Long Beach Stories: The Latina Who Fought Back

Cynthia Macias grew up in the neighborhoods of Long Beach, California when it was the most diverse city in the country. It was a place filled with family, safe streets and ice cream trucks. Sadly, when she grew up, she moved to Ohio and led a heartbreaking life filled with domestic violence and housing discrimination. When she came back home to Long Beach she found her community transformed. A racist landlord tried to give her family the boot, but Cynthia became a fighter and a housing activist instead of a victim.

Join us for a very personal edition of the Priced Out Podcast, as we listen to the pain, the struggles and the victories of one Long Beach resident who has finally had enough.
