Our goal

Aurelio Jose Barrera, a longtime L.A. Times photographer who helped the paper win a Pulitzer Prize with a groundbreaking series on Los Angeles’ overlooked Latino communities and in retirement launched a one-man crusade to deliver food to the homeless in those communities, passed away on October of 2020. Barrera was a young intern at The Times in 1983 when a team of Latino journalists banded together and brainstormed ideas for covering communities of color that they believed the paper wrote about only when there was crime, unrest or immigration raids. His family would like to honor Aurelio J. Barrera's memory by supporting students who are passionate about photography and social justice. A contribution to this fund will help a Hispanic high school senior or undergraduate student in California who is pursuing the arts.
