GET CRAFTY IN SILVER LAKE
This Sunday (and every Sunday) head to the Silver Lake Art Craft & Vintage at the intersection of Silverlake and Glendale in the CitiBank parking lot (2450 Glendale Blvd). If the rain stays away, you can shop and browse the vendors--different ones each week--from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Entrance is free, and there are great deals to be found on cool handmade and vintage wares. Support your local indie artists and crafters!
GET CIVIC MINDED
One LA-IAF, an organization of congregations, unions, and civic organizations from across Los Angeles County, will announce their plan for a Community Economic Stimulus Plan to deal with the housing crisis and create living wage jobs. Over 500 One LA Leaders will address their federal, state and local officials to demand that bailout and local resources get to the communities that need them most. Congressman Howard Berman, County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, State Assemblymember Felipe Fuentes, LAUSD School Board President Monica Garcia, and LA City Councilmember Richard Alarcon are scheduled to participate. Learn what the hope to do about schools, jobs, and wages here in LA today from 3-5 p.m. at the San Fernando High School Auditorium (1113 O’Melveney Avenue in San Fernando).
