Support your source for local news!
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

South Los Angeles is about more than just crime, gangs and drugs. In fact there are dozens of non-profits and community programs in South L.A. working to improve the environment and offer after-school programs and enriching educational alternatives.

One such nonprofit, Community Coalition has a simple ask today: Give your vote on this Facebook page and Community Coalition could win a van to help transport after-school program participants to its center in South L.A. The contest runs until 9 p.m. local time and there are only a few other non-profits in the running (all ex-L.A.) so go on and give a click!

And contrary to popular belief, not all news reporting paints a bad picture of the neighborhood (see Intersections South L.A.).
