El Centro Chicano and The Latina/o Student Assembly are happy to present a new type of series – the L.A. Power Trips. LSA and El Centro want to provide USC students with the opportunity to expand their horizons and explore the dynamic and rich culture Los Angeles has to offer. The L.A. Power Trips will provide students with the chance to continue their learning outside the classroom and directly apply what they’ve learned to real life situations and make connections between various segments, sectors and people that make Los Angeles the great city it is. A member of the USC faculty or staff will always be at hand to help students understand the importance and context of each trip and to answer any questions. Previous trips have been: Cesar Chavez Film at L.A. Live with Actor Eli Vargas, SPARCs (Social & Public Art Resource Center) with Judy Baca, and Homeboy Industries with Father Greg Boyle, Advance Screening of McFarland, USA at LA Live with Q&A afterwards with Director & few actors, among others.
