Gabriela Lopez started this petition to Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti and

On September 15th, Donald Trump will give his  national security address from USS Iowa in San Pedro. As a community built on diversity of Croatians, Italians, and Latinos we do not feel comfortable in hosting a man who has spewed hatred and discrimination towards our parents, friends, neighbors and babies. This Battleship is part of American History and should not allow a man who has injured and insulted a significant portion of the Los Angeles community. While he has the right to his opinions he does not have the right to insult and spew hatred towards Latinos and immigrants. This community, as it has been well documented, is united as one and does not feel comfortable in hosting a man who has used hatred to gain political points. Donald Trump has a golf course about a mile away and can very well hold his conference in his own property. We are for freedom of speech, however this ship represents freedom, equality and justice; terms that do not align with Mr. Trump's political views. 

As a community this petition is a massive display of zero-tolerance for hateful remarks, and one that will show that we will not allow discrimination in our city.
