I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra City Council declares October "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" and November "End Domestic Violence Month"

Alhambra City Council declared on Monday that October 2014 will be "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" and November 2014 will be "End Domestic Violence Month." Councilman Steven Placido presented the proclamation to Josephine Yang, president of Soroptimist International's Alhambra, San Marino, and San Gabriel clubs.

Placido read Alhambra’s proclamation: “One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer, with an estimated over 200,000 new cases documented in 2014 alone," he said. "Domestic violence is a serious social problem that exists in all economic segments of our society, in all cultures, and in all countries around the world, with a woman being beaten every 9 seconds in the United States alone.”

Soroptimist International aims to improve the lives of women and girls through social and economic empowerment. Mayor Gary Yamauchi thanked the local chapters Monday for their work in the community. “Soroptomist has been an active club in the city of Alhambra and you’ve done a lot for our community," Yamauchi said. "We want to thank you very, very much for your continued efforts in helping everybody in the city of Alhambra.”

The National Breast Cancer Foundation and National Coalition Against Domestic Violence organize awareness campaigns in October, providing information and resources.
