LACW Joins LA CAN and Occupy LA at “Chalkupy”

Josephine by I Love the First Ammendment ChakupyOn Thursday, August 9, the LACW joined with the L.A. Community Action Network (LA CAN) and Occupy Los Angeles (OLA) at the “Chalkupy” event at Pershing Square in conjunction with the L.A. Art Walk in downtown L.A.

Here are event PHOTOS.
