Alliance for a Better Community
MISSION STATEMENT: Alliance for a Better Community is advancing social, economic, racial equity and justice for the Latino/a community and the Los Angeles region through power building and policy advocacy.
ABOUT US: The Alliance for a Better Community was formed in the mid-1990s to address issues facing Los Angeles’ Latino/a community. For many years, the organization operated as a “Tuesday Morning Breakfast Club” and managed various regional matters through personal and organizational networks and resources. While they successfully redressed many of the policy challenges facing Latino/a communities in Los Angeles, they ultimately decided that L.A. needed an organization to serve as a voice for the community. The Tuesday Morning Breakfast Club formed ABC to support the Latino/a agenda within City Hall, the County, LAUSD, the media, and other public or influential entities. Today, ABC is a community-based Latino/a advocacy organization committed to addressing education, civic engagement, economic prosperity, and health issues.
