Latin@ Academy on Issue Advocacy,
July 14, 2018, 11am-5pm
Bicycle Club, Bell Gardens, CA
WCVI will sponsor a day-long training at the Bicycle Club, Bell Gardens that focuses on civic and elected leaders, community-based organizations, and activists from southeast Los Angeles.
Southeast LA (SELA) is the most Latino and immigrant region of urban California. It has transformed from white working-class neighborhoods to a burgeoning Latino immigrant community in one generation. In many ways SELA encapsulates the most thoroughgoing set of issues present in any urban setting in our state. Issues of
- Lower LA River Revitalization and Economic Development
- Civic Engagement and Immigrant inclusion
- Air and Water Quality
- Educational quality and equity
- " Transportation Infrastructure Needs and Affordable Housing
to name a few are ever present in SELA. Through its new SELA engagement project WCVI, Cal Community Foundation, Cudahy Mayor Chris Garcia and others present this training to provide another tool for local leaders in pursuing changes and improvements in the above-mentioned issue areas and more.
