John Johnson passed away on April 13, 2013.
He's best known in LA as the publisher of Change-Links, the monthly calendar of events for the progressive, radical left, and peace movement. It was like the print version of the KPFK Community Calendar for many people, and my first media exposure to LA's progressive community that wasn't a sectarian group, charity, church, or college project. But it was a tough thing to make, because it was a community paper in an age that is forgetting, or doesn't know, what a community paper is. http://change-links.org/tag/john-johnson/ http://claysbeach.blogspot.com/2014/04/rest-in-peace-john-johnson.html
