporcionar un lugar de conexión social y actividad física, así como para crear un camino peatonal seguro y atractivo.

El concejal Gil Cedillo dijo el lunes que se debería exigir la vacuna COVID-19 para los empleados de la Ciudad. Cuestionó: "¿Cómo se genera la confianza del público si no se asegura que las personas que brindan los servicios estén vacunadas?" Un número creciente de políticos de Los Ángeles quiere exigir que los trabajadores de la ciudad se vacunen a medida que aumenta el número de infecciones, un paso ya anunciado en Nueva York, San Francisco y Pasadena.

Concejal Gil Cedillo, productor ejecutivo de “ARENA: A House Music-al”

ARENA es una obra musical basada en el ritmo house de la década de 1990 y enmarcada en el legendario club nocturno ARENA de Hollywood. Cuenta la historia de un grupo de amigos durante una época turbulenta en la que los contagios por VIH / SIDA aumentaron un 130% entre los latinos LGBTQ. ARENA es la historia de Lucio Torrez, un joven chicano de 21 años con una voz excepcional y director del ministerio de música en la Iglesia Pentecostal de East L.A., donde su padre es el pastor. Lucio tiene una relación íntima con el guitarrista de la iglesia y sus padres se enteran. Exigen que asista a Exist in Truth (EXIT), un grupo de conversión gay, para mantener su ministerio y seguir siendo parte de su familia o perderlo todo. Lucio asiste a EXIT y se da cuenta de que su verdad es lo más importante.

ARENA presenta más de 15 composiciones musicales originales y una gran coreografía, en una producción de TNH. El equipo creativo que trajo a Boyle Heights  obras como In The Heights, Disney's Aladdin Dual Language Edition, Disney's Beauty and the Beast - The Broadway Musical y Sister Act, ahora te presenta esta historia conmovedora y de mucha energía que te tocará el corazón, te pondrá de pie y saldrás cantando del teatro.

Dear Friend,

The Delta surge has continued with a jaw-dropping 676 new cases this past week, a 43% increase over the previous week. Given the severity of the surge, I support requiring city employees to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination in order to keep their jobs. It is important to engender confidence from the public who interface with city workers providing services to you. We have three vaccination sites in CD 1 at Glassell Park Recreation Center, Lincoln Park, and the Mexican Consulate. Get vaccinated. Stay safe.

I am so proud of the departments of the City and State who collaborated to complete the beautiful new Ord and Yale Park in Chinatown. What was once a thought to find a more convenient way to help our seniors get between Hill Street to their homes and fixing a blighted area developed into what is now there today.

My vote this week in council led with compassion to achieve compliance for safe and clean public right of ways that are completely obstructed. To do nothing is not compassionate for anyone. The actions the City Council took this week are progress and could not be delayed for perfection. Our actions make it our goal to offer services to anyone before and during efforts to clean and clear obstructions from the public right of way and not pursue a misdemeanor penalty for willful non-compliance rather maintain the issuance of a citation. 

The gravity of my vote to support these actions are moved by the accomplishments of my district to be leading the City with the most built permanent supportive housing, the only council office that deploys daily mobile laundry and mobile showers, the operation of four Project Room Key sites, two safe parking program sites, two interim shelter sites, and one Homekey site. While I continue to work with people who support and oppose my actions to be compassionate and achieve compliance, this is work we must do together to find a balance to make progress for all. 

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

CEDILLO ATTENDS EVENTS

Councilmember Cedillo Opens Ord and Yale Park in Chinatown

Photo Credit: Team Cedillo and Steve Weingarten

Councilmember Cedillo opened the new Ord and Yale Park in Chinatown. He was joined by the partnership that helped make the park a reality including State Senator Maria Elena Durazo, Assemblywoman Wendy Carrillo, Bureau of Engineering, Department of Recreation and Parks, Library Services, California State Parks, and most importantly the members and residents of our Chinatown community.

What was once a thought to find a more convenient way to help our seniors get between Hill Street to their homes, the idea of an expansion of the Alpine Recreation Center and fixing a blighted area developed into what is now there today. This colorful urban setting, only a stone’s throw from the city’s civic and cultural center, is now further enhanced with this vibrant neighborhood pocket park that will become a destination for many. This new half-acre park transforms a once vacant and unmaintained hillside.

