To put together again.
Join us as we ride down the LA River Re-Membering stories of fights against environmental racism and other forms of injustice in our communities along the LA River.
Throughout the ride we will re-member sites like Belvedere Park, East LA, Sleepy Lagoon, Fwy divisons, rail yards, and discuss the historical significance to communities of color as sites of resistance and push for survival. APA Los Angeles’ Young & Emerging Planning Professionals (YEPP) will be supporting a station on the tour.
Because we live in these communities, we know that the fight still continues.
For this reason, we will highlight work being done to address injustice across the river.
We will tell stories.
We will revisit sites.
We will Re-member.
