Chrissie M. Castro (323) 420-6844; Xochitl, Dhr. Seven (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

L.A. Native Community and Allies,

Come out for a historic Los Angeles City Council vote to establish "Indigenous Peoples Day" in the City of LA:
  • 8:45 AM, Wednesday, August 30, 2017
  • Los Angeles City Hall
  • 201 N. Los Angeles St.
Details: Wear native regalia, shawls, and bring hand drums. We are striving to get 500 indigenous peoples and allies at this City Hall meeting. Come out. Attend this historic vote. Bring family and friends. Share on social media.
We are kicking off the day with a rally at the City Hall forecourt at 8:45 AM. Then we'll all walk into City Council chambers for the meeting and vote at 9:45 AM.
Where to park? Take Metro or carpool.
The city is offering free parking on a first come first served basis. Email the make, color, and license plate of your car to: william.ayala@lacity.org or call Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell’s office at (213) 841-2412.

Visitor's Parking Instructions
Parking is located in the City Hall East Garage. Enter through the LA GATE entrance at 201 N. Los Angeles Street. LA Gate entrance is located between Temple and First Streets. It can only be accessed by heading south on Los Angeles St. Pull to the right side of the parking booth and give your name to the parking attendant. After being issued a one day pass by the attendant take the spiral ramp down to the P-2 parking level.

To reach City Council chambers
Walk through the Van Pools to reach the elevators. Take the elevators to the 3rd floor. Walk across the bridge to City Hall. Go through security to obtain a visitor pass.

Real history of the US (Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz)
Street parking is hard to find. Parking lots can be found, but they can be costly. A good option is to take advantage of the adjacent Civic Center/Grand Park stop on the Metro Red Line, or the slightly farther Gold Line stops at Union Station and Little Tokyo, or carpool with friends and family.
If parking off site, please remember:
One must go through security to obtain a visitor pass in order to be allowed in the building. Enter through City Hall’s public entrance off of Main St., between Temple and First.

Make sure to bring I.D. Go through metal detectors then take the elevator to the 3rd floor, and follow the crowd out to the forecourt to get to the rally.
(Although the rally is off of the Spring St. entrance, one can’t get a visitors pass from that side of the building, so one must enter on Main St.) THANK YOU. See you Wednesday morning!
