Had a good briefing today from local small businesses like Torrance Bakery, Smog City Brewery, Red Car Brewing and Express Employment on challenges to small employers during the COVID-19 pandemic. We also discussed bills pending before the legislature that impact small businesses, including those in the South Bay.

Called for shutting down the AES Redondo Beach power plant by the end of this year at yesterday's State Water Board virtual public hearing. I also introduced AB 353 to shut the Redondo Beach plant down by the end of this year. This fossil fuel-powered plant emits air pollution impacting more than 21,000 South Bay residents who live within a mile of the plant. On top of that, coastal once-through-cooling plants like the Redondo plant causes tremendous damage to the ocean and marine ecosystem.

Supporting the victims of recent anti-Asian hate incidents in Torrance at the #SweatOuttheHate rally (and workout) yesterday at Torrance Wilson Park. Four victims spoke at the rally.

The number of anti-Asian incidents have spiked all over the country in the last five months during the COVID 19 pandemic. Too many Asian Americans are told, "Go back to where you came from", even third-generation Americans like myself.

We need to fight discrimination and harassment against all races, including Asian Americans.

I had a wonderful visit at Torrance's Madrona Marsh Preserve and Nature Center yesterday. Though the Nature Center is still closed, families can visit the Marsh Thursday through Sunday by appointment to ensure visitors are able to safely enjoy the preserve while social distancing. We are so fortunate to have this natural oasis in our backyard to enjoy and learn about native plants and wildlife.

I participated at a press conference at the Torrance Police Department, along with Torrance Mayor Pat Furey and Torrance Police Chief Eve Berg regarding the so called "Racist Rant" video from Wilson Park. Torrance PD announced the name of the suspect and asked the public's help in locating her.

I participated in an event at the Capitol yesterday to remember the life of George Floyd, who was killed while in police custody in Minneapolis just over two weeks ago. Both Assemblymembers and Senators knelt and stayed silent for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the length of time the Minneapolis police officer knelt on George Floyd's neck before he died.

Going to State Capitol to do my job. Believe me my family would prefer that I stay home. Thanks to Carrie Lew of Redondo Beach for the beautiful South Bay mask!

Delta Flight

On my way to State Capitol to fight for our kids and schools at Budget Subcommittee on Education hearing. Delta flight more crowded than I hoped. Disappointed that lot of people not wearing masks including flight attendants.
