Members of the Library Foundation of Los Angeles are invited to join us for a private reception in the Library’s Courtyard prior to the event, from 5:30 PM – 7 PM. Member reception access included with program RSVP.
In our vast city, hearing tales and stories about our neighbor P-22‘s bravery over the past 12 years drew us together. For this program, we gather to hear personal stories by various individuals who made a connection with P-22 and understand the immediate need for wildlife protection. The evening features California Regional Executive Director for the National Wildlife Federation’s Beth Pratt, journalist Martha Groves, author Sherry Mangel-Ferber, Senior Manager of Community Science for Natural History Museum Miguel Ordeñana, Chumash and Tataviam Elder Alan Salazar, and others. There will also be an open mic for those who wish to share their remembrances.
As part of our program, we are looking for Angelenos of all ages to share a personal essay, letter, poem, song, or other form of remembrance that expresses what P-22 means to them. Here are the guidelines:
Time limit is three minutes
Must be your own original work
Must be willing and able to read from the stage at the evening event on February 22, 2023 (stage is wheelchair accessible)
Must be willing to be photographed, videoed, and recorded for live-streaming, podcast, and archival purposes (a signed release will be required)
