Panel Celebrating the Life of Legendary Theatre Artist Diane Rodriguez
Latinx Theatre Alliance of Los Angeles
Friday, July 17, 2020 – 7:00 PM
Latinx Theatre Alliance of Los Angeles is honored to present a free panel celebrating the legacy of Theatre Artist Diane Rodriguez, with Jose Delgado, Malcolm Darrell, Olga Garay-English, and Debra Padilla. This panel will be facilitated by Patricia Garza.
At LTA/LA’s first convening in 2013, legendary theatre artist, Diane Rodriguez, gave a rousing keynote to artists about the lessons she had learned along her own path. After losing Diane earlier this year to cancer, her family and friends will reflect on her wisdom and the urgency and relevancy behind her words for today. Diane was committed to creating an anti-racist inclusive movement that raised the voices of the marginalized and celebrated our uniqueness while at the same time explored our shared humanity. Join us for this celebratory free community gathering honoring her legacy of lessons.
Virtual Social Justice Book Club – Pagans in the Promised Land
Saturday, July 18, 2020 – 12:00 PM

Introducing our July Social Justice Book Club read! A little more about the book: The Doctrine of Discovery is a principle of international law dating from the late 15th century. It has its roots in a papal decree issued by Pope Nicholas V in 1452 that specifically sanctioned and promoted the conquest, colonization, and exploitation of non-Christian territories and peoples. Hundreds of years of decisions and laws continuing right up to our own time can ultimately be traced back to the Doctrine of Discovery—laws that invalidate or ignore the rights, sovereignty, and humanity of indigenous peoples in the United States and around the world.
