These particular sources advance the information by including ways in which this art movement has not only brought awareness, but has also created new ways of expression and created safer communities. These sources are all advocates for the conservation of this street art. By having these sources digitalized, they are finding ways to keep these stories and pieces of work moving with the world in the 21st century and beyond.

I am definitely interested in joining the conversation by exploring in what ways can we make these murals more accessible and visible to the public that does not live in Los Angeles. At a personal level, I want to look for murals with themes of queer latinidad now that we are living in a time period where these topics are being raised. It is exciting to think about the next generation of mural art activism in the Chicana/o community since we are living in a time where more people are talking about race. 

These historical digital sources reveal that many of the struggles that the community faced then are still happening today but in different forms and contexts.What can we do so that these things do not happen again? And to ensure that our murals and history are not washed off? These murals are more than art, they are collections of deep histories that have often been neglected by United States history classes. They are pieces of work that tell stories and are constant reminders of the hard working people and lively culture that Chicanas/os share.