Cameraman: Frank Aguilera, Audio: Martin Martinez, Editor: Kevin King

Designed into 3 different levels, the Dragon Walk pathway seamlessly connects each of the terraces.

The Lotus Plaza sits at the lowest elevation—an area envisioned to bring together our seniors to practice Tai Chi, and a place of respite to those who may have visited the library down the street.

The second level holds a bamboo garden— an area that was imagined as a multi-generational space, where grandparents can congregate around chess tables while their grandchildren who go to Castelar Elementary play on a summer day.

The third level is called the Heavenly Garden, designed with viewing windows and a lantern tower—a peaceful place that opens up to Hill Place.

This urban green space was created to provide a place of social cohesion and physical activity, as well as to create a safe and sensible pedestrian pathway between the streets above and below.

"L.A. City Councilman Gil Cedillo said Monday that COVID-19 vaccination should be required for L.A. city employees. 'How do you engender confidence from the public,' he asked, 'if you’re not assuring that the people providing services are vaccinated?' A growing number of Los Angeles politicians want to require city workers to get vaccinated against COVID-19 as infection numbers have resurged, a step already announced in New York, San Francisco, and Pasadena."

Councilmember Cedillo Executive Producer of ARENA: A House Music-al

ARENA is a musical play based on the house music of the 1990s at the legendary ARENA Nightclub in Hollywood. It follows a group of friends during a turbulent time when HIV/AIDS infections rose 130% among LGBTQ Latinos. ARENA is the story of Lucio Torrez, a 21-year-old Chicano man with a dynamic voice who is the music minister director at the Pentecostal Church of East L.A., where his father is the pastor. He has a closeted relationship with the church guitar player and his parents find out. They demand he attend Exist in Truth (EXIT), a gay conversion group, to keep his ministry and continue being part of their family or lose it all. Lucio attends EXIT and realizes that his truth is what is most important.

ARENA features over 15-20 original music compositions and great dancing, a signature of a TNH Production! The creative team that brought In The Heights, Disney’s Aladdin Dual  Language Edition, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast – The Broadway Musical and Sister Act to Boyle Heights brings you another high energy, poignant story that will bring you to your feet, touch your heart and inspire you to sing as you leave the theater.

Dear Friend,

The COVID-19 delta variant continues to surge. This week’s 472 new infections is the most we have faced since Feb. 26th, when CD1 had 510 new cases. That is a 333% increase! Amazingly, we also had ZERO deaths this week. Stay safe.

Redistricting of council districts will be completed by December 31, 2021. Redistricting is where district lines are drawn and will determine where residents can vote, whom they can vote for, and even how responsive elected officials are to your requests. Representation is power. Who represents you in City Hall can mean more affordable housing, cleaner streets, better parks, and how they respond to crises like the pandemic. Making sure your district is drawn in a way that gives you fair representation can make a big difference for you and your family. I invite you to the public hearing for CD1 regarding redistricting on Saturday, August 14th at 10 am in a virtual format. You can register here.

For the thousands of readers of Cedillo Weekly, many of you have pets. In this week’s Pet’s Corner, I share with you information from Animal Services on planning for pets if you can’t be there for them.

Have a wonderful week and be safe. Please contact me if I can be of any service at [email protected] or 213-473-7001.

Sincerely,

Gil Cedillo

The COVID-19 delta variant continues to surge. This week’s 472 new infections is the most we have faced since Feb. 26, when CD1 had 510 new cases. That is a 333% increase! Amazingly, we also had ZERO deaths this week. Stay safe.

470 Additional Cases and 53,000 Total

CORONAVIRUS VACCINE

LA County’s COVID-19 cases have increased by 20 times compared to last month when we had just 124 cases on June 21. Let’s help slow the spread. Get vaccinated & mask up indoors. 

The vaccine is the best tool you can use to protect yourself and your loved ones. 

And with more than 800 vaccination sites across L.A. County —  it’s never been easier to get vaccinated. You can get vaccinated from your car, or walk up to any clinic without an appointment or insurance. You can even get vaccinated during your daily commute because L.A. Metro is offering the vaccine at transit stations across the County.

LOS ANGELES CITY COUNCIL REDISTRICTING COMMISSION

What is Redistricting?

Every person in the City of Los Angeles lives in a City Council district, which is defined by certain streets and neighborhoods. We have the opportunity to elect a city council member based on what district we live in. For example – Lincoln Heights, Boyle Heights, Pacoima, San Pedro, or Venice are each in different Council districts, and residents in those communities vote for different people to represent them.

