Community Outreach Meeting

  • 9th District Field Office 6509 Gundry Avenue Long Beach, CA, 90805 United States (map)

For the Record is a project by We Are the Next, a nonprofit organization based in Long Beach. In partnership with the office of Vice Mayor Rex Richardson and the Center for Oral and Public History at CSU Fullerton, we'll install a timeline along the public sidewalk documenting the unique history of North Long Beach. 

In order to make this project a success, we're looking for local residents to come share their memories of growing up in North Long Beach, as well as their feedback on the installation! Come join us, bring photos you may have of the neighborhood back in the day, and learn more about this exciting community effort!

The timeline will be made up of sticker details along the public sidewalk on Atlantic Avenue between Artesia Boulevard and 60th Street, and will be installed this summer. 

This is a completely free, public event. If you can't join us for this outreach meeting, please plan to attend one of our others! Additional meetings will be held: 
- Tuesday, 3/27 (4 - 8pm) at UpLAB
- Friday, 3/30 (10am - 12pm) at the Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library
