Storytellers at Voices 4 Oceans 2018

We are so grateful for the opportunity to host our annual Voices 4 Oceans event at the beautiful Moss Theater, located at the New Roads School at the Herb Alpert Educational Village. New Roads School is a diverse and cohesive educational community, reflective of the kaleidoscope of cultures, ethnicities, beliefs, and orientations that make the larger Los Angeles community so vibrant. New Roads believes that a meaningful 21st century education must include a diverse cohort as well as integration with the larger community in order to prepare students for conscientious participatory lives and not merely to ready them for college.

All proceeds support 5 Gyres' mission to end the global health crisis of plastic pollution!
