Congratulations are in order for Inglewood’s very own Dallas Fowler. She is a newly selected delegate member of the Commission on the Status of Women, for the City of Los Angeles. She was originally appointed to a six (6) month term from January 31 through June 30, 2014.
Previous articles in the Los Angeles Wave alluded to City of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti not doing right by African-American’s who helped on his mayoral campaign. The Betty Pleasant article instigated a published response by community activist Najee Ali who said “…friendship doesn’t include privelegs (his spelling)”.

These articles prompted us to inquire with Mayor Eric Garcetti as to why Ms. Fowler’s appointment to the women’s commission was only temporary? He gave us some PC response and I left it alone.
Now, I am happy to report, that Ms. Fowler is now a permanent delegate to the commission. According to her bio, she is a graduate of Los Angeles African-American Women’s Public Policy Institute (LAAAWPPI), out of USC, which is the urban equivalent of Emerge, which is based in Northern California, that assists women with political aspirations.
Ms. Fowler also provides training on campaign communications and media relations, for LAAAWPPI students, which we found interesting because a current candidate Ms. Fowler normally works with hasn’t communicated to the voters for her upcoming November 4th re-election bid nor does the candidate have a website.
Anywho, congratulations are still in order to Ms. Fowler. The investment she made in joining LAAAWPPI is certainly paying off.
If you are a woman interested in pursuing a career in politics and have a passion for fundraising, definitely consider joining either LAAAWPPI or Emerge. They both cost $1,500 if you are selected.
