Welcome

We are a grassroots group of Crenshaw Blvd stakeholders, seeking a Crenshaw-LAX Line designed in the manner desired by the community: underground on Crenshaw Blvd with a Leimert Park Village subway station.

It is our hope that this website will be an informative and engaging vehicle that helps empower stakeholders directly impacted by MTA’s Crenshaw-LAX Light Rail Line, and all who are concerned. For a quick overview of the issue, view our PowerPoint presentation created in preparation of “The Decision,” which can be found on the Issues page.

Before you leave our webhome, be sure to connect with us a variety of ways so we can keep you up to date on this important project by signing up for our email updates, becoming a Fan of our Facebook page, and following us on Twitter.

    Summer of Resistance: Community Town Halls on Gentrification

    The Crenshaw community is under attack from gentrification, speculators and developers who want to profit off the community WE built and the public investments WE fought for to push us out. As housing prices go through the roof, major projects and programs are being pushed by our public agencies and politicians that intend to fast track the displacement and cultural erasure of Los Angeles' Black community. THIS IS A CLARION CALL TO ACTION! We are at war. This is socio-economic-cultural warfare (even if some would like you to deny it.) The Crenshaw Subway Coalition is leading a community education program: "Summer of Resistance: Community Town Halls on Gentrification." This series of five meetings will highlight six of the biggest most impactful projects/programs the community faces today. It is our hope that community voices, particularly the most vulnerable, will rise up and be heard, long-time freedom fighters will focus on this issue, and demands will be made for all institutional leaders and in particular our Black elected officials to "GET RIGHT OR GET TO PACKING!" All meetings (except one) will take place at our brand new headquarters The Umoja Center in Leimert Park Village: 3347 W. 43rd Street. Each will have a central topic of conversation, but will briefly reference other topics at each. Take a look at the list of meetings below, and follow the links to RSVP.
