Boyle Heights Announcements

Building Healthy Communities is a 10-year, $1 billion program of The California Endowment where 14 communities across the state are taking action to make where they live healthier. How are we doing this? By improving employment opportunities, education, housing, neighborhood safety, unhealthy environmental conditions, access to healthy foods, and more...across California. Our goal? To create places where children are healthy, safe and ready to learn. We’re aiming at nothing less than a revolution, in the way we think about and support health for ALL Californians...across all zip codes.
The vision of a healthy Boyle Heights is that of a safe, empowered community where children and their families thrive and enjoy a quality of life in their vibrant community. 

If you would like to contribute to Building Healthy Communities - Boyle Heights announcements,

Administrative Relief at Board of Supervisor's Meeting

posted Feb 20, 2015, 3:33 PM by BHC Boyle Heights

HOLD THE DATE: Support for Supervisors Solis and Keuhl’s Motion re: Administrative Relief at Board of Supervisors Meeting

WHEN: TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24th, 2015 @ 9:30a.m. to approximately 12pm


Supervisors Hilda Solis and Sheila Kuehl are introducing a motion that would create an L.A. County Deferred Action Task Force composed of representatives from various County departments, which will develop a plan for the optimal implementation of Administrative Relief, and to report back on that plan within 30 days.

This is a very important step for the County, and it is critically important to the successful implementation of Admin Relief in L.A. County.  The County’s various departments and agencies reach hundreds of thousands of potentially eligible people and can play a critical role in supporting community outreach, connecting people to resources, and providing documents to prove their residency.  Strong public action in support of Admin Relief is more urgent than ever, given the confusion created by the legal challenge to the President’s action.  It’s important to show a broad base of support for this action, and for the overall benefit Admin Relief will bring to the county’s social, civic and economic fabric.

Calling All Movement Siblings

posted Feb 20, 2015, 3:20 PM by BHC Boyle Heights

Dear Movement Siblings,

Thanks for all you do. Looking forward to Friday!
Here's info for immediate release/Please share with your networks:


In face of Black History Month and all the ongoing pervasive violence targeting transgender women and queer youth of color, Trans and Queer youth of color are letting adults know that they are here to express, resist, and organize.


In an urgent youth-led demand for peace and acceptance, we call for safety, dignity and justice for all our trans and queer communities of color. Since the start of 2015, there have been more than seven known assassinations of our trans sisters’ nation-wide, including the murder of queer brown teenager Jessie Hernandez, who was only 17 years old when murdered by Denver police.


Our Trans and Queer youth leaders of color of the Gay- Straight Alliance Network and Youth Justice Coalition from the Southern California area will travel to the Los Angeles City Hall steps to elevate our voices for safety, dignity, and justice of our communities.


Please join us this Friday, February 20th on GSA Day for Racial Justice from 5-7pm, starting exactly at 5:00pm in front of the Los Angeles City Hall where Black, Trans, Queer, Latino, and Asian & Pacific Islander immigrant youth will unite and you matter in this movement! We ask that you walk alongside your movement siblings.  After our unity action, we will gather to watch a free movie screening of Paris is Burning. Please be part of this historic action. See you at 5:00 p.m.
