Nestled in the heart of Los Angeles stands the first publicly funded AIDS Monument. Rooted in courage, compassion, and the need for change, The Wall Las Memorias AIDS Monument stands as a symbol of community rising. The Rooted and Rising Community Health Fair aims to encourage health, wellness, and advocacy in the youth of today, tomorrow, and generations to come.

The Rooted and Rising Community Health Fair invites you to come cultivate a safe space for all youth and family to nurture and nourish in community. Join us at Plaza de La Raza and get to know all the resources available to you and your loved ones while you enjoy free community workshops aimed to foster your well-being and deliver a different perspective on what Health is all about.
