Community Coalition brings a music festival to South Los Angeles
Community Coalition is hosting its 4th Annual Power Fest on August 29th, 2015. Power Fest is the premier political music festival that attracts thousands of families from South Los Angeles in a day of celebration, empowerment, and education. Power Fest takes place in Martin Luther King Jr. Park in the historic King Estates neighborhood of South Los Angeles. Over the past five years, the neighborhood has transformed through a series of community-led activities including community clean ups, partnerships with local businesses, and civic engagement. Through these activities Community Coalition has successfully renovated the park, opened its recreation center, increased park programming, and provided the neighborhood with a weekly produce stand that offers high quality, organic produce. Through these efforts, Community Coalition has successfully helped to transform the park and neighborhood into a vibrant, thriving and safe space for families to bring their children and participate in community activities.
