The City of Justice Awards Dinner was held last night at the Beverly Hilton. This event commemorated the 20th Anniversary of this remarkable organization.

The crowd, reaching over 1,000 guests, was passionate and diverse. From Labor Unions, the California Teachers Association (350,000 strong) and their representatives, to Hollywood glam, all came together to celebrate this organization and their pioneer spirit. Speakers included Mayor Eric Garcetti, California Attorney General Kamala Harris, and Managing Director of Concord Music Group Scott Pascucci, who also serves as co-chair.

Highlights of the evening included an acoustic performance by Lucinda Williams, an American rock, folk, blues, and country music singer and songwriter; and well-known drummer John Densmore from the legendary group The Doors. The house exploded when the cast of NCSI took center stage to accept an award for keeping TV production in Los Angeles and therefore creating numerous jobs for not only the movie industry, but tradesmen and women as well. Los Angeles’ economy is dependent on movie and TV production and keeping them here is a big deal.

Congratulations LAANE for continuing to fight for the working people, decent wages, and affordable healthcare for all Americans.
