Boyle Heights War Memorial Plaques Stolen for Metal Value - speak out!


Gentle reader,

Thanks for subscribing to our video newsletter, which mostly serves as a subscription channel for viewing the long form Los Angeles history webinars that kept us sane through the pandemic lock down.

This video vignette is a call for concerned citizens to demand that the City and County do something to break up the criminal enterprise that is stripping the commons of historic metal objects, including the Mexican-American All Wars Memorial at Cinco Puntos in Boyle Heights that was shamefully vandalized before Veteran’s Day.

You can learn more about this in our main newsletter.

yours for Los Angeles,

Kim & Richard
