Local business and community organizations representing the "Respect Me Commission" will be hosting a town hall meeting tomorrow in Los Angeles for an open forum which aims to discuss the social impact that the negative depictions of women of color in the media has had on society. The event is to be broadcast live on KJLH Radio .

"…we are serving notice to everyone in the United States of America and further, we want our respect. We’re going to respect ourselves and we’re going to demand everybody respect us," shouted the movement’s organizer Brenda Marsh-Mitchell, president of Mothers In Action.

The "Town Hall" will begin at 7:30am and continue through 10:00am.  The address for the event is 600 State Drive at Exposition Park (Los Angeles).
