Technology Leadership Academy Visit
On April 18, 2019, District Attorney Torrez visited a high school classroom at the Technology Leadership Academy (TLA). The students there have been working on projects to improve the safety and health of the community. They have proposed various infrastructure, programming, and art installations along Central to fill existing empty lots, from community centers and mobile service units for homeless individuals to venues for food trucks and a BMX bike path. The students employed 3-D printing and architectural design in their project proposals and conducted an examination of stakeholders and obstacles. They talked about their experiences in the community and opinions about the criminal justice system.
