As the income gap in the United States continues to grow, exacerbated on the lines of race, ethnicity, and immigration status, these differences lead to a profound disparity in education, human services, and life trajectories. Our solution, however, begins with us. We are building local coalitions of resident leaders. We are advocating for the transformational improvement of our built environment, so that our children and families may thrive.
We are determined to transform our community from a known, decades-old entrenched gang territory, to one that welcomes families of all races, ethnicities, and immigration status. A community where all families have access to live healthy lives. By standing with community, we are helping to build a broader coalition of community leaders, government agencies, and non-profit organizations embracing to support this resident led effort.
