So much goes into creating a memorable experience for everyone who attends Kids in the Spotlight’s annual screening and awards ceremony. For this year’s 10th anniversary gala it was especially important for the KITS Awards to pull out all the stops, and that meant making sure the eats were plentiful and on point. Chef Diane and Impeccable Taste to the rescue!

Year after year, Impeccable Taste Catering has brought more than just impeccable food to the party. (Those meatballs, tho!) Professional and prompt, the “IT” team always serves our guests with such warmth and kindness, helping us to truly make this a family affair. We are forever indebted to Chef Diane and the entire Impeccable Taste Catering team for adding their special tasty touch to the event.

If you have any catering needs, especially with the holidays quickly approaching, visit http://www.itcatering.com and let Chef Diane and her team give your event the “IT” factor.

In 2018, Senator Mitchell was named vice chair of the Joint Legislative Subcommittee on Sexual Harassment Prevention and Response, formed in response to the #MeToo movement and several instances where accusations had forced some lawmakers to resign. Another “Parallel” with one of our films, tackling sexual assault, premiering this Saturday.

Her 2019 legislative year shows even more of her commitment to those she serves. Some of her authored work signed into law this year includes: the “CROWN Act” (Creating a Respectful and Open Workplace for Natural hair), “Strong Start for CalWORKs Families” expanding access to childcare, “Housing Opportunities Act” addressing housing insecurity, “Building the Juvenile Hall to Career Pipeline” requiring court schools to establish post- secondary education and/or job training, and “Dignity in Pregnancy and Childbirth Act” addressing the inequities of maternal care for black mothers and infants. She also co- authored bills with colleagues, including AB 392 restricting the use of deadly force. This is another topic our youth addressed this year, which can be seen Saturday at the KITS Awards.

Thank you, Senator Mitchell, for your commitment to so many issues that touch the lives of foster youth across Los Angeles, such as our very own Kids In The Spotlight.
