“South LA’s Community Coalition works to move South Los Angeles away from drug and alcohol addiction, crime, violence and poverty through a strong network of individuals, civic leaders and other non- and for profit organizations. To fight off these issues, Community Coalition focuses on the root problem of current social and economic conditions.
Community Coalition has four pillars that tie into most, if not all of their activities: safer and healthier neighborhoods, keep families together, strengthen the current safety net, and transform education.”
