This June, we gave a final presentation about our storytelling project, "Going Gray in LA" to a large crowd of social workers, aging researchers, medical doctors and other providers who are advocating for the rights of older adults in Los Angeles County. We were joined by Kenwood Jung, a housing rights activist from Chinatown, and Michelle Cotton, a family caregiver from South Los Angeles -- both of whom we spent time with for our stories.
On January 14th, we'll be joining a group of artists, storytellers and activists to host Takachizu: Staying Home.
The gathering in English, Cantonese and Japanese will feature photos, multimedia, food, conversation and personal stories about what it means to make a home in a big city like LA--and what it takes to stay there.
