Alex was one of the first bicycle advocates in Los Angeles and did a lot of work over decades to make bicycling safer and a bicycle-oriented lifestyle more acceptable. Alex passed away over the weekend and his memorial will be held Wednesday. For more information, click here.
    • Thursday - The East L.A. Community Corporation will be hosting the first discussion in a series exploring the history of systems and policies that have led to the current crisis in affordable housing facing communities like Boyle Heights.