Every ten years following the decennial U.S. Census, the Los Angeles City Charter requires that district boundaries for the City Council be redrawn. As communities get smaller or bigger, and people move in and out, it is important that the districts are defined fairly and equally. According to the U.S. Constitution, all electoral districts within a given redistricting map must contain approximately the same number of people. The maps drawn will determine the allocation of political power and representation at every level of government (city, county, state, and federal) across the nation for at least the next ten years.

As part of this process, a twenty-one-member Redistricting Commission is formed with members from the public with the authority to make recommendations on a redistricting plan to the City Council that sets boundaries for the City Council districts. Redistricting is primarily done using U.S. Census data, which is usually released around March 31, 2021, but is expected to be delayed until August or September 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Per the City Charter, the redistricting process for the City of Los Angeles must be completed by December 31, 2021.

Why Should I Care About Redistricting?

Where district lines are drawn may determine where residents can vote, whom they can vote for, and even how responsive elected officials are to your requests.

Past redistricting efforts have divided Asian, Black, and Latino communities to prevent them from electing their own representatives. The maps were drawn so that communities of color were split up in ways that they never had a majority – and thus, could never vote for one of their own people.  

Representation is power. Who represents you in City Hall can mean more affordable housing, cleaner streets, and better parks. And making sure your district is drawn in a way that gives you fair representation can make a big difference for you and your family.

Los Angeles City Council Redistricting Commission

The core purpose of the Los Angeles City Council Redistricting Commission (LACCRC) is to independently draw proposed Los Angeles City Council District boundaries based on census data that will allocate constituents proportionately while also accounting for the unique histories, experiences, and interests of communities, such that those interests will have the highest probability of being served by elected representatives and the City of Los Angeles.

LACCRC has developed a calendar for Redistricting Public Hearings that will provide residents the opportunity to talk about their “communities of interest”, a fundamental component of drawing new Council District boundaries.  There will be 19 public hearings that began July 1st and will go through September 25th.

The public hearing for CD1 is scheduled for Saturday, August 14th at 10 am in a virtual format.  Attached is a flyer, fact sheet, and second flyer with all public hearing dates.  The Commission will follow a standard format for introducing the redistricting process and receiving public testimony from as many residents as possible about their perceptions of their “communities of interest”.

Councilmember Cedillo Executive Producer of ARENA: A House Music-al

ARENA is a musical play based on the house music of the 1990s at the legendary ARENA Nightclub in Hollywood. It follows a group of friends during a turbulent time when HIV/AIDS infections rose 130% among LGBTQ Latinos. ARENA is the story of Lucio Torrez, a 21-year-old Chicano man with a dynamic voice who is the music minister director at the Pentecostal Church of East L.A., where his father is the pastor. He has a closeted relationship with the church guitar player and his parents find out. They demand he attend Exist in Truth (EXIT), a gay conversion group, to keep his ministry and continue being part of their family or lose it all. Lucio attends EXIT and realizes that his truth is what is most important.

ARENA features over 15-20 original music compositions and great dancing, a signature of a TNH Production! The creative team that brought In The Heights, Disney’s Aladdin Dual  Language Edition, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast – The Broadway Musical and Sister Act to Boyle Heights brings you another high energy, poignant story that will bring you to your feet, touch your heart and inspire you to sing as you leave the theater.

ARENA is presented by: Los Angeles City Councilmember Gil Cedillo, TNH Productions, CASA 0101 Theater, and El Centro Del Pueblo.

Planning For Pets If You Can’t Be There For Them

Your illness, accident, hospitalization, or death could leave your furry companion out in the cold. Companion animals may end up all alone with no one to care for them due to their owner’s unexpected illness, accident, hospitalization, or death when no arrangements have been made for their care.

By planning for the unexpected, you can ensure that your furry family member has food, water, shelter, proper care, and love if you are no longer able to provide for them. Proper planning can help guarantee your best friend is well cared for in the event that something unexpected happens to you. Here is some information to get you started.

Dear Friend,

This week's rise in new infections is the worst since March 12, when we were coming down from the surge, and had 306 new cases. It’s also a 260% increase over last week’s 109 infections. Back in March we also had 16 deaths, compared to 2 fatalities now.

