      *California Partnership: Statewide Day of Action Jan 10, 2013 (Next

      the 2013 Budget Release*

      *Contact Astrid Campos 213 407 5840*


      The Governor�s budget will be announced that day (sometimes they�re sneaky
      and do it sooner.) It�s anticipated that with increased revenue, we won�t
      have to be as much on the defensive as in the past about state programs
      that help the poor, seniors and disabled. This could be the year we ask for
      Reinvestment in California Families and restoration of some of the things
      lost over the years, including dental care for Medi-Cal recipients such as
      the 750,000 seniors and people with disabilities struggling on SSI in
      Southern California. More information 213 385 8010 or see contact info
      above. ****

      *2. Hunger Action LA Meeting Friday Jan. 18* ****

      Normally we meet on the 4th Friday but this year there will be a couple of
      exceptions. One of them will be the first meeting of the year. We�re having
      it early so we can discuss among other things the upcoming candidates�
      forums for the Mayor�s race in Los Angeles. How can we ensure that hunger,
      poverty and food justice are issues that will be considered? What ideas do
      our candidates actually have concerning hunger?****

      *Friday Jan 18*

      *10 am to Noon*

      *LAANE, 464 S Lucas Ave LA CA 90017*
