Civic Action and Community Voice in South L.A. panel

Streetsblog Los Angeles' very own Sahra Sulaiman is featured on a panel of South Los Angeles leaders/journalists. The panel will explore community building in and around USC and South Los Angeles, with a focus on movements and organizations that are responding to the disparities and injustices that structure life in South L.A. Panelists include:

    • Alberto Retana, the Executive Vice President of grassroots organization extraordinaire Community Coalition (see our recent coverage of them here)
    • Francisco Ortega, the immigration-policy advisor and South L.A. policy advisor for the Los Angeles Human Relations Commission
    • Erin Aubry Kaplan, a journalist and columnist who writes about African American life in Los Angeles for a variety of outlets
    • Sahra Sulaiman, Communities Editor for South L.A. and Boyle Heights here at Streetsblog L.A.

The free event takes place at Room G26 at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism (search for “ASC”.) To rsvp and for more details, read this preview article.
