LA journalists Jimmy Recinos and Samanta Helou Hernandez are hosting a new Zoom event series on East Hollywood, covering topics including gentrification, redlining and housing.
The first event: “Past: Redlining, Internment, and Resilience,” taking place March 4, will explore inter-ethnic solidarity before and during World War II. The next, “Present: Documenting Gentrification,” will gather journalists, community organizers, and activists to talk about gentrification and displacement, while the last installment, “Future: The Fight for Housing” will convene local leaders to discuss what the future of East Hollywood might look like. The events will offer English to Spanish translation.
Today on AirTalk, we’re learning more about the event series and East Hollywood. Questions? Give us a call at 866-893-5722.
