Sample Ballot Los Angeles City Primary Nominating Member of City Council District 10 Channing Martin
Channing is a civil rights and climate justice organizer with the Labor/Community Strategy Center, manager of the Strategy and Soul Movement Center in South L.A. at the corner of King and Crenshaw, and producer of Voices from the Frontlines—your national movement-building show—on KPFK Pacifica that he co-hosts with Eric Mann. He is a graduate of Audubon Middle School, Crenshaw High School, Otis College of Art and Design, and the Center’s National Leadership School for Strategic Organizing. He hosts the Pan African Film Festival volunteer film showing every year at Strategy and Soul. Channing is fighting for a 50% reduction in the LAPD force—from $2 billion a year to $1 billion, from 10,000 armed police to 5,000—as a first step to curb LAPD Power and abuses and move funds to schools, hospitals, and social services. He is fighting for Affirmative Action for Black Jobs, Open Borders and ICE out of L.A., massive government investment in very low-income residential housing, abortion and reproductive rights for women, and an end to the U.S. permanent war against the people of the world. We must reduce LA greenhouse gases by 50% now through free public transportation and No Cars in L.A.
