LA Activists Call on Political Candidates to Rescind Endorsement of DA Jackie Lacey

*At a press conference on Monday, October 5, Los Angeles civil rights leaders will call for  Los Angeles Mayoral candidate L.A City Attorney Mike Feur, Board of Supervisors candidate and L.A.City City Councilmember Herb  Wesson to  join Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti  and rescind their endorsement of Jackie Lacey for Los Angeles County District Attorney.

“Lacey and her failure to protect Black and brown residents of LA County has demonstrated she is more concerned with protecting abusive and killer cops. Black lives don’t matter to her, but what does matter to her is continuing to be the Black face and tool of a justice system founded and steeped in white supremacy. Her tenure as District Attorney has been a complete disaster. Lacey has declined to prosecute several law enforcement officers involved in fatal shootings of unarmed  residents during her two terms in office.

“LA City Attorney Mike Feur now a mayoral candidate and Herb Wesson a candidate for LA County Board of Supervisors need to demonstrate the same courage and conviction Mayor Garcetti demonstrated when he rejected Lacey’s bid for re-election and rescinded his nomination of her.

“Black and brown voter’s will find it very problematic to vote for any politician running for office who has endorsed Lacey a proven enemy to people of color,” stated Najee Ali  Director of Project Islamic Hope.
