My Hood, My City

MY HOOD, MY CITY works with Long Beach young people ages 14-24 and communities of color living in the neighborhoods in North, West, and Central Long Beach, which have been historically divested and have experienced the disproportionate impacts of violence, poverty, and COVID-19. We will work with about 10 youth from each neighborhood to develop neighborhood digital and in-person storytelling tours. The tours will raise awareness, pride and knowledge regarding the cultural and structural makeup of their neighborhoods.

Look out for the Neighborhood Tours over the summer in each neighborhood. You can access the digital tours through videos and storyboards that will be shared on yli, Voicewaves and City social media channels, websites, social media, newsletters, LBTV, Youtube, and other platforms.
