SLAP Town Hall Meeting
This Saturday, Ron Kaye will take his Saving Los Angeles Project (S.L.A.P.) from the steps of City Hall and move it into the challenging realm of nuts and bolts activism.
What is being called a Town Hall meeting could actually be the birth of a potentially dynamic and effective citizen fueled effort, acting outside of the constraints of the Neighborhood Council system, to bring real change to the City as we know it.
Although I have great respect for the NC's, and high hopes for their future, until they either earn the right or seize the power to act in more than an advisory capacity, then my money will ride on any group that has the ability to bring legal challenges, and can respond swiftly to deal with issues affecting their communities.
The beauty of SLAP is that within it, you will find a mixture of NC representatives , along with those who work outside of the system, and many who are just either interested in a particular issue or testing the waters of community participation.
The common goal is the same.
The City of Los Angeles is a mess, and it's going to take a real effort by all of us to turn this ship around.
Roll up your sleeves, it's time to get busy!
S.L.A.P. Town Hall
Saturday, Aug 2nd
2 to 4 pm
