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 (July 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.
Change-Links Needs a Volunteer Coordinator
to assist in bringing people together to determine the necessary resources for continuing C-L with the permanent, reliable status it enjoyed for over 20 years.
The Volunteer Coordinator will also gather volunteers to provide for monthly newspaper production, including copy editing, proof-reading, calendar item collection, attracting advertisers, delivery & subscriptions, computer assistance, and development & fundraising.
Change-Links is one of the few remaining print edition regional progressive newspapers. Our event calendar covers Southern California, focusing on Los Angeles. We provide news, resources, obituaries and reviews, with a focus on social & environmental justice. We need more volunteers to take bundles for distribution in East LA, South LA, OC & elsewhere!
