"A Conversation Deferred...Yet Again" by Taylor Thomas
"Last week, AQMD held a conference in Downtown LA to, in their words "highlight ways in which public agencies can better collaborate with local communities and improve coordination in responding to residents’ concerns.

EYCEJ is launching a blog series, #EYCEJSeedBank, focus on highlighting leaders within our movement. This series is to lift up the passion that fuels our work. As communities committed to #FightingForLife we are constantly battling larger systems of power, whether they be the State or corporations. We hope this series is an avenue to shed light on the love and humanity of our movement by sharing the stories of organizers/community members/leaders.The personal is political, and we want to provide a space for our leaders to share the passion that fuels our everyday struggles and resiliency. We encourage folks to engage in our series and initiate conversation (comment, 'like', share, tag).
This blog is place to hold space to share the narratives of our movement.
