This collaborative multimedia storytelling investigation reveals 15 democratic spaces and places in South LA through the eyes of local community organizers and advocates. These sites encourage positive social change, promote advocacy efforts, and serve as building blocks for community-based social movements. As part of the launch opening reception on September 27th, the community organizers and advocates will share how their work contributes to making South LA a more democratic place in which residents live and work.
The exhibit features stories from the Advancement Project, Black Workers Center, CD Tech, Children’s Nature Institute, Community Coalition, Community Financial Resource Center, Community Services Unlimited, Esperanza Community Housing Corporation, LA CAN, Peace Over Violence, SAJE, SCOPE, Trust for Public Land, T.R.U.S.T.
