South L.A. Community Coalition Could Win a Van with Your Help

via facebook.

Freely accessible local news is vital. Please power our reporters and help keep us independent with a donation today.

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.).
