The Hollywood Chapter of the National Organization for Women (Hollywood NOW) is proud to endorse Councilmember David Ryu in his upcoming re-election on March 3, 2020 to the Los Angeles City Council for District 4. 

Along with its endorsement of Councilmember David Ryu, the Executive Board of Hollywood NOW issued the following statement: “As an immigrant and the first Korean American on the LA City Council and second Asian American in the City’s history, Ryu’s support of the chapter and for women and girls is exemplary.  Ryu worked to create the first permanent Bridge Housing Center for women experiencing homelessness in his district.  From an ordinance to reform the City’s matching funds program, which directly helps women and men from all walks of life run for office, to comprehensive parental leave policies, Ryu is a champion and ally for women and girls and he is our Councilmember in every sense of the word.”

Hollywood NOW is a membership organization committed to institutionalizing intersectional gender equity. Our work transgresses over social boundaries and walls built to imprint, reinforce and protect implicit stereotype biases that damage all of us. As a progressive, intersectional feminist organization we advocate for solutions that recognize that individuals face multiple intersecting discriminations/privileges based on race, sex, gender, sexuality, and other statuses. We stand to work to eliminate institutional privilege, discrimination, and bias.
