South Central LA is facing a housing
and economic crisis.


1. Community-Supported Development

Developers continue to propose projects like the 10 acre, $1 billion, luxury mega-development adjacent to the REEF on Broadway/Washington which would feature upscale restaurants, yoga studios, condos, and market-rate apartments. The project was planned and designed WITHOUT meaningful community engagement.

2. Equitable Development Policy

We call on elected officials and city decision-makers to listen to the needs of local residents' craft policies to prioritize equitable economic development, net gain affordable housing, and strong environmental health standards.