Wearing a mask indoors with others reduces the risk of both getting and transmitting the virus. The LA County Department of Public Health is now requiring masking for everyone while indoors at public settings and businesses, regardless of vaccination status so that we can stop the increased level of transmission we are seeing. Please take care of our family, friends, and neighbors by wearing a mask and getting vaccinated.

I'm now including County stats on vaccination rates in CD1 communities in the Cedillo Weekly. You can see why getting vaccinated is important and has a connection to the COVID-19 case rate. If you are not able to go to a vaccination site, you can now get vaccinated at home. Call the DPH Hotline at 833-540-0473 to schedule an appointment.

Please take advantage of the California Earned Income Tax Credit. For information and Free Tax Prep LA community locations go to Free Tax Prep – HCIDLA (lacity.org).

As we enjoy the summer, free concerts are back at Grand Performances at the renovated California Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles. Visit their event calendar here.

I also invite you to attend a wildlife seminar. Join LA Animal Services in a session on the wildlife you may encounter in your neighborhood.

L.A. County Community Transmission of COVID-19 Increases from Moderate to Substantial; Reinstating Masking Indoors for Everyone - 1,537 New Confirmed Cases of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County and 3 Deaths

Community transmission of COVID-19 has rapidly increased from Moderate to Substantial, based on the trend in daily new cases of COVID-19. The Los Angeles County Health Officer Order will be modified to require masking for everyone while indoors, regardless of vaccination status, as Los Angeles County sees more than a seven-times increase in new cases since the June 15 reopening. Wearing a mask when indoors reduces the risk of both getting and transmitting the virus. This additional layer of protection can help to slow the spread and does not limit business occupancy and operations.

Small, Nonprofit Theaters Will Receive a $50 Million One-Time Subsidy As the First Step In Ongoing Funds Supporting Diverse Theater – Councilmember Cedillo Advocates For More Through SB 805

Photo Credit: CASA 0101, 24th Street Theater and LA Theatre Center

California’s beleaguered network of small, nonprofit theaters will receive a $50 million one-time subsidy under a $262 billion California state budget agreement signed this week by Gov. Gavin Newsom. This is a great first step to support small theaters in California. Councilmember Cedillo introduced a resolution in Council that was passed, supporting SB 805 (Senator Susan Rubio), the next step in supporting small theaters over the long term. SB 805, if fully funded, will help small theaters, who now have to provide a minimum wage, and cover payroll taxes, workers' compensation, and unemployment costs to their workers. Councilmember Cedillo strongly supports a coalition of small theaters that are pushing for this funding including CASA 0101 Theater, Los Angeles Theatre Center, and 24th Street Theater.

Amigos y amigas:

El 60% de los residentes del Condado de Los Ángeles están completamente vacunados, pero es vital que el 40% de restante, lo haga lo antes posible para brindar protección a nuestras familias y nuestra comunidad. Si aun no te haz vacunado, puedes encontrar un puesto de vacunación cerca de tu domicilio en el siguiente enlace VaccinateLACounty.com o en LAC | DPH | Vacunación COVID-19: cómo vacunarse (lacounty.gov).

También, por favor consulta la lista ampliada y actualizada de síntomas publicada por el Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado de Los Ángeles.

Me da mucho gusto informarles que sí tendremos la Serie de Conciertos de Verano del Levitt Pavilion en el Parque MacArthur Park. El sábado 31 de julio de 7:00 pm a 9 pm, tendremos como invitado especial al grupo Selenamos, una banda tributo a Selena Quintanilla. Tu y tu familia están cordialmente invitados a una tarde-noche de mucha sana diversión.

Me complace informar que el Equipo Cedillo y los Departamentos de la Ciudad están trabajando arduamente para brindarles servicios básicos. Por eso me alegra compartir con ustedes las cifras de servicios realizados durante el año reciente. Si tienes alguna petición, puedes llamarnos al (213) 473-7001.

Hace unos meses presenté una moción para que LADOT ampliara el servicio de transporte público – DASH E – en el Distrito 1. Como resultado, la Ciudad está brindando la ampliación de esta ruta desde el centro de Los Ángeles hasta MacArthur Park.

Por otra parte, LA Animal Services ofreció reducción de tarifas de adopción para perros y cachorros y eliminó las tarifas de adopción para gatos y gatitos gracias a una donación de ASPCA durante el pasado fin de semana.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

A partir del 10 de julio, la ruta DASH E se extendió desde el centro de Los Ángeles hasta el MacArthur Park.

