Spotlight Loisaida is a short video mini-series co-produced by FAB and Loisaida Cultural Center with the generous participation of some of our community's most dedicated and creative residents. These videos are meant to highlight some, but by no means all, of the important cultural traditions and stories of the Loisaida neighborhood. Through Spotlight Loisaida, we hope to encourage people to explore the richness and vibrancy of the neighborhood on their own!
In this episode, Carlina Rivera shares with us her commitment to the pioneering Lower East Side neighborhood while giving a contemporary context and inclusive vision in which LOISAIDA is embedded within. Carlina is a lifelong LES resident and district leader; she is currently CM Rosie Mendez’s legislative director and will be running for Council Member in 2017.
