Zócalo Public Square takes on ideas that enhance our understanding of community—the forces that strengthen or undermine human connectedness and social cohesion, through lectures, panels, screenings, and conferences. Zócalo is a neutral space for conversation and deliberation about the world today. Established in 2003, Zócalo has featured hundreds of thinkers and doers from a wide range of fields who explore how we see and relate to one another. KCRW has partnered with Zócalo Public Square to bring you this series of talks. KCRW does not endorse the content but presents it as a way to foster discussion and debate about life in Los Angeles.
