Wendy Gladney Brooks

Okay June is here!  When you think of June, what comes to mind?  For some the fact that school is out makes students jump for joy.  For others June kicks off their summer vacation plans.  Then of course in June we have events such as graduations, weddings and Father's Day! The staff at PSP are involved with all of the above.

On the events side we want to bring to your attention the following….

  • Friday, June 6th at Los Angeles Trade Tech College we will be assisting with the Los Angeles "Swearing In" Celebration of Speaker Karen Bass. This event is FREE to the public and all are invited. If you want to attend or learn more please call (213) 620-2082 or email our office at
  • Wednesday, June 18th & Thursday, June 19th the National Black Business Council will be partnering with "Break the Cycle" at Crenshaw High School. On Wednesday the events will be at Crenshaw High School 9:00 am – 3:00 pm for the students of Crenshaw. On Thursday, June 19th there will be a Reception open to the public at The Marriott LAX where Reverend Al Sharpton will be the keynote speaker.

Although PSP isn't working with Judge Mablean this year on her H.U.F. Awards (Honoring Unsung Fathers) on Sunday, June 15th – we encourage everyone to support her in doing the right thing and bringing attention to fathers that make a difference on Father's Day!

Inland Empire I need to hear from you.  Let me know what's going on in the community!

Give your all in all that you do. Then the PLUS won't just be more, it will be the difference!
