Re:Work Radio Episode “Block by Block”


What makes someone get involved in their community? How do community members become engaged? Not just during election season, but everyday, how do communities come together to solve problems? 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.
