Geography Professor Gary Hytrek Awarded LB Community Foundation Grant

On May 6, 2019, the Long Beach Community Foundation awarded Gary Hytrek and the CSULB 49er Foundation a grant to fund a four-week, no-cost leadership development and capacity building program.  The focus of this program will be to accelerate civic engagement by connecting and empowering historically disenfranchised residents to critically analyze community challenges, and to mobilize and organize these residents to protect and revitalize their communities.  Initial activities including a community outreach are currently underway.  Nice work Gary!
