LA City Resident We Need Your Help

East of East: Mapping Community Narratives in South El Monte and El Monte is funded by Los Angeles City department of Cultural Affairs. We need to demonstrate that 50 residents from LA City benefited from our project. While all of our four events were well attended (we had a total of 300), our sign in sheets do not account for 50 La City residents.

In order to fulfill that requirement, we are asking friends of SEMAP who attended an event, read one of our essays for the reader, bought (and or displayed) print made for the project, to comment on Tropics of Meta, where we are housing our reader.

All we need is for the comment to include 1) your name 2) neighborhood or zip code

OR, you can simply comment here.
many thanks.

    Ali Rahnoma-Galindo from 90019 (Hancock Park/ Mid City). Great series of events! Looking forward to more hopefully.

    What I love about SEMAP is all the history they’re uncovering & sharing about El Monte! They are not only working to draw out more details about important historical figures who came through El Monte, but helping members of the community see that their own histories are equally important and worth preserving. I enjoyed several events hosted by SEMAP, including the event celebrating Legion Stadium. I was impressed with, back in the day, how many people came out from all over Los Angeles to see the shows (and/or perform) at El Monte’s Legion Stadium. I look forward to seeing more creative & historical work produced by SEMAP! Victoria Bernal, 90026.

    Thank you for such a great project…magnifying places I have only driven by…makes me appreciate my own neighborhood of Lincoln Heights and see commonalities with our neighbors.
