This week Innercity Struggle is Celebrating their 5th Annual Awards Dinner as well as commemorating the 40th anniversary of the youth movement in East Los Angeles. I was excited to create a poster for their celebration to help them fund raise as well as to celebrate the anniversary of the ’68 youth movement in LA.
If you don’t know much about ICS, they started 14 years ago to deal with gan issues and have been working in East LA for the past 10 years to improve the educational system. A couple years ago they led a move to create a new high school in the east side.
