Nominations were closed: in order for nominations to be opened, there would have to be a request, and 2/3 of the folks who vote. If that passed, then nominations could be opened.

Mike Russo (he/him, Advancement Project)
01:52:41
I've been lucky enough to work with Ray -- he's got amazing, humbling experience on both sides of reentry, and has a real understanding of what's needed in all the different parts of LA to make sure all our communities get what they need. And he's a great partner and a key member of Reimagine LA so he's connected to the community

Extremely strong candidates. Ray Zacarias has my vote.
Celine Nehme
01:52:47
My name is Celine, and I wholeheartedly put my support behind Sam Lewis. He is an excellent leader, and as someone who is formerly incarcerated, he knows how to best support reentry work. As President of ARC, he commits himself to reentry work every single day and is a great support system to our Members. We would be lucky to have him represent us as a co-chair.

Van Huynh (he/him)

I want to highlight the comment that was made when we were going through the agreements. It is very true that we are mindful of not concentrating on the orgs but the voices of our communities. That is why I nominate Sam Lewis.He has an depth understanding of the need of employment, housing, therapeutic spaces and much more. But above all an understanding how essential it is to continue to build community with our brothers and sisters. Sam recognizes how vital the voices of our community is by creating space where the voices of our inside and the outside communities are being heard and recognized. Voices that have brought many of our brothers and sisters home.

If you do not like ARC that is fine but don't vote against Sam out of spite for what you perceive our organization to be

Possibly instead of saying by phone use "those who have dialed in" because some are on the zoom app on their phone so that may be where the confusion is.

However, there is absolutely a lack of representation for the Black Community at this time and I am not comfortable with this.

Chrysta Wilson [she/her] on unceded Kizh-Tongva-Gabrieleño Land (Los Angeles)
02:34:04
Hi all- As the Subcommittee, each of you will bring your identities and experiences into the conversations and the hard work of developing these Funding Recommendations for the Measure J Funding for Reentry. My wish is that each of you bring in the diversity of who you are in the work of this Committee. Additionally, all of the Funding Recommendations this community develops will have equity consideratons to make sure we are addressing the impacts of systemic racism.
Dominique Davis
02:34:06
grid is cool but our black communities are suffering from lack of representation no disrespect but I've been to a few of these commitee meeting and I don't see representation for us
April Grayson
02:34:07
Mass incarceration is a derivative of Slavery and amendment 13
Susan Bradshaw

Agree with Shonique
Shonique Williams

I know Ray will hear all voices, he's very inclusive, he will stand up for you. I've seen him in action. As co-chair he is responsible for reporting back to the larger group, but this is where we can say what needs to be said. And based on what Roberto just said I also believe all voices will be represented.
Jessenia Garcia (ella/she)-NHRC
02:36:19
Absolutely!
Pamela Thompson

very well said Shonique

It should have been intentional to add a Black person to the staff. Failure to do so is a disservice to the community.

Yes I agree Journey!! a third chair is needed with the space of a Black woman, black male, and or non- binary individual.

Lynne Moses

The idea to add a Chair has been floated and the importance of African American representation in leadership has been eloquently urged. What would be the path to making that happen?
Pamela Thompson
02:45:58
Roberto thank you for voicing that truth
Susan Bradshaw
02:46:01
Blacks need to be able to influence the recommendations, not just have a few on these subcommittees.
Shonique Williams
02:46:16
That is my point Susan
Cecilia Rocha
02:46:23
Can a motion be put forward to request a vote to add a third-cochair?
Briley Journey Presely
02:46:25
Sam Lewis is one of the most prominent voice for the black community and Reentry. Creating a third co-chair that is representative of the black community at this point is the only compromise that can speak to our need for equity.
Jessenia Garcia (ella/she)-NHRC
02:47:23
