This property is under the jurisdiction of LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva, who respects personal choice not to receive the vaccine.

Rally speakers will include:

– John Knox, founder of Firefighters 4 Freedom

– Amy Bohn, co-founder and executive director of PERK (Protection of the Educational Rights of Kids

– Dr. Simone Gold, M.D., J.D., FABEM, founder of America’s Frontline Doctors
