The LACCD Chancellor’s LGBTQIA Advisory Committee delved into establishing programs including safe zones for students in the queer community in their recent meeting.
The College Promise Program has been helping students for years and COVID-19 hasn’t changed that.
By: Zasha Hayes Students who chose to enroll in East Los Angeles College’s spring semester have experienced a change in the enrollment process.

During times of a major pandemic where immunization is key, minors should have a role in declaring whether or not to take a vaccine.
Last year, councilwoman Mary Cheh introduced a bill to Washington D.C. called the Minor Consent for Vaccinations Amendment Act of 2019 in response to a measles outbreak.

Overspending money, fighting with family and friends and, of course, feeling the holiday blues are just a few of the reasons it might be that holiday gatherings are being limited in scope due to COVID-19.
In elementary school, children are taught not to judge a book by its cover. However, the first thing that happens when meeting someone is looking at an outfit or anatomical traits, so it’s hard for some people to not judge.
Taking things for face value is dangerous because it can disregard the truth and leads to faulty assumptions.
Voters should vote no on Proposition 25. Prop. 25 would uphold Senate Bill 10, which deals with replacing California’s cash bail system.
