L.A. Metro invites the community to a series of “Community Conversations” with community leaders near and around Metro transit and bus lines. During these challenging times, it is more important than ever to stay connected with communities and re-learn or learn the histories, art, activism, and cultural assets of the neighborhoods and heritage communities that shape Los Angeles County.
