Mayor Eric Garcetti, Anahuak Youth Sports Association, and The City Project discuss the progress in his first 100 days on parks and recreation, schools, health and environmental justice. The meeting took place on November 6, 2013.
The Mayor supports the San Gabriel national recreation area. President Barack Obama and the Mayor last week talked about greening the L.A. River. Raul Macias and Jesse Rosas of Anahuak emphasized improved fields and reduced fees. The Mayor, Anahuak, and The City Project use youth sports as an organizing tool to build good citizens, and healthy, safe, and green communities.
Mayor Garcetti celebrated his birthday with Anahuak, The City Project, and Northeast Parents Association in February 2013. We look forward to making that an annual event!
