The LACW joined with Los Angeles Community Action Network (LA CAN) for a Labor Day block party on 6th Street for the folks on Skid Row. Megan cooked 20 gallons of excellent chili, which was a huge hit with those in attendance. Megan, Jed, and Mike served as LA CAN BBQ’d hot dogs and handed out a variety of chips, water, soda, and watermelon. There was some good entertainment with the Skid Row Percussionists, a Jimmy Hendrix cover band, an R&B band, the spoken word, among others. With the temperature hovering in the low 90s, though hot, it was a good party.
