CÁRDENAS HOLDS CONGRESSIONAL FORUM ON SCHOOL SAFETY IMPROVEMENT
 

(San Fernando Valley, Calif.) – In the wake of several horrible incidents of violence by young people perpetrated throughout the United States, U.S. Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D-San Fernando Valley) will hold a Congressional Forum THIS SATURDAY, to discuss community-based solutions for improving school safety in Los Angeles and nationwide. The Congressional Forum will allow elected officials, community organizations, residents, non-profits, law enforcement, and the philanthropy community to come share their thoughts and suggestions on how to avoid proposals that exacerbate the School-to-Prison Pipeline.

Speakers will include Judge Michael Nash, Presiding Judge of the Juvenile Court; Judge Donna Groman, Co-Chair of the LA School-Based Arrest Reform Partnership; Calif. Assembly Member Reginald Jones Sawyer; and LAUSD Board Member Nury Martinez.

Recently, Cárdenas joined fellow California representative Adam Schiff in a letter to the U.S. Senate, asking that they recognize the critical importance of juvenile mental health in preventing violence, including gun crime.
