Personal Safety Roundtable with Three Public Women

Especially selected for this program are three guests whom are serving locally: Huntington Beach Councilwoman Rhonda Bolton, Garden Grove City Mayor Pro-tem Kimberly Nguyen, and UCI Professor and announced candidate for Irvine City Council Kathleen Treseder.

These three women were chose given the the particular challenges with which they have been contending with in their professional lives.
