On Thursday July 7th the Joe Bray-Ali campaign team joined our Lincoln Heights community and local law enforcement officers from the LAPD Hollenbeck Division for Coffee with a Cop.
The Coffee with a Cop event is intended to break down barriers between police and civilians, and instead build bridges for open communication and support. The event drew over 50 people, all of whom enjoyed tasty pastries and hot coffee courtesy of LA Baking Co. The café setting and casual conversation allowed community members to bring up issues and ask the officers questions in a comfortable environment.
Also present at the event were board members of the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council, property owners, and representatives from local small businesses. Thanks to the Hollenbeck Division for sharing your perspective from the streets of Northeast Los Angeles District 1 neighborhoods!
