Maria Elena Durazo will be sharing lessons and inspiration from her decades-long work to transform LA at Progress Summit 2017. Early Bird tickets are available until February 28, 2017.
Durazo is currently running for a Vice-Chair of the Democratic National Committee jointly with Keith Ellison, who was endorsed by Bernie Sanders to be the next chair of the DNC.
Today California - and Los Angeles in particular - stands out as the frontline of resistance to Donald Trump’s regressive agenda and as an incubator of progressive change. But this has not always been the case. It took decades of dedicated hard work by the labour movement and community leaders to raise expectations and create aspirations while scoring real, incremental, wins. At the heart of this transformation and of today’s fortress California, is Maria Elena Durazo, an innovative labour leader from LA.
