Luis J. Rodriguez

Luis J. Rodriguez: In A Time of Crisis, Time for Rebirth

Presently Los Angeles City is reeling with four Latino leaders speaking against Blacks, Indigenous, LGBTQ people, Jews, and Armenians. We must reset and regenerate a new vision, with inclusivity and embracement, for all Angelenos. And set the foundation of a new type of governance in the city.

Join the conversation with our speaker:

For 50 years, Luis J. Rodriguez has been working with gang youth, the homeless, prisoners, labor, the undocumented, Indigenous people, poets, and artists. He's co-founder of Tia Chucha's Centro Cultural & Bookstore and founding editor of Tia Chucha Press. He has 16 multi-genre books including the memoirs "Always Running, La Vida Loca, Gang Days in L.A." and "It Calls You Back: An Odyssey Through Love, Addiction, Revolutions & Healing." From 2014-2016, Luis served as Los Angeles' official Poet Laureate.
