Thursday 12/10 6:00-8:00pm *What's Working is Broken:  Police Violence, 
Racial Profiling & Liberation Arts (Youth Justice Coalition & MAAPB)
/@ Mass Art-Kennedy 406 Auditorium, 621 Huntington Avenue, Boston
The City of Lost Angels/ memorial & /What’s Working is Broken/ album are 
currently touring as a multi-media installation that is being seen in 
galleries, schools and street corners across the country, engaging other 
artists, organizers and community members along the way. **Funding this 
project will allow us to bring the installation to more cities, 
**complete this powerful album and continue documenting personal 
testimonials of those impacted by police violence and the system. *

*/CITY OF LOST ANGELS/ *is a memorial to loved ones who have been killed 
by police or street violence, and those that have been lost through 
incarceration and deportation.  Over the past 10 years, Kim McGill, an 
organizer with the Youth Justice Coalition (YJC), has worked with young 
people in juvenile halls, youth prisons, high schools and community 
centers to create these memorial plaques.

*/WHAT’S WORKING IS BROKEN/* is an album composed by Veronique 
d’Entremont of recordings made during YJC protests and organizing 
against LAPD violence, and personal testimonials of police abuse.  It is 
an audio experience that integrates personal stories, radio journalism 
and music. YJC youth leaders Malik Brock, Ronnie Dunmore and Jose 
Gallegos have joined this project to work on new tracks and bring it to 
the streets as a tool to engage people in conversation and action to 
expose and end police violence.

*Together we are using this project to educate, inspire action, build 
connections and promote understanding between communities, and to 
support the Youth Justice Coalition's organizing led by youth and 
communities most impacted by police violence, including the families of 
more than 630 people killed by law enforcement in LA County since 2000.*


Thursday 12/17 7:00-8:30pm *Malcolm X Listening Session: "/You're Living 
in a Time of Revolution"/*
/@ Ayida Gallery, 391 Dudley Street, Roxbury


*Get involved & Join the fight!*
