Hahn Stands with Armenians on 36th Anniversary of Massacre in Sumgait

Los Angeles, CA – Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn released the following statement to mark the 36th anniversary of the pogrom against the Armenian residents of Sumgait, Azerbaijan:

“I stand with the Armenian victims and descendants of the Sumgait pogroms on this 36th anniversary and with the 120,000 Armenians of Artsakh who fled from their homelands after a 280-day blockade ended in a brutal military invasion by Azerbaijan last year.

I call on the Biden Administration to sanction Azerbaijan under the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act and to provide urgently needed humanitarian assistance to the 150,000 Armenians forcibly displaced from Artsakh since September 2020. As Azerbaijan continues its unprovoked attacks on the Republic of Armenia itself, I urge Congress to revoke the Presidential Waiver of Section 907 of the FREEDOM Support Act to stop U.S. military aid to Azerbaijan.”

Knabe Park Pool to Get Lighting Ahead of Longer Pool Season

Hahn has extended County pool season from ten weeks to six months

Cerritos, CA – Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn is announcing that the public pool at Don Knabe Regional Park in Cerritos will be getting extensive lighting installed in coming weeks. This is part of Supervisor Hahn’s work to extend the pool season through the end of October.

“We all know that the warm weather doesn’t end in August and our pool season shouldn’t either,” said Supervisor Hahn. “I am keeping our County pools, including the pool at Knabe Park, open through October and we are installing new lighting so people can swim in the evenings.”

The Don Knabe Community Regional Park Pool Lighting Remodel Project will include installation of underwater lighting, upgrade of existing deck lighting, security lighting and emergency lighting. Construction will start March 4th and will be completed before the pool opens in May.

The LA County Department of Parks and Recreation manages 30 pools countywide with 25 of them previously open just ten weeks out of the year under the standard pool season which ran from June 15 to August 21st.

After speaking to constituents who were disappointed pools closed so early, Hahn pushed to extend the ten-week pool season to a six-month pool season. This year, County pools will be open from May through the end of October and the Department of Parks and Recreation has hired and trained additional lifeguards to keep the pools staffed.

Hahn Applauds State Decision on RPV Landslide

Rancho Palos Verdes, CA – Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn is applauding a determination by the California Office of Emergency Services that the City of Rancho Palos Verdes can use a current State of Emergency to implement immediate emergency measures to help reduce further damage to the landslide area.

“I appreciate the State for providing the clarity the City of Rancho Palos Verdes needed,” said Supervisor Janice Hahn. “The County will continue to provide our support and assistance to the city as they address the very serious land movement crisis.”

On February 20, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes City Council requested the Governor consider proclaiming a State of Emergency to suspend and waive state permitting requirements to allow the City to immediately begin work on landslide stabilization measures. Supervisor Hahn supported the city council’s request and the County’s Office of Emergency Management acted as the intermediary to forward the city’s request to CalOES.

Today, a press statement released by the County of Los Angeles, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes, and the California Office of Emergency Services confirmed that the California Office of Emergency Services has determined that the City is able to utilize the current February 4 State of Emergency to implement immediate emergency measures to help reduce further damage to the landslide area. This includes the installation of additional drainage systems and wells to extract groundwater and other measures that would prevent surface water from adding to the saturation.

Hahn Urges Governor to Witness Land Movement for Himself

Rancho Palos Verdes, CA—Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn released the following statement urging Governor Gavin Newsom to come to Rancho Palos Verdes to see the destruction the land movement has caused:

“We need the Governor’s help. It is my understanding that the City of Rancho Palos Verdes will be asking the Governor to declare a State of Emergency for the Greater Portuguese Bend Landslide Complex. I think if the Governor came here and saw the buckling streets, the homes sinking and cracking apart, and the historic Wayfarers Chapel on the verge of collapsing, he would understand the urgency of this request. This is a crisis that is getting worse by the day, and I urge Governor Newsom to visit us and see it with his own eyes.”

Hahn Launches $50,000 Golf Initiative for Southeast Los Angeles 150 150 Hayley Munguia

Hahn Launches $50,000 Golf Initiative for Southeast Los Angeles

Program will offer golf clinics and related opportunities designed for Latinas, seniors, youth, among others

Downey, CA — Yesterday, LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn launched her Golf Initiative for Southeast LA, a collaboration with the Latina Golfers Association (LGA). Hahn presented a $50,000 check to Azucena Maldonado, the organization’s founder. The LGA will use the funds to run five different programs for women, youth, mothers/daughters, middle school girls, and senior citizens. The goal of the initiative is to open not only playing golf to groups that have not historically participated in the sport, but giving them access to the various benefits that golf offers, from exercise to personal and professional advancement.

“Women and girls still face barriers in everything from sports to business to government, and for Latinas those hurdles are even higher. That means missing out not only on the fun of playing golf, but on all the great opportunities that golf offers,” said Hahn. “With this initiative, we’re going to help knock that barrier down for people who have been overlooked and underserved in golf.”

Dozens of participants signed up for the inaugural golf clinic held yesterday at the Los Amigos Golf Course in Downey, including middle school students, seniors, and local leaders among others. Councilmembers Dr. Monica Sanchez of Pico Rivera, Brenda Olmos of Paramount, and Gabriela Gomez of Bell Gardens also joined the launch, as well as Norwalk mayor Margarita Rios.

“The Latina Golfers Association is honored and humbled to receive the support and generous grant from Supervisor Janice Hahn,” said Maldonado. “Supervisor Hahn’s Tee It Up Golf Initiative for Southeast Los Angeles is going to have a huge impact in the lives of residents of all ages and the Latina Golfers Association is so excited to be given this opportunity to share the benefits of golf with the community.”

The Latina Golfers Association was founded in 2008 with the goal of “empowering girls and women using golf as the vehicle to break gender and cultural barriers in the business world.” Through their participation in LGA programs, participants are able to take part in business and corporate golf outings and networking opportunities.

Hahn Issues Statement Following BSCC Decision on Probation Youth Facilities

Los Angeles, CA– Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn issued the following statement after the Board of State and Community Corrections voted to find both Los Padrinos Juvenile Hall and Barry J. Nidorf Juvenile Hall unsuitable:

“It is unfortunate that the Probation Department made excuses at today’s BSCC meeting instead of owning up to the unacceptable conditions at two of our probation facilities. The BSCC wants to see real change and I expect the same.

Multiple probation chiefs have been unable to fix the problems facing the department. I am concerned about the future of the Probation Department and whether they are capable of the reform that we all know needs to happen.”
