As a longstanding resident of East Hollywood, I love my neighborhood from the lights on Virgil Ave to our beautiful Cahuenga Library. As a daughter of immigrants, I understand the challenges our community faces. I have a longstanding interest in improving public policy around the very visible and related issues of homelessness and housing affordability in Los Angeles. I am excited to continue my involvement as President of EHNC. In addition to my leadership in the EHNC, I have been active for 20 years as a leader at a Boyle Heights church, helping organize soup kitchens; immigrant rights information sessions, and several youth-driven activities. Working in the Nonprofit sector, I have a passion for supporting underprivileged and venerable families in East Hollywood through resources and activism. I love to network and connect with our neighbors and bridging the gap between immigrant families and local government. I am looking forward to serving the East Hollywood community with dignity and respect.
My name is Christopher Martinez and I currently serve as your At-Large Representative B for the East Hollywood Neighborhood Council. I was born and raised in East Hollywood and I have many goals I would like to implement or strive toward. I want to increase the power people have in local activism, politics, and demonstrate to our neighbors the power they hold locally. Another aspect that I would focus on is to help increase assistance for those that need food, shelter, economic security, and growing the grassroots movement in our neighborhood. I want to increase and advocate for more Covid-19 testing sites in our neighborhood especially with still so many who have not taken the vaccine. All I want is to help improve East Hollywood even if it is just a little by helping my neighbors with whatever problem they have.

I am a Mexican-American video and film producer living in Virgil Village within East Hollywood. As Tenant Representative, I believe that housing justice is among the most important issues that our community faces today. I hope to lead always with empathy, and find compassionate solutions to the problems our city faces. I would like to see more housing and services provided for our city’s unhoused, more equity and accessibility to transit, healthcare, and fair wages for all, and a transformation of our city’s public safety infrastructure to one that relies on non-violent and compassionate responses to crisis situations, rather than on more violent police enforcement. I’d like to address the effects of systemic oppression and inequality within our existing structures and build towards a more equitable and fair Los Angeles for all.
