Overheard in L.A.: What We REFUSE to Wear

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

This week's round-up includes snippets of overheard conversation from Nordstrom, CVS but sadly not Runyon Canyon.
