VOTE to return Festival of Sail to the LA Waterfront Labor Day weekend with free sails and educational and career training opportunities for young people! Los Angeles Maritime Institute NEEDS YOUR VOTE in Councilman Joe Buscaino’s Community Grants Challenge. Voting ends Monday May 31. VOTING is FREE and as a supporter of LAMI you are eligible to vote. Use LAMI’s zip code “90731” on ballot.
(Proposals are in alphabetic order by organization. LAMI is mid-way down on ballot.)
We don’t want cost to be the reason young people can’t learn about and experience all the fantastic educational and career opportunities that exist at the LA Waterfront.
The 3-day 2021 Festival of Sail in San Pedro during Labor Day Weekend will have nonprofits, institutions, agencies, and industries showcasing their opportunities for youth education, careers, and community involvement. Young people and their families will enjoy visiting the informational booths, participate in fun activities, and viewing inspiring demonstrations and presentations throughout the day. If you participate in the Festival, you are eligible for a free sail on one of LAMI’s four 1-½ hour voyages aboard its tall ships that day!
