On Saturday, September 11,  over 50 Los Angeles Black Firefighters hosted a successful fundraiser in support of mayoral candidate Karen Bass. The event was held at South LA Cafe, an established eatery located within the heart of South Los Angeles, an area within the city near and dear to Ms. Bass. The group’s decision to aid in her campaign is due to her aggressive response to the treatment of vulnerable communities and her efforts in proposing and instituting initiatives that directly affect emergency responders, specifically firefighters. Karen Bass understands her responsibility and obligation to bring about change for the people. This group sends a strong message of their support by affirming, “We stand with, we stand by and we stand for the next mayor of Los Angeles, Karen Bass!” (Courtesy photo)
