La Pena Cultural Center

Green Cities Fund co-founder Tom Miller assisted in the establishment of La Pena Cultural Center in Berkeley, California over 40 years ago.  La Peña was started by a group of Latin American & Californian allies as a direct response to the military coup in Chile that overthrew the democratically elected socialist government of Dr. Salvador Allende on September 11, 1973.

Below is a short film from La Pena’s January 4th, 2015 celebration of the diplomatic recognition of Cuba and the release of the “Cuban Five” by President Obama.
