Los Angeles, CA (May 18, 2017): For the past three years, Los Angeles-based organization Artivist Entertainment has hosted community forums called CharLAs as a form of bringing people together to discuss social issues, art as a tool for positive social change and community organizing.

Charla is the Spanish word for chat, and while there is generally a performance aspect to the events, the focus is to discuss the topic at hand with local leaders. On May 21st, Artivist Entertainment together with #CultureFix, will present its third CharLA event titled All Things Connected: Building Solidarity Between Communities of Color at the Community Coalition in South Los Angeles. Special guest speakers include Gina Belafonte, co-founder of Sankofa; Dr. Melina Abdullah, Professor & Chair of Pan African Studies at CalState LA and Black Lives Matter LA Organizer; Nobuko Miyamoto, Artistic Director of Great Leap, Inc.; Meymuna Hussein-Cattan, Co-Founder of Tiyya Foundation; and moderated by Nora Rahimian, Cultural Curator and Co-Founder of #CultureFix. Syrian-American hip-hop artist Omar Offendum will perform.

All Things Connected will be a dialogue about the interconnectedness of the struggles of people of Color. The discussion will go into the topics of solidarity, healing, resistance, fighting against divide-and-conquer tactics and the power of diversity.
