Staunch ally Bass rallies support for Obama jobs speech

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA), one of Barack Obama’s key allies, called for democratic supporters to rally behind his crucial jobs speech Thursday. She also pre-empted criticism on the Republican side by noting that even if House Speaker John Boehner wrote the address, he’d oppose it if the president delivered it. Bass made her comments at a press briefing Saturday while hosting the Grand Opening of her District Office, located at 4929 Wilshire Boulevard, which was attended by over 200 invited guests. The former Assembly Speaker actually opened the office in January, following last ...

Congresswoman Karen Bass remembers civil activist L. Mobley

South Los Angeles activist Lillian Mobley, who advocated for better education, transportation, healthcare and other public services for the community, has died. She was 81. Her son Kenneth Mobley says his mother died Monday at Centinela Medical Center in Los Angeles from natural causes. Mobley was part of a group that spearheaded the fight to bring a hospital to South Los Angeles residents after the 1965 Watts riot. The result was Martin Luther King Hospital, later known as Martin Luther King/Drew Medical Center. Her son says Mobley also was instrumental in the opening of the Charles Drew ...

Bass talks health care reform in wake of strike down ...

A conservative federal appeals panel struck down President Barack Obama's health care overhaul Friday. Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) warned on KPCC's Patt Morrison's program that the conservative federal appeals panel that struck down the health care overhaul is "part of the ongoing effort to make sure that health care reform does not get implemented in this country." Bass said while those actions can slow down the process of implementing universal health care, they can't stop them. "So long as we retain the senate and the current president in the White House they [conservatives] will never be ...

Rep. Bass Statement on the Recent Release of 21 Schoolgirls from Chibok, Nigeria
“The release of 21 Chibok young women from the grips of the terrorist group Boko Haram into the custody of the state services department is bittersweet news. The negotiations – brokered by the International Red Cross and the Swiss government – have resulted in the greatest breakthrough since the beginning of this ordeal. However, I join the rest of my colleagues in wanting to see the release of the remaining 197 girls who remain in captivity and are still enduring systematic abuse, rape, and forced labor at the hands of these militants. “I’d like to also acknowledge the relentless work my colleague Rep. Frederica Wilson has put in to help bring an end to this situation. While she did not directly impact today’s outcome, as the Chibok girls' most fierce and vocal advocate, Rep. Wilson introduced H.R. 3833 in an effort  to address the onslaught of Boko Haram and secure the girls’ safe return. This bill was recently marked up by the HFAC Africa Subcommittee. “In keepin
Rep. Bass Attends the Grand Opening of the Tom Bradley Global Awareness Magnet School Computer Lab
On Tuesday, Congressmember Karen Bass (CA-37) joined International Game Technology (ITG) for the grand opening of the Tom Bradley Global Awareness Magnet School Computer Lab. The computer lab is part of IGT’s After School Advantage Program, which provides educational opportunities to local children by donating new computers, printers, software, furniture, and volunteer hours to public schools and non-profit organizations that sponsor after-school programs. Through IGT’s $56,000 donation, the Tom Bradley Global Awareness Magnet received 35 desktop computers, a projection system, assorted furniture and decorations for the room. The computer lab, which will be available to 250 after school students, was made possible through the collaborative effort between IGT, the Los Angeles Unified School District and Rep. Bass’ commitment to delivering resources that have a real and tangible impact on the community. Every young person, regardless of their zip code, deserves a fair shot and
Rep. Bass Statement on the Passing of Shimon Peres
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressmember Karen Bass (CA-37) issued the following statement regarding the recent passing of Israeli leader and Nobel laureate Shimon Peres. "I join the many voices mourning the passing of Israeli elder statesman Shimon Peres. Peres served his country in widely disparate roles, including multiple cabinet posts and nearly a half-century in the Knesset.  His contributions were recognized in the U.S. with the Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and his efforts to promote peace led to his sharing the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize. Peres remained active in the pursuit of peace into his ninth decade of life, and he never lost faith in a bright future for Israel and the surrounding region. A ‘warrior for peace’ has left the world stage, but his legacy remains, as does the opportunity for a renewed attention to his life-long quest for stability in the Middle east. May his memory be a blessing."    
Rep. Karen Bass on Recent Police Violence in South Los Angeles
"I am deeply disturbed and distressed at the latest police-involved shootings. The people of South L.A. need answers, and I share their anger, frustration and fear. While the facts of both cases are still being examined, I urge that there be fair and impartial investigations. We must have a serious conversation about ways in which officers can defuse dangerous situations without necessarily resorting to shooting suspects. My condolences go to the families of the two men who were killed."
