People of Atwater Village: Matthew Tani
You're a resident of Atwater?
Resident of Atwater Village for sixteen plus years now. Atwater Village is amazing not only because now it's blossoming with cool little shops and coffee places, it's good because as long as there's parking it'll always feel like a very community oriented kind of suburb. It's a good place to have a family. And this is from somebody who's lived here when it wasn't necessarily the best as it is now. It was as picturesque as I could get living so close to L.A.
There are a lot of remnants from this neighborhood when it was built in the thirties, nineteen twenty-seven actually to be exact. If you look at some of the the sidewalk it will say manufactured and built strong, nineteen twenty-seven. It's awesome.
The above interview is transcribed and edited from the following interview:

Female former factory workers hope to use university degrees to improve workers’ rights after Rana Plaza and coronavirus pandemic.
These profiles highlight the intersections of COVID-19 and other social and economic indicators in specific neighborhooods in L.A. County.
I became passionate about making natural body care products not only to address the contaminants of pharmaceuticals, but also to connect with my Mayan ancestry.
