The Bethel LA Community Development Corporation in partnership with the Los Angeles Metropolitan Churches and the support of The University of Southern California, Cecil Murray Center for Community Engagement is hosting a “No Justice No Peace” Symposium commemorating the twentieth year anniversary of the civil unrest in South Los Angeles.
The symposium will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 9:00 A.M.- 3:00 P.M. at the Bethel A.M.E. Church 7900 S. Western Ave. Los Angeles, CA. Bethel is located two blocks from Florence and Normandie (the place where the Reginald Denny incident occurred) the rallying place for peace in the community during the time of the unrest.
The symposium will be a day of dialogue between political, religious, community and business leaders reflecting on the social justice, public policy and community development issues that gave rise to the unrest and the state of South Los Angeles twenty years later. The reflections from the symposium will be complied in a document for dissemination to the media, local college and universities, community foundations, local governmental agencies, religious judicatories, and our South Los Angeles community partners in an effort to make the place where we live, work, and worship a healthier community.
