“My sincerest condolences go out to the family and friends of Rita Walters My heart breaks for the community she so diligently served on the City Council and the Library Commission for over 15 years” #Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas #LACounty

Channel 1 Los Angeles


“As a civil-rights advocate and the first black woman to be elected to LA City Council, Ms. Walters was not only a pillar to this community but a model public servant. She inspired the minds of future generations of women of color to strive for their dreams and accomplish their goals regardless of their adversities.”

“To my dear friend and fellow City Council colleague, may you rest in peace. To her family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. May God continue to bless you and keep you during this difficult time.”
