Supporters of 2020 Presidential candidate Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders hit the campaign trail on his behalf a day before the opening of Sanders’ South L.A. campaign office.  On Dec. 29, Brooklyn-based activist and writer Shaun King, who focuses on civil and human rights, racial justice, mass incarceration, and law enforcement misconduct, visited Pastor Michael Fisher’s Greater Zion Church family in Compton before stopping by Bishop Jawane Hilton’s City on the Hill in Carson. King was joined by civil rights attorney Lee Merritt and Assemblymember Reggie Jones-Sawyer.
