Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro will be in Los Angeles Monday as part of his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination.
He’s scheduled to speak Monday afternoon to a classroom of political science students at East Los Angeles College about government, politics, policy and public service.
On Tuesday, Castro will join members of Black Lives Matter at a news conference outside Los Angeles police headquarters calling for accountability for the officers involved in the 2018 shooting death of Grechario Mack. Mack, 30, was shot by Los Angeles police officers while running through a Baldwin Hills shopping mall armed with a foot-long kitchen knife. The Police Commission, the civilian panel that supervises the LAPD, ruled that the final shots fired by the two officers, while Mack was on the floor, violated policy.
Castro will then attend a roundtable on veterans’ homelessness at the Rosslyn Hotel on Fifth Street and later join supporters in Los Angeles at a lunch reception.
On Thursday, Castro will deliver a foreign policy speech at his alma mater, Stanford University, and attend a reception with supporters in San Francisco.
