Estimados Padres y Madres de Back 2 School 2,

Dear Parents & Guardians of Back 2 School 2,

Who Is Your Neighborhood is a local organization of young professionals–many of whom grew up in the vicinity known as East Hollywood in Los Angeles–as well as fellow residents and other supporters, whose mission is to serve and support local families for the benefit and improvement of our community, which is a predominantly working class, immigrant community of renters and first-generation families.

At our first Back 2 School Party last August 2018, we provided a free day of art, food, music, poetry, and other programs for over 50 different guests from in and around East Hollywood; families walked away with artwork, prizes, new information about local resources, and most importantly: a stronger sense of community in their vicinity than when they first walked into our program.

This year, our goal is to provide a second Back 2 School Party with an even stronger program for guests to participate in. And this is the key goal: participation. In order for us to improve this critical service, the ultimate goal of which is to improve the quality of life for families in our community overall, the work requires continual and increased participation from others. We therefore hope that this day with Back 2 School 2 will encourage families to participate in future versions of this program.

As parents of the next generation of our community, you and your children hold the keys to our future. We therefore honor your valuable contributions to life in our city with this special day dedicated to you. In the days ahead, we can use your support to build even more for our community to grow and prosper from. Thank you for your time, and please enjoy a wonderful day with us in East Hollywood this Saturday, August 24th, 2019!

Your friend and fan,

Jimmy “Jimbo” Recinos,
Quien Es tu Vecindario

Our 2nd Annual Back to School Flyer is a Golden Ticket

But instead of tickets allowing entry to a chocolate factory, they unlock entry to an entire land of sweets and stories, to a world meant not to be spoiled alone, but which is made richer each time it’s shared in kind; to a little pueblo known affectionately as JIMBO TIMES: The L.A. Storyteller.

Have you gotten your ticket yet?
