Marianne Williamson Endorses Louks for Malibu City Council
MALIBU, CA — Today, June Louks, a candidate for the Malibu City Council, announced that Marianne Williamson, an internationally acclaimed author, lecturer and thought leader, has endorsed her candidacy for the April 8th election.
“I have watched June Louks stand up for issues she believes in with courage and conviction,” said Williamson, who is also running for Congress in California’s 33rd district. “I have watched her step into her power with gentleness, but also with a fierce strength. I applaud any woman who goes from believing in an issue passively, to taking a public stand on its behalf. Such is June Louks, whose candidacy I applaud and support.”
For 30 years, Williamson has been a formidable and tireless activist for addressing poverty, AIDS, and many other issues. In 1990, she founded Project Angel Food, a meals-on-wheels program that serves homebound people with AIDS in the Los Angeles area. She also co-founded The Peace Alliance, promoting legislation to establish a United States Department of Peace. And she serves on the Board of Directors of the RESULTS organization, working to end the worst ravages of hunger and poverty throughout the world.
Six of her 10 published books have been New York Times Best Sellers. Four of these have been No. 1 New York Times Best Sellers.
Louks, who has hosted Marianne Williamson in her Malibu home, credits Williamson as a catalyst for her decision to run for Malibu city council.
“While hosting Marianne in my home, I have heard firsthand her commitment to challenging the status quo on important issues and I have witnessed the tremendous impact of her convictions and efforts. Hearing her speak at a friend’s home here on the Point inspired me to run for Malibu city council,” Louks said. “There are many issues facing Malibu that I am prepared to actively address, rather than passively lament. I believe that strong women with convictions and an open mind for community and collaboration can have a lasting impact in politics,” Louks added.
The Malibu city council election is on April 8.
