j town voice rally this saturday in little tokyo

If you're in Southern California, come on out to Little Tokyo this weekend... On Saturday, J Town Voice will host "J Town VOICED!," a rally to bring attention to the Little Tokyo community's desire for a meaningful dialogue with 3D Investments and American Commercial Equities (ACE), new owners of the Kyoto Grand Hotel and Japanese Village Plaza. The rally will take place this Saturday, April 19, 1:00pm at the Noguchi Plaza.

The goal is to call upon 3D, ACE and major property owners to take formal steps to help preserve Little Tokyo's community institutions, small businesses, and traditions.... because the concern is, they won't. J Town Voice has had an online petition calling for dialogue with these companies: Preserve LA's Little Tokyo!.

The rally will be preceded at noon by "The Little Tokyo Tour of Memories," an interactive historical tour of Little Tokyo, with an emphasis on sites that demonstrate significant changes in the neighborhood over the past 100 plus years.
