LA Metro criminalizes black riders who are only 19% of riders, but make up over 50% of all LA Metro fare citations, fines and arrest are Black riders on Metro rails – Black riders are stopped, check, profiled, harassed, frisked, cited, fined, jailed, and beaten all forms of dehumanization of Black life to ensure a sterile lily white rail experience for LA Metro imaginary and non-existing choice rider.

  • Strategy and Soul is a political and cultural space for resistance against gentrification to take up and stake space for radical Black imagination and struggle. The space will be at the center of a contested space by capitalist and gentrification economic development interest and hope to contribute to the cultural vibrancy and survival of Leimert Park only a few blocks south, the Crenshaw corridor which is being impacted by the construction of the Crenshaw rail line and dislocation of low-income Black and Brown residents that has suffered an entire generational war of neglect by the system and now its move toward complete removal and eradication.

    Please Consider Supporting Strategy and Soul and our Political Work through a financial contibution.

  • Maria Guardado

    Maria was an important figure of the Bus Riders Union-she and many other Latin America leftists from the First Unitarian Church and their Monseñor Romero congregation were one of the first recruits to the Bus Riders Union-it's like the left gods crossed for the Strategy Center and this group of Latin American leftists to meet.

  • We urge you to reject the DOD 1033 program and support our movement to end the program all together. Like the rounding up of immigrants, shooting of unarmed civilians, police brutality, and mass incarceration, the DOD 1033 program is indefensible. The LAUSD must get out of, and condemn, the DOD 1033 program now.
