11/29/2010: projects that fill a void

This week on Hear in the City, we check in with individuals and organizations who are working to address what they see as missing services or opportunities.

We observe World AIDS Day 2010 by looking at the cooperation between faith-based groups and various organizations in the Latino community, which is the population with the most new HIV and AIDS cases in Los Angeles County.

You can find out where to get free testing near your location at www.erasedoubt.org

We visit Casa 0101, a small but powerful theater in Boyle Heights where Latinas exercise freedom of creative expression in an ongoing project called P.M.S. (Pinches Mentirosas Sisters)

And we hear from independent film programmer GarbiƱa Ortega who brings the experimental series “New Landscapes for a New World” to Los Angeles this week, by way of Film Forum.

You can hear an archive of the whole show at KPFK.org
