Long Beach, CA
8/13/14 CA State Senator Ricardo Lara displayed a derogatory and racist wall hanging. Citizen lobbyists opposed to his bill SB 1159 requested that the wall hanging be removed. Robert Newman removed the wall hanging and gave it to the staff members. The following week, a constituent visited Senator Lara’s Long Beach office and the wall hanging was again on display. Concerned citizens and constituents are requesting that the senator immediately remove the racist wall hanging and issue a written apology.
