Cinco de Mayo:
Exploring the Hidden Origins of an Anti-Confederacy Holiday

Los Angeles County’s Second District is home to transformative models for community-building and advancing social justice that spans generations.

This deep wisdom comes from the lived experiences and cultural influence of its diverse communities and its history of standing up to injustice - from Watts in 1965, Florence and Normandie in 1992, to the post George Floyd world we now face - the Second District has created organizations and leaders that have shaped a national blueprint for confronting racism and creating meaningful change.
