Assemblywoman Autumn Burke, D-South Bay, helped hand out roughly 800 turkeys Tuesday morning, Nov. 26, to local families at the Lennox Academy, in Inglewood, as part of the fifth annual Project Gobble. The assemblywoman, along with the Lennox Coordinating Council, led the event — sponsored by local businesses and associations — to supply the turkeys on a first-come, first-served basis at the charter school.

Francis Sanchez, who lives just a few blocks away, said the free turkey will make a big difference for her son on Thanksgiving.

“My son has always had it hard and we don’t get to cook as much as we would like,” Sanchez said, “so having this turkey is going to make a lot of memories for him.”

Brave. Loved. Articulate. Dynamic. Precious. Safe. Beautiful.

These were the words called out by community members after three young people touched by gun violence shared their stories on a recent Saturday morning at the Inglewood City Hall Community Center.

“You could be anywhere in the world on a Saturday,” said emcee Ashley Wilkerson, “but you chose to come here.”

A poet and activist, Wilkerson believes that words have power. And at this second annual “Youth Survivors Speak Out!” event organized by Mothers in Charge Los Angeles, those words have the power to heal.
