While the international image of Los Angeles remains one of glamour, glitz and wealth, the reality of South Los Angeles and it’s diverse communities remains one of depleting health and human services and over-militarized schools and neighborhoods due to structural racism. At the same time, South LA counts on the powerful resolve and creativity of its residents, its community-based organizations, social service providers and advocacy groups.

The South Los Angeles Building Health Communities (SLA-BHC) Hub is a collaborative of community partners working for low-income housing, transforming punitive school disciplinary policies, addressing health disparities for Black and Latino peoples, and much more.

The SLA-BHC partners are building youth leadership, training working class and immigrant communities in organizing and advocacy, providing holistic services for trans and queer people, and working to eliminate toxic environmental elements in our homes and communities.
