Videos from the Democratic Spaces South LA project are coming soon to this page and the Intersections website.
South LA Democratic Spaces is a collaborative multimedia storytelling investigation that reveals 15 democratic spaces and places in South LA through the eyes of local community organizers and advocates.
These sites encourage positive social change, promote advocacy efforts, and serve as building blocks for community-based social movements.
Interviews were conducted by members of the MetaConnects/Metamorphosis team, along with our partners at Intersections South LA.
