Glauz Diego

“Growing up in South Los Angeles I always thought the schools I attended were just like any other schools in LAUSD. It wasn’t until I joined Community Coalition’s youth program (South Central Youth Empowered through Action) that I realized the inequity our schools faced. It was at that moment that I learned the power youth had to organize and demand change.”

Glauz’s long history with Community Coalition began in 1998 as a member of the organization’s youth program. As a youth leader he was involved in campaigns that exposed LAUSD’s failure to provide adequate counselors and college prep courses to South LA Schools. After graduating from Cal State LA with a B.A. in Graphic Design, Glauz returned to Community Coalition to merge his passion for design and social justice. In 2010 he played a key role in leading Community Coalition’s marketing and rebranding campaign. Glauz has also created impactful infographics that have gone viral and been published by, and Forbes,
