About Westside Heron

Westside Heron is an inclusive local news and culture website centered in serving the traditional communities of West Los Angeles. We are dedicated to bringing news, perspectives, art, and all expressions you won’t find in current local Westside news sites.

Currently the Westside is inundated with segregationist and gentrification oriented media outlets. There are no true progressive publications here.  The closest publications that could be considered progressive still repress authentic Brown and Black voices, expressions, and visibility. Westside Heron is the antithesis to such models.

Our name is in reverence to our sacred bird relative, the Great Blue Heron of the California coast. We acknowledge we are all visitors to occupied and unceded Tongva/Kizh land.
