While working in the emergency room at Los Angeles County USC Hospital, Karen Bass witnessed the ravages that crack cocaine brought to the young men, women and children of the inner city. In response, she founded Community Coalition in 1990 to improve the quality of life in South Los Angeles, and she has served as its Executive Director ever since. The Community Coalition’s overall mission is to improve the quality of life in South Los Angeles by attempting to build a membership organization that is strong and influential enough to affect the decision-making process, including resource allocation.
