Re:Work Radio’s new episode, Block by Block, takes a deep dive into the stories of two South Los Angeles residents, Sirenia and Patricia, who have been building community power one block at a time. As community and civic engagement organizers at SCOPE, they have engaged communities throughout Los Angeles in politics and encouraged increased electoral participation.
This episode has been produced in partnership with SCOPE-LA, an organization that builds grassroots power to create social and economic justice for low-income, female, immigrant, black, and brown communities in Los Angeles.
