Nominations Meeting – This Friday, July 14th at SHARE! Culver City

Good morning all who would like to be present at the birth of the New Coalitions.

This is a reminder of our meeting on our new day at a new place where we will be recording attendance for Membership so that we can Officially have Nominations for Officers for our NEW BEGINNINGS.

THE NEW LACCC, INC. , because we are a new nonprofit will be putting the Latino and Asian Coalitions under our Umbrella, so that they will be able to raise money, so that they too will become their own Nonprofit.

The Latino Coalition is well on the way of meeting the requirements which they need to start earning money.

The Asian Coalition is now under the leadership of Pamela Inaba our Nonprofit Secretary as the “Advisor.”

The leadership of the three Coalitions thought that by joining forces we would be stronger with supporting one another.  That would make LACCC, INC, the Parent Company and the Latino and Asian Coalitions as the well deserving Children.

2016 Voice Awards

The Voice Awards is held by SAMHSA to showcase Consumer and Mental Health Activists and Advocates Nationwide and show portrayals of Mental Health in the Film and TV Industry.  This year it is being held at UCLA’s Royce Hall on Wednesday, August 10, at 6pm.

I would like to see more Consumers, providers, family members, caregivers, community members, and service personnel this year.  But especially Consumers and Service Personnel, noting that so many Government, Police, and Neighborhoods are being affected with violence that has not been responsible by people affected by Mental Illness as much as News media has shown. Also people with Substance Use (Abuse) concerns as well.

Please note that the event usually lasts till about 9:30.  It is a special dressy event so PUT ON OR BORROW SOME DRESSY DUDS AND COME ON DOWN!!! Appetizers (hor d’oeuvres) will be served before the awards.

Here is the link to RSVP for the upcoming voice awards if you don’t have this link already.
