Below is the latest email from AAAJ-LA’s founding ED Stewart Kwoh, and interim ED Sylia Obagi. This is yet another example of the lack of transparency by Management and the Board. We have credible evidence to believe they will announce layoffs this coming Monday, despite the tremendous efforts by staff to find alternatives to termination. Five years of admitted financial mismanagement led us to this crisis. “Fixing it” by letting go of hard-working staff and cutting critical services is not the answer. AAAJ-LA’s leadership has failed its staff, its clients, and the communities they profess to serve.
But we won’t go down without a fight. Please check this blog and our Twitter for updates on upcoming actions.
