Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy honored SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris and Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Chief of Staff, Ana Guerrero, at the annual Women for a New Los Angeles luncheon on May 12, 2017.
This year’s event, “No Turning Back,” drew hundreds of labor union officials, local legislators, and other dignitaries to the JW Marriott at LA LIVE. Two-time Grammy-winning group Mariachi Divas delivered a lively musical performance. California State Senator Holly J. Mitchell served as keynote speaker.
LAANE’s mission is to build a new economy based on good jobs, thriving communities and a healthy environment for everyone.
