Lupe Romero

Lupe was born in Guadalajara Jalisco and was raised in South Central LA and has lived in the community for the past 30 years. Lupe led an after school program called “Youth Services” that provided support for students who were at risk by re-directing their attention to sports instead of street life. Lupe became interested in working at Community Coalition when he realized that CoCo shared his interest in using recreational programming to reduce violence among youth in his neighborhood.

Fun fact: I love to ride motorcycles and hang out with friends while listening to all kinds of music.
