East Side Stories is an opportunity for youth to be at the forefront of creating social change, and for Los Angeles to come together to share and strategize ways to improve our city. In the great tradition of the Chicano student walk-outs that took place across East Los Angeles in 1968, we continue to nurture a community of resistance and resilience.
