Veterans, environmentalists, service-providers, job-seekers and members of
Congress will be among the thousands to rally in downtown Los Angeles on

envisioned in H.R. 1 that would threaten the economic recovery and produce more
job losses.

Resolution Appropriations Act for 2011 on February 11, 2011. This bill will
result in either deep cuts or elimination of City programs that Los Angeles
relies on to provide a variety of core services including economic development,
public safety, summer youth jobs, workforce training, domestic violence
shelters, homeless shelters and services, and hundred of other critical jobs and
services.

WHAT: To send a message to congressional leaders in Washington DC. Mayor
Villaraigosa will speak at a downtown of at least 2,000 Los Angelinos opposing
HR1 the bill to cut funding for job creation, community and workforce
investment.
