A few Superior Court judges want to permanently close eight LA County courts, including the Kenyon Justice Center. Closing Kenyon would hurt working families by making us travel to faraway courts, creating tension among local youth and leading to unfair fees. That’s why community voices and elected officials are speaking out. Town Hall guests include:

Mark Ridley-Thomas: Chair, LA County Board of Supervisors

Arnella Sims: LA County Superior Court Reporter and SEIU 721 Executive Board Member

Kenneth Jones: Executive Director, People for Community Improvement-
Shirley A. Henderson: Attorney, represents clients at Kenyon Justice Center

Marcus “Ship” Bell: MyAnti-Gang, Inc.

Crystal Pitts: C.H.A.N.G.E.S.

Dexter McLeod: Assistant Director, People for Community Improvement

Pastor Marcus Jackson: Sr. Pastor Home Assembly Church

Reynaldo Reaser: R.A.C.E.
April 20 is your chance to hear from community members and leaders, be part of the discussion and get involved in the growing movement to save our courts!
Here’s What LA County Residents Want
  • No court closures. Keep all LA County courts open.
  • Public hearings at Kenyon and each targeted courthouse. The public needs to have a say.
  • The judges should partner with the community to find a better alternative.
