On April 29, 1992, civil unrest broke out throughout Los Angeles after the acquittal of police officers involved in the Rodney King beating. The response revealed deep chasms between the local government and many of its constituents.  We invite you to join us as we commemorate the 25th anniversary of the L.A. Civil Unrest.
