During the pandemic, South LA was one of the most impacted areas in Los Angeles County, consequently the response and recovery needs to be proportional, equitable, and a coordinated effort on behalf of service providers, community members, philanthropy, and local government. This report provides deep insight into the impact of COVID, and data-driven recommendations for recovery.
The South LA community has always been resilient with a rich history of culture and a cultural center. To recover from decades of disinvestment compounded by the pandemic, an equitable long-term strategy is needed to remove barriers to prosperity.
These challenges call for a response beyond simply returning to a pre-pandemic state. “Resilience & Rebuilding: Recommendations for an Equitable Recovery from COVID-19 in South Los Angeles.” Special thanks to Cedars-Sinai for the funding for this groundbreaking project and to the USC Price Center for Social Innovation for spearheading this important research report.
