You’re Invited! To the Launch Party for Making Our Neighborhood: The Magazine

Los Angeles,

Over the last six months, we’ve worked tirelessly to produce a panel series, art project, education campaign, and last but not least, a printed keepsake embodying the three themes of our project: redlining, gentrification, and housing in East Hollywood.

This magazine is not only an opportunity to support our work so we can continue doing it sustainably, but it’s also a tangible resource and archive of some of the most important stories and issues that shape our neighborhood and city.

With that said, we’re excited to announce that we’ve finally gone to print this week and have decided to host a Launch Party for our supporters on Saturday, June 12th. The event will be held at Bellevue Park, from 2 PM – 6 PM, and will help us save some postage and gas mileage, as well as provide us the opportunity to say more about our stories in person.

If you’re in Los Angeles, come by to pick up your magazine orders, listen to some music, and enjoy some complimentary pupusas from local California Grill with us!

To let us know you’re coming, simply RSVP at our EventBrite page, set up especially for the first ever customers of our first ever magazine.

Looking forward to seeing you, and in community, always

Samanta Helou-Hernandez & J.T.

You are Invited to Making Our Neighborhood: Redlining, Gentrification and Housing in East Hollywood

With our final Redlining poster, one thing is clear:

Racist tools designed to separate and dehumanize “others” can in fact be reckoned with and even “hacked” to serve a higher calling, that is, to bring “others” together for the purpose of humanizing all of us on our own terms.

Join Who Is Your Neighborhood at LACC this Saturday, October 12, 2019

That’s right! Los Angeles City College is celebrating the College’s 90th Anniversary in East Hollywood with quite the event: a Community Resource Day this Saturday from 10 AM – 2 PM on the College Campus.

Naturally, the team behind Back 2 School and I have got to be a part of the special day. So we’ll be staffing a table at the event, where we’ll be talking with visitors about our annual Back 2 School Party, our local Neighborhood Survey, and more ways to get involved with our ongoing efforts to uplift this side of Los Angeles. We’ll also be debuting our brand new banner, courtesy of The Think Farm. Come enjoy the festivities with us!
