In celebration and in commemoration of Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend, The office of Councilmember Heather Hutt CD10 in partnership with the LA County Federation of Labor President, Yvonne Wheeler made history as the first women of color in their respective positions to host a MLK Breakfast on Monday, January 16th, 2023 in Council District 10.
Recognized as an opportunity for unity and engagement, the MLK Breakfast will bring together local community and labor leaders from South LA to break bread, reflect, mobilize and rededicate themselves to action before the kick off to the 38th Annual Martin Luther Kingdom Day Parade.
"I am grateful for the opportunity to work alongside Yvonne to bring something special to my district. And in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, ‘The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of convenience and comfort, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy’ – and this breakfast allows us the opportunity to build, strengthen and unify our communities through civic engagement and connection,” said Councilwoman Heather Hutt.
