Leimert Park: Do you have a story for KPCC's First Person?

What does it take to lead a healthy life? How do we build a healthy community? We know we need good clinics and hospitals staffed by skilled professionals to keep us healthy and and treat us when we're not. But it takes a lot more than that. A healthy community has good schools, plentiful park space, healthy food options, minimal pollution, few or no gangs.Sharing experiences is one way to build a healthier community.

KPCC: South Los Angeles city council candidates work to mobilize voters for May runoff election

There’s been considerable civic angst about the low voter turnout in L.A.’s March 5 primary, which was just 20 percent. In some parts of the city, such as Council District 9 in South L.A., it was even lower. Only 15 percent of the district’s registered voters came out for the primary, so both campaigns are mobilizing to get a bigger turnout for the May 21 runoff. Each is taking a different approach. In the case of Ana Cubas, campaign volunteer Evelia Palmero says going door-to-door is an…See More
