“I consider myself fortunate to have grown up post civil rights movement era in South Los Angeles. This was prior to the abandonment of good paying jobs in our community, and years before the civil unrest of 1992. I remain proud to call Los Angeles my home because I know that the only thing that is constant is change. I believe that Community Coalition is doing the work necessary to create the change that will enrich the lives of South Los Angeles residents so they will consider themselves fortunate as well.”
