why this story is important

Communities have the capacity to tell their own stories. This documentary short follows the Best Start Metro LA Communications Task force as they explore the history of muralism as a means to tell a story and share a vision. Through the ideation and hands-on creation of their own mobile mural, they hope to show a shared story, underline shared values, and integrate the stories of the rest of the partnership as a form of transformative community involvement.

Why this story is important

An increasing amount of studies are emphasizing the importance of early childhood developmental screenings. For some parents in LA County, Help Me Grow LA's early identification screenings are the best chance to receive timely support in their child’s needs. However, statistics alone don't capture how critical these screenings are for LA County's most vulnerable families. Adriana and Damian's story  is a testament to First 5 LA’s mission-driven values and the importance of sharing real-life stories with funders, policy makers, and families across LA County.

why this story is important

First 5 LA's core mission rests on the principle of giving the best possible start for the nearly 800,000 children ages 0-5 in LA County. This video illustrates the positive outcome of a collaboration between First 5 LA, the community residents of Wilmington, and CycLAvia, an ongoing Open Streets event in Los Angeles. It is important for other communities in LA County to witness how an event like Cyclavia catalyzes vibrant public spaces, active transportation and good health through car-free streets in order to get more children and their families outside and engaged in powerful community building.
