South L.A.’s Community Coalition launched LAcivilunrest.org earlier this month with 20 commentary videos by different community leaders and activists, elected officials and residents who share their stories of the Civil Unrest erupted on South L.A. streets in 1992.

The site includes videos from L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, a local news anchor, community activists, residents and academics.

Community leaders, including U.S. Congresswoman Karen Bass, founded Community Coalition as a non-profit organization in 1990 in response to the 1980’s crack cocaine epidemic that devastated South LA.

To watch more videos from South L.A. community members on the Civil Unrest of 1992 visit LAcivilunrest.org.
