I was already starting to feel ill when I was completing this poster design that I created for Building Healthy Communities South Los Angeles so I wanted to be sure to share it now. Growing up in L.A. during the uprising will forever shape who I am.

“On the 25th anniversary of the 1992 LA Uprising, the South LA community is coming together with over 35 community-led organizations for Future Fest – a rally, march, and community festival to commemorate the past and build community commitment to a vision for South LA’s Future.”

To read a wonderful reflection about anniversary read a piece by Gloria Walton, president  of SCOPE (Strategic Concepts in Organizing and Policy Education) “From The LA Uprising To The People’s Climate March: Building Power When You Are Under Threat: We are now at a flashpoint that will grow and build a new cadre of leaders.”
