We live in a world where nearly 1 person is forcibly displaced every two seconds. According to the UN Refugee Agency, 68.5 million people around the world have been forced from their home as a result of conflict or persecution, and 143 million people may soon become climate migrants.

In our own backyard consequences of gentrification, tenant injustice, increasing debt, and lack of affordable housing fuel the rate of homelessness. Over 60,000 people are experiencing homelessness in Los Ángeles alone, and a typical USAmerican moves over 11 times in their lifetime for social-economic reasons.

Join us on Friday, September 6th at 7pm to hear the voices of our community share their lived and learned experiences of displacement.

TRANSPORTATION: Parking is available behind the building, enter through the unpaved driveway.. Avenue 50 is also available via Metro Highland Park Station and Southwest Station stops, and by bus line 81 on Figueroa and Avenue 50. There is also street parking, though very limited.

ACCESSIBILITY: Space is accessible by wheelchair from the front entrance, bathroom has limited accessibility. Archways are narrow. Sound in the event space has some echoing.
