    Why Not? Play in South LA

    Why Not? Play in South LA addresses play equity. In South LA, youth do not have the same access to sports programs as their more affluent peers. LA Promise Fund has partnered with NBA star Russell Westbrook to operate the Russell Westbrook Why Not? Academy in South LA, with a shared vision centered on the needs of the whole child, striving to support students as athletes, activists and academic achievers. LA2050 funding will support the “athletes” component of this vision, helping us to build a robust sports program.
