About this Event
In the late 1960s and early 1970s, many changes were occurring in Los Angeles for the Latinx community. The Chican@ Moratorium was the beginning of a lifetime of activism and a wave of community expression through art. Join Evelina Fernandez, Maria Elena Yepes, and Paul Botello as they share a glimpse of the Chican@ Moratorium and its influence in the Chican@ Movement and culture in Los Angeles.
The conversation is free to join! Make sure to RSVP to receive the virtual meeting link and call-in information.
Live Spanish interpretation will be available on Zoom.
