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.  The Center was founded by Chileans after the destruction of democracy and the death of Salvador Allende in Chile, and since then has been a center supporting political and economic refugees from throughout Latin America with a wide range of political and cultural programs.  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.
