"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
Los Angeles-Visit Climates of Inequality, a week-long pop-up exhibition featuring stories of environmental justice from the US, Mexico, and Colombia. Interactive displays bring you to the frontlines of community organizing in twenty-two localities, where the majority of residents are immigrants, low-income, Native American, and people of color. Though they have contributed the least to the climate crisis, these communities bear its most immediate and heaviest burdens. Yet in the face of this, communities have innovated creative strategies to resist and seek change, from coalition building and other solidarity movements to greening and restoring sites of significance.
FREE, Saturday, September 23 – Sunday, October 01, 2023
Where: Japanese American National Museum, Aratani Central Hall | 100 North Central Avenue | Los Angeles, CA 90012
