Leimert Park: Do you have a story for KPCC's First Person?

What does it take to lead a healthy life? How do we build a healthy community? We know we need good clinics and hospitals staffed by skilled professionals to keep us healthy and and treat us when we're not. But it takes a lot more than that. A healthy community has good schools, plentiful park space, healthy food options, minimal pollution, few or no gangs.Sharing experiences is one way to build a healthier community.

KPCC: South Los Angeles city council candidates work to mobilize voters for May runoff election

There’s been considerable civic angst about the low voter turnout in L.A.’s March 5 primary, which was just 20 percent. In some parts of the city, such as Council District 9 in South L.A., it was even lower. Only 15 percent of the district’s registered voters came out for the primary, so both campaigns are mobilizing to get a bigger turnout for the May 21 runoff. Each is taking a different approach. In the case of Ana Cubas, campaign volunteer Evelia Palmero says going door-to-door is an…See More

KPCC asks: Have you been priced out of a neighborhood?

L.A. neighborhoods are changing: Demographics shift. Businesses open and shutter. Residents are forced to adapt and, sometimes, move. In February, KPCC's Crawford Family Forum went to Highland Park—a rapidly changing neighborhood—to hold an an off-site conversation focused on "Changing Neighborhoods: Tradition, Transition, and Gentrification in L.A."
