Justice in July civic engagement event planned for Rialto

Time for Change Foundation is hosting a Justice in July Jamboree Listening Session and Resource Fair at Rialto City Hall to hear issues from residents and make resources available.

The event — held in partnership with Sen. Connie M. Leyva, D-Chino; Assemblywoman Eloise Gómez Reyes, D-San Bernardino; and Rialto Mayor Deborah Robertson — aims to increase civic engagement by having community members raise issues and craft solutions in partnership with local and state officials.

Resources will be available on site, and there will be music, dancing and food.

Attendees will be able to access voter registration, felony removal, rental and utility assistance, as well as free dental checkups, face painting and a dance contest.

“The Justice Jamboree brings voices of change together with decision makers while using the power of the voter as a catalyst for change,” says Vanessa Perez, assoc. director of Time for Change Foundation.

Participating organizations include: Young Visionaries Youth Leadership Academy, COPE, United Nations of Consciousness, California Partnership, Center for Employment Opportunities, Option House, and ACLU - So Cal.

Justice in July Jamboree Listening Session and Resource Fair is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, July 22, at Rialto City Hall, 150 S. Palm Ave.
