The Centro Cultural de la Raza's mission is to create, preserve, promote and provide educational programming on Chicano, Mexicano, Latino and indigenous art and culture. But over the years, the Centro has struggled with leadership and financial problems. Now, there's an effort underway to revive the space and introduce new arts programming, exhibitions and events.

Monica Bernal, the Centro's treasurer and Ymoat Luna, vice-chair of the Centro's Arts Advisory Committee talk about the Centro's history and what the future might hold, Thursday on Midday Edition.
