Resilience & Solidarity in Historic Crenshaw

Friday, October 28

Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell’s Second District Racial Justice Learning Exchange partnered with the County of Los Angeles Commission on Human Relations, Asian American Drug Abuse Program (AADAP) and the Asian Americans Advancing Justice Southern California for a Racial Justice Learning exchange (RJLE) event called Resilience & Solidarity in Historic Crenshaw.

This two-part event included a bystander training and walking tour of the historic Crenshaw District in South Los Angeles. The walking tour gave attendees the opportunity to learn more about historic landmarks that connect the cultures of Japanese and African Americans in the Crenshaw community. The bystander training was led in partnership by the LA County Human Relations Commission (LA vs Hate) and Asian Americans Advancing Justice Southern California. This training served to prepare and empower people to aid in stopping hate-based harassment.
