InnerCity Struggle is moving! We are excited to announce that we have recently purchased a building in Boyle Heights for InnerCity Struggle’s permanent home! In the meantime, we will be moving to a temporary location at the former East Los Angeles Community Corporation office at 530 South Boyle Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90033 while our future home is being renovated to serve as an inter-generational community organizing center.

About Us

Since 1994, InnerCity Struggle (ICS) has worked with youth, families and community residents to promote safe, healthy and non-violent communities in the Eastside.

We organize youth and families in Boyle Heights, unincorporated East Los Angeles, El Sereno and Lincoln Heights to work together for social and educational justice. InnerCity Struggle provides positive after-school programs for students to become involved in supporting our schools to succeed.

We have empowered students to reach their family's dream of college. The work of InnerCity Struggle demonstrates that youth and parents working together are a powerful force for improving their communities and making real change.

InnerCity Struggle has also educated and empowered thousands of Eastside voters to be heard at the ballot box on critical issues impacting our communities.
