Gilbert is a lifelong resident of South Central Los Angeles and works within the Neighborhood Justice Network at Community Coalition. He was introduced to Community Coalition in 2009, which marked the last year he was incarcerated. Finding it very hard to gain sustainable, fulfilling employment and having to work many different odd jobs, Gilbert’s prayers were answered when he was presented the opportunity to work as a public servant and community organizer here at Community Coalition. Gilbert has led public safety campaigns and built many relationships with leaders and activists throughout South LA and across the nation. He is extremely proud of the work he has been able to accomplish at CoCo. Gilbert is married and has three sons.