Esto como respuesta a una moción del Concejal Cedillo solicitando a LADOT el despliegue de autobuses DASH E adicionales en el Distrito 1.

Nuestros adultos mayores, estudiantes y familias merecen mejores servicios para mejorar su movilidad, y este es un paso hacia la dirección correcta para ayudar a satisfacer nuestras necesidades de transporte público en nuestras comunidades que dependen en gran medida de estos servicios, señaló Cedillo. “Es fundamental que nuestras comunidades tengan acceso a un transporte limpio, confiable y asequible”, agregó.

Audiencia pública sobre servicios de tránsito público

Foto: LADOT

Durante los últimos dos años, LADOT implementó dos programas piloto de tránsito: DASH to Class que ofrece tarifa gratuita a estudiantes, y LAnow que brinda servicio de microtransporte compartido en West LA. Ambos programas han demostrado éxito en sus fases piloto y reflejan el compromiso de LADOT para quienes viven, trabajan y visitan nuestra ciudad.

Como lo requiere la ley federal, descrito en los requisitos de la Circular 4702.1B-Título VI de la Administración Federal de Tránsito (FTA), LADOT completó recientemente un análisis de equidad de tarifa para DASH to Class y un análisis de equidad de servicio para el piloto de microtransporte LAnow. El 14 de julio, LADOT ofrecerá dos audiencias públicas, de forma remota y telefónica, para discutir estos programas.

Como parte del proceso de audiencia, tendrás la oportunidad de proporcionar comentarios, preguntas o ideas. Si deseas aportar tu opinión pero no puedes participar en la audiencia del 14 de julio, tus comentarios escritos pueden incluirse en el registro público.

LADOT is now accepting applications for new crossing guards. Crossing guards provide traffic guidance at designated street intersections, allowing for a safer and calmer environment for students and their families as they travel to and from school. The city crossing guard program — jointly administered by LADOT's District Engineers, Traffic Control, and Safe Routes to School program — uses needs-based analyses to direct safety improvements and personnel to school zones.

For detailed information regarding how to apply to the City Crossing Guard Program, please visit ladot.lacity.org/crossingguard.

DASH E Route to Change Expanding Further From Downtown LA Into MacArthur Park

Starting July 10th, the DASH E route will change expanding further from Downtown LA into Macarthur Park. It will run along Alvarado Blvd. for a block before going back to downtown. It currently only reaches Witmer before doubling back. A few months back Councilmember Cedillo introduced a motion requesting LADOT to help us deploy additional DASH E buses into our district, and today he is very excited that the City is providing expanded DASH E service from Downtown LA into MacArthur Park. Our senior citizens, students, and families deserve improved services to enhance their mobility and this is one step towards the right direction to help meet our transit needs in our communities that rely heavily on these services. It is critical that our communities have access to clean, reliable, and affordable transportation.

You can see the route changes here.

LADOT Transit Fare Change Public Hearing

Over the last two years, LADOT implemented two innovative transit pilot programs - DASH to class, which offers free fare to students, and LAnow, providing on-demand shared microtransit service in West Los Angeles. Both pilot programs have demonstrated success in their initial pilot phases and reflect LADOT's commitment to improving mobility for those who live, work, and visit our city.  

As required by federal law, outlined in the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) Circular 4702.1B-Title VI Requirements, LADOT recently completed a Fare Equity Analysis for DASH to Class and a Service Equity Analysis for the LAnow microtransit pilot. On July 14, 2021, LADOT is offering two public hearings, remotely and telephonically, to discuss these findings.

As a part of the hearing process, you have an opportunity to provide any comments, questions, or input. If you would like to provide input but cannot participate in the hearing on July 14, your written remarks can be included in the public record.

  • Cedillo vota por la disposición del cumplimiento para mantener el derecho de paso público seguro y limpio

  • Reportar fuegos artificiales ilegales

  • Resolución de Cedillo a favor de la SB 805 que otorga fondos a teatros pequeños sin fines de lucro

nationbuilder_-_plazadela_raza_

Amigos y amigas:

La semana pasada, el Concilio escuchó al público y analizó diferentes ideas sobre cómo lograr con consideración el cumplimiento de los derechos públicos seguros y limpios que están completamente obstruidos. No hacer nada no beneficia a nadie. Las acciones tomadas esta semana son un avance y no se pueden retrasar mientras esperamos algo perfecto. Nuestro objetivo es ofrecer servicios a cualquier persona antes y durante los esfuerzos para limpiar y despejar los obstáculos del derecho de paso público, y no perseguir una pena menor por incumplimiento intencional.

