Alliance for a Better Community honors prominent Latinos at its first Zócalo event 

The Latino advocacy and outreach group, Alliance for a Better Community (ABC), partnered with the performing arts nonprofit, Grand Performances, to curate song and dance presentations that pay tribute to the county’s more than 4.8 million Latinos, which account for 48% of the total population. The event took place in October 13 at the California Plaza amphitheater in Downtown, Los Angeles, commencing a nonprofit’s debut Zócalo series. The event drew inspiration from the Zócalo in Mexico City, the main ceremonial center in the former Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan.
