Union Carpenters from all over Los Angeles showed up in South LA over the weekend to support candidates who support us. Members listened to California Assemblymember Miguel Santiago and Congresswoman Karen Bass talk about the need to make our voices heard on November 8th. Following the rally, attendees received packets of door hangers and lawn signs and headed out to distribute them to member’s homes. KCBS, KCAL, KABC, and KNBC covered the rally.
