Miss Los Angeles County Brings Princess Spirit to LLU Children’s Hospital Patients

LLU-Miss LALOMA LINDA, CA- Miss Los Angeles County 2017, Katie Bozner, visited patients at Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital (LLUCH) Wednesday, August 9. The 22-year-old beauty queen, a Corona native, spent the afternoon talking to patients in playrooms and went bedside to those who were unable to leave their rooms.

A University of Redlands graduate, Bozner’s interactions with the children came naturally. “I really enjoy visiting with kids,” she said during her visit, “and they seem to like me too.”

In addition to taking photos with the kids, Bozner delivered princess crowns, goodie bags and other gifts she made herself to patients, whose smiles reflected the sparkly crown adorned on her head. 

Bozner won the Miss LA County title in October 2016. Although she will give up her title in two months, she is looking forward to competing in the Miss California pageant in December.

The California Legislative Black Caucus Calls Out the Charlottesville Event for What It Is, Pure Racism

Over the weekend, three people were killed and at least 34 were injured in a hate rally of several hundred right-wing extremists on the campus of the University of Virginia. The stated intention of this white nationalist rally was to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee, general of the Confederate Army, yet it was fueled by white supremacy ideology.

“The crime that took place in Charlottesville was one of domestic terrorism. It is the manifestation of the racial divide that we still face in our country that is fueled by fear and hatred of groups whose skin color, religion, or views do not match theirs,” said Assembly Member Chris R. Holden (AD-41), Chair of the California Legislative Black Caucus. “The Ku Klux Klan’s, or white nationalists’, atrocious message is a painful reminder that we have great work to do to unite this nation.” 

President Trump addressed the “Unite the Right” protest under the guise that “many sides” were responsible for the violence that ensued. However, the California Legislative Black Caucus (CLBC) believes that the rally and the crime represent racism in its purest form.

Following the violent conclusion of the Charlottesville rally, Texas A&M has canceled their “White Lives Matter” rally which was scheduled for September 11th featuring white nationalist Richard Spencer. California Universities have been targets in the past for white nationalist rallies. 

“The California Legislative Black Caucus stands against bigotry, divisive rhetoric, and complicity.   We ask that the California universities and colleges remain united for peace, equality, and inclusion because there is power in diversity,” said Holden.
