With you at our side, we made history today.

This morning the Los Angeles City Council voted 13-1 to officially raise the wage to $15. This is nothing short of historic. Historic for our city. Historic for the economic equality movement. And historic for full-time workers and their families who live on poverty wages. We couldn't have done it without you.  And we can't thank you enough.

This is your victory. This is our time to celebrate.

In solidarity,
-Laphonza and Rusty
