    Fighting Racial, Economic, Social, and Food inequity through People. Place. Prosperity.

    OUR MISSION

    The South LA Cafe Community Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit affiliate of South LA Cafe aims to break the shackles of systemic oppression and inequality by creating, building, and empowering an equitable, healthy, and sustainable South Central community for all people. Our model focuses on the following three pillars.

    Lifting barriers to human rights and healthy ecosystems by creating access to resources and developing a social safety net.

    #2: PLACE: CREATING OUR COMMUNITY

    Rejecting cultural erasure and displacement by creating equitable and thriving community spaces and experiences.

    #3#: PROSPERITY: BUILDING OUR ECONOMY

    Combatting gentrification and corporate development by building a sustainable and self-determined local economy.
