Rally Downtown Aims to Inspire Votes for Measure E, LAUSD Arts Funding
A rally was held today at the Music Center Plaza in Downtown for voters, teachers, students, and other supporters of Measure E. The goal of the gathering, which included performances by LAUSD students, whose arts programs and teachers may face further cuts or complete elimination, was "to bring attention to Measure E on the June 8th primary ballot and see what a 'Yes' vote can do to save the jobs of hundreds of music and arts teachers,
librarians, counselors, custodians and nurses," according to the press materials issued.
We were sent some photos from the event, where LAUSD folks put their talents--and their message--on display for voters to consider.
