September 11, 2019 @ 4:00 am – 7:00 am
LOS ANGELES―Join us for the first of three public conversations/screenings & story-gathering sessions for The Chicharrón Chronicles, a cross-cultural story-gathering project in Los Angeles’ Historic Filipinotown exploring the colonial legacy of Spain and commonalities among people of Filipinx and Latinx descent. In commemoration of Delano Grape Strike, The Chicharrón Chronicles 01: MOBILIZE // MOVILIZAR // MAGPAKILOS features worker activists from Pilipino Workers Center (PWC), Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHRLA), and Instituto de Educacion Popular del Sur de California (IDEPSCA) in conversation with Moderator Juan De Lara, Associate Professor of American Studies and Ethnicity, University of Southern California. Speakers will share their experiences working together to secure fair wages and humane working conditions for domestic workers and reflect on the legacy of the Filipino and Mexican farmworkers’ movement. Attendees will have the chance to record their stories for the Historic Filipinotown Archive and for possible inclusion in The Chicharrón Chronicles Walking Tour, forthcoming later this year. Wednesday, September 11, 2019, 11:00am-2:00pm Pilipino Workers Center, John Delloro Room, 153 Glendale Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026