Quiero aclarar que esto no criminaliza la falta de vivienda. Hace responsables a las personas si deciden no cumplir con las indicaciones del derecho de paso público después de que se les solicite que eliminen voluntariamente sus objetos personales o propios. Mis votos para apoyar estas acciones están motivados por los logros de nuestras comunidades para liderar la Ciudad con la construcción del mayor número de viviendas de apoyo permanente.

La oficina del Distrito 1 es la única que implementa diariamente lavandería y duchas móviles, la única en operar cuatro sitios de Project Roomkey, dos sitios de estacionamiento seguro, dos sitios de refugio provisionales y un sitio de Homekey. Sigo trabajando con personas que apoyan y se oponen a mis acciones para ser compasivo y lograr que se cumplan los reglamentos de la Ciudad. Debemos trabajar juntos para encontrar un equilibrio rumbo al progreso.

Aquí hay algunos puntos clave de lo que votamos la semana pasada, y que volveremos a analizar a fin de mes:

Permitir que el Concilio restrinja dormir, acostarse y acumular artículos cerca de instalaciones públicas como parques y bibliotecas, autopistas y refugios.

Prohibir que las tiendas de campaña y los campamentos bloqueen las aceras obstruyendo el paso a usuarios en sillas de ruedas, (esto es una violación de la Ley de Estadounidenses con Discapacidades – ADA – por sus siglas en inglés).

Prohibir que las personas se sienten, duerman o acumulen propiedades en una calle pública o banqueta a menos de cinco pies de la entrada de un edificio, o dentro de los 10 pies de un camino de entrada.

Exigir un aviso de 14 días, con letreros colocados, de que el campamento está prohibido en un lugar en particular, y buscar que las personas sin hogar cumplan voluntariamente.

Prohibir dormir y acampar cerca de escuelas, preescolares y guarderías con licencia.

Exigir que la ciudad cree una “estrategia de intervención en la calle” dentro de los 30 días para limitar los enfrentamientos entre las fuerzas del orden y las personas sin hogar, excepto en ciertos casos, como cuando se está cometiendo un delito.

Otorgar al Concilio el poder de prohibir acampar en lugares que representen una amenaza continua para la seguridad pública como incendios, delitos violentos u otras condiciones peligrosas.

Atentamente,

Gil Cedillo

El Concejal Gil Cedillo le dijo a Los Ángeles Times que “… exigir la vacunación de los trabajadores de la ciudad es algo que deberíamos haber hecho desde en medio de la pandemia. Una orden es apropiada si es una condición de empleo. Servir a la ciudad es un privilegio”.

“Para inspirar confianza en las personas que servimos”, continuó Cedillo, “el público necesita saber que los trabajadores están vacunados y pueden actuar de manera segura. No queremos que el público dude en buscar los servicios que desea y necesita porque se siente inseguro".

REPORTE DE CORONAVIRUS

COVID-19 esta semana en el Distrito 1

104 nuevos casos para un total de 52,136

3 muertes para un total de 1,343

Se pide a todos los residentes de Los Ángeles, vacunados o no, a usar máscaras ante la propagación de la variante Delta del COVID-19

Hace menos de dos semanas que se eliminó el requisito de usar mascarillas en lugares públicos cerrados, sin embargo, los funcionarios de salud del condado ahora “altamente” recomiendan que todos, incluidos los que ya estamos vacunados, usemos mascarillas en lugares públicos cerrados debido a la rápida propagación de la variante Delta, una mutación altamente contagiosa de COVID-19.

