Lunch with a Leader: Marqueece Harris-Dawson, LA City Council
Marqueece Harris-Dawson is a member of the Los Angeles City Council, representing District 8 since 2015. This 18 square-mile district geographically ranges from Baldwin Hills to Watts and all the middle-class neighborhoods in-between. From the greatest concentration of African American wealth to the least. Beautiful well-maintained homes to areas of blight.
As a long-time community organizer in South LA, Harris-Dawson relies on his deep roots and relationships to promote good policy and civic engagement.
Lunch with a Leader provides students, faculty, and members of the public the opportunity to hear ideas from local, state, and national leaders, share their own ideas, and gain inspiration for effective governance in a more intimate and informal setting.
