AOP2016

Thank you to all who came to our 2015 Angel of Peace Awards Luncheon! We celebrated the contributions of Ann Reiss Lane of Women Against Gun Violence, Southern California Cease Fire Committee and Kaiser Permanente, who have worked tirelessly to prevent violence and promote healing in Los Angeles. Congratulations to our Tony Borbon Youth Scholarship Award winners, Andy Vasquez and Davell Olgetree, whose videos on the impact of gun violence moved us all. Special thanks to our emcee Quddus Phillipe, and our presenters Congressman Tony Cardenas, Victor Villegas of Union Bank, Judy Belk of The California Wellness Foundation, L.A. City Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, and L.A. City Attorney Mike Feuer. Together, we are making peace happen!
