Our communities are suffering due to decades of bad policy and negligent city council leadership. The result is an unprecedented housing crisis, the nation’s largest jail population, and severely underfunded social services. The people of CD1 deserve better.
We envision a Los Angeles that invests in the needs of its people. Needs such as deeply affordable housing, structurally supported alternatives to incarceration, and expanded social protections that protect Angelenos from the violence of poverty. As a lifelong CD1 resident, she has made a successful career out of actively fighting for this vision in the name of her neighbors and loved ones. Eunisses has led campaigns, coalitions, and commissions that effectively put a check on politicians and transformed policies that were separating families while putting our youth behind bars. She has led major policy wins, such as Measure J and Care First, Jails Last, which have begun to drive hundreds of millions of dollars into expanding and creating access to community based services, housing, and support for young people in LA County.
