One of the most significant issues on the ballot here in Los Angeles County is Measure J -- also known as the Reimagine LA initiative. The official ballot argument for Measure J states it will “address the disproportionate impact of racial injustice by prioritizing health, housing, youth development, and jobs in low-income and underserved communities - with a particular focus on Black, Brown and low-income communities.”
Proponents say it may be the most important racial justice issue on the ballot anywhere this year. Mike discusses Measure J and what it will mean for Los Angeles with Isaac Bryan, co-chair of the Yes on J Campaign.
