Commemorating the 25th Anniversary of the Los Angeles Uprising
The Way Church @4050 W. Pico Blvd. Los Angeles, A 90019 on April 7-8, 2017
Join us for a two-day forum to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the L.A.Riot- highlighting the impact on Korean-American, African-American, and Latino communities.
April 2017, marks the 25th anniversary of the Los Angeles Uprising. The uprising began after a jury in Ventura County, California, acquitted four Los Angeles police officers who were caught on camera beating Rodney King, a young African-American man. What are the trauma we still carry? How have we been resilient? What are the issues we still need to name and address? How do we move with hope for the future? These are the questions we want to wrestle with our brothers and sisters from the community.
