Join us this Saturday as we offer Strategy and Soul Theater as a Cooling Center
Saturday July 29, 2023 10am-4pm
We’re happy to offer the Strategy and Soul Theater as a cooling center for our neighbors in South Central LA and beyond this Saturday July 29th from 10am-4pm.
Strategy and Soul Theater: 3546 w Martin Luther King Blvd. Los Angeles CA, 90008. Please use the link below to reserve your spot and let us know you’re coming.
The Strategy Center fights for the Social Welfare State, not the police state, and the Environmental Justice State, not the warfare state.
For us that means when mother nature gives us lemons, like these high temperatures (88° on Saturday 🥵), we throw an air-conditioned party in Strategy and Soul Theater and make lemonade.
Join us for a day full of activities for the whole family, a film showing of Princess Mononoke and yes lemonade, Barbara’s homemade sun tea, and pastries and food for everyone.
10 am Group Activities
Musical chairs, board games, Sun Prints, and political games, Dance offs, Strategy and Soul bookstore. We have everything you need to keep and the kids engage, Body, Soul, and Mind.
We can’t throw a Strategy Center event without good food, because we can’t have a Strategy without Soul. So join us at 12pm for food for everyone.
1pm Film Showing of Princess Mononoke
Princess Mononoke is a 1997 Japanese animated epic historical fantasy film written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
The story follows a young Emishi prince named Ashitaka, and his involvement in a struggle between the gods (kami) of a forest and the humans who consume its resources. The film deals with themes of Shintoism and environmentalism.
The term Mononoke is not a name, but a Japanese word for supernatural, shape-shifting beings that possess people and cause suffering, disease, or death.
Because we all need embarrassing moments and great moments of fun to pass the time in the heat
The Strategy Center participated in a focus group hosted by the Climate Emergency Mobilization Office and supported by the Liberty Hill Foundation. This resulted in a report, The Turning Down the Heat Addressing Heat Inequalities of Frontlines Communities in Los Angeles. We thank the Liberty Hill Foundation for making sure bus riders we’re an interictal part of the conversation. The report shows the dangers to raising temperatures in L.A. and how it is tied to nearly every other injustice in the city, and Black and Latinx populations in particular will be on the frontlines of the repercussions.
