August 29, 2020 will mark the 50th anniversary of one of the most important moments in Los Angeles and Latino history, a day that began with a hopeful call for justice and ended with crushing state brutality.
Filmmaker Phillip Rodriguez has partnered with Media Sponsors, KMEX Univision 34 Los Angeles and The Los Angeles Times; Community Sponsors WarnerMedia and USC Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism; and Educational Partners Cal State University Fullerton Latino Communications Institute and The National Association of Hispanic Journalists, to launch the Ruben Salazar/Chicano Moratorium social impact campaign for Spanish and English language audiences.
The campaign will center on a virtual screening of the award-winning documentary Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle and a live discussion and Q&A. Additional campaign elements include: the making and dedication of a Ruben Salazar/Chicano Moratorium mural – the first of its kind; a three-part companion podcast series; an interactive learning guide for high school students; and bilingual public service announcements.
This campaign will encourage conversations about journalism, free speech, activism and the significance of this seminal event in Latino history.
Sign up now for the virtual screening of Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle followed by a live Q&A of leading Latino journalists, artists and present day activists.
