Change-Links was originated as a community calendar by the Winds of Change conference in Los Angeles over two decades ago.

John Johnson, who became editor and publisher of Change-Links, sustained the paper for many years as a non-sectarian calendar and resource of community cultural and political events. After he passed (April 2014), L.A. activists, including members of John’s family and others who’d worked on Change-Links came together to carry on the paper in his honor and in that spirit.

This is an open, unaffiliated and independent collective activity and we welcome your input and involvement to keep the paper and website alive, and make it an even stronger vehicle for addressing the economic, political, environmental and cultural crises we face, and for promoting the solutions people are crafting in communities of resistance, liberation and solidarity.
