    Downtown Crenshaw Rising

    Los Angeles’ Black community has a right to own its future. There is a national groundswell of financial support for Black community ownership of the 40 Acre Crenshaw Mall. The people of Crenshaw have been organizing for a moment like this for decades. Securing this mall will provide a new model of economic development that uplifts instead of uproots the community. Our vision is literal community ownership that will include affordable housing, locally owned commercial space, a 6-acre park, and an arts and music center.