REPORTE LEGISLATIVO DEL CONCEJAL GIL CEDILLO

This week in Council is more consequential than usual for the First District as well as the City.  The two items are as follows:  1. The first item is a motion I introduced relative to the implementation of an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or expiring affordability covenants.    Affordability covenants are signed between landlords and developers  and the city. Most involve an agreement from the landlord to keep units “affordable” for a period of time — typically more than a decade or two — in exchange for some financial incentive from the city. Incentives include density bonuses, low-interest financing, and rent subsidies. In most cases, landlords are free to bring rents to up to market rates once the covenant expires.  Before the pandemic, thousands of affordable covenant units were set to expire this year.  The onset of Covid 19 has made the conditions worse for our most vulnerable tenants.  Many of whom have lost their jobs and behind in their rent payment.  Once the Covid emergency orders are lifted, most are facing eviction.  Those who live in expiring affordable covenant units, like the Hillside Villa tenants in Chinatown, are facing displacement unless they can afford to pay rent at market rate which is 200 to 300% the rent they pay today.     Citywide, this motion is looking into a sweeping rent freeze on apartments whose affordability covenants with the city have expired or are set to run out.  Details of the motion are as follows:   INSTRUCT the Los Angeles Housing and Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), with the assistance of the City Attorney, to report with recommendations on implementing an immediate rent freeze on residential units with expired or soon to expire affordability covenants that is based on health and safety findings regarding undue tenant displacement during the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue said rent freeze until comparable affordable housing units are provided to impacted tenants.  INSTRUCT the HCIDLA to develop recommendations and options for impacted tenants to relocate to comparable low-income affordable housing units, as well as potential funding options to extend affordability covenants citywide in order to prevent widespread displacement.   2. The second item is my motion relative to Winter Shelter Program sites and Augmented Winter Shelter sites.    We are set to close our Winter Shelters and Augmented Winter Shelters in 2 weeks and we cannot allow this to happen. For many districts these beds unfortunately are the only beds between life and death for many people experiencing homelessness this winter.  I have also amended the motion to have the CAO provide a verbal report in Council in 7 days on funding and options to keep our shelters open past March 30.

Amigos y amigas:

El Concilio aprobó la resolución SB 805 que representé y secundó el Concejal Kevin de León. La SB 805 fue escrita por la Senadora Susan Rubio, en representación del Distrito 22 del Condado de L.A. para crear el Fondo de Nómina Equitativa de las Artes Escénicas para apoyar económicamente a las pequeñas empresas de arte sin fines de lucro y garantizar que todos los trabajadores reciban al menos un salario mínimo.

Me preocupa la falta de representación de latinos y latinas, personas de color y otras minorías en la industria de Hollywood, desde el teatro, la pantalla grande y la televisión. La SB 805 es un paso que la Legislatura y el Gobernador del Estado pueden tomar para igualar las oportunidades y aumentar los fondos para capacitar a talentos ya existentes de nuestras minorías. Cuando Hollywood contrate a más de nosotros, estaremos aun más capacitados. La SB 805 proporcionará más recursos para ello.

Muchas comunidades dependen de las pequeñas empresas sin fines de lucro como su único acceso a las artes escénicas, y muchos trabajadores de minorías en la industria comienzan en pequeñas organizaciones sin fines de lucro, como compartió Edward James Olmos.

SB 805 ha sido aprobada por el Senado estatal, por el Comité de Artes de la Asamblea y por el Comité de Trabajo de la Asamblea. Ahora le pido a la asambleísta Lorena González que programe su votación en su Comité de Asignaciones de la Asamblea.

-Concejal Gil Cedillo

REPORTE DE VIVIENDA

Solicitud de apoyo federal para la planificación de la comunidad William Mead Homes

La semana pasada, el Concejo Municipal votó para respaldar una moción de la Autoridad de Vivienda de la Ciudad de L.A. (HACLA por sus siglas en inglés) para presentar una solicitud de subvención federal para apoyar la planificación impulsada por la comunidad en William Mead Homes.

Aquí hay un enlace a la Moción del Concilio

Si HACLA obtiene los fondos del Departamento de Vivienda y Desarrollo Urbano de los EE. UU. (HUD) como parte de su "Subvención de planificación de vecindarios de elección", HACLA trabajaría con los residentes y las partes interesadas existentes para formular una visión comunitaria y mejorar la calidad de vida impactando la capacidad de ingresos, la salud y la educación.

HACLA actuaría en una planificación basada en el lugar de impacta y con los criterios de los residentes para co-crear un "Plan de transformación" para revitalizar William Mead, transformar el vecindario circundante y crear resultados positivos para las familias. HACLA es elegible para recibir hasta $450,000 por este trabajo.

Nuestra oficina observará este proceso a medida que HACLA avance y dará una actualización una vez que sepamos la decisión final de HUD.
