Loskota Testifies at L.A. City Human Relations Commission Hearing on Riots
Brie Loskota testified at a public hearing hosted by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the Los Angeles City Human Relations Commission. The event, "L.A. Civil Unrest: A Community Blueprint for the Next 20 Years," took place on April 24, 2012 at City Hall and included remarks by Cecil "Chip" Murray, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck, and L.A City Controller Wendy Greuel.
Loskota's testimony described the growth of the faith community since 1992 and the increasing demands on congregations and faith based organizations. She stressed the need for government agencies to strengthen their partnerships with faith organizations in order to "convert their latent capacity and interest into operational capacity and the know-how to get the job done."
