[email protected] Coalition presents a new bi-weekly fresh produce program called FOOD HAVEN! They are partnering with Food Forward to provide free fresh vegetables and produce to clients and community members in need of food.

Folks are welcome to come to their Drop-In Center between 2pm and 4pm to collect as much produce as they desire. They encourage people to bring a plastic or reusable bag since they cannot guarantee that bags will be available. They also cannot guarantee that certain types of produce will be available consistently or at all (in the past they’ve been able to offer potatoes, chives, avocados, lettuce, and peppers). Participants do not need to be TLC clients or need to become TLC clients to participate in the FOOD HAVEN program.

For more information about FOOD HAVEN, please contact the TLC Outreach Specialist, Liza Aseballos at 213-355-2963 or [email protected]

The Mission statement:

This is a direct response to this administrations memo on Oct. 21, 2018 considering to narrowly defining gender as a biological, immutable condition determined by genitalia at birth to establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX

This rally is to focus on cultivating stronger allyships between our straight & LGB brothers & sisters as well as the Transgender community itself

This is call to action to all communities we need to make a statement that we are here for our Trans Families!!

Our community grows more fearful everyday under this administration & it’s time we let them know we are here, we love you and they #WontBeErased because we won’t let it happen!!

#WontBeErased #TransIsBeautiful
