Slauson and Wall Project Development
Our board member and community leader Ms. Maritza Lopez has been a resident of the Slauson Corridor for over 40 years. Ms. Lopez has advocated for 10+ years for a community-oriented development at the Slauson & Wall site. She joined us for a visit with the potential developers of this site, and shared some words of hope.
“My neighbors and I have been waiting for many years to see this project finalized. My community needs affordable community controlled-homes.
But we also have the illusion to have a nice park for us to come together, bring our children and get  to know each other because there is no common space to socialize & build community. In my 40 years here, we have gone through many ups and downs, but we don’t lose hope and want to see our vision become a reality.”  

Stay tuned about the advocacy efforts of TRUST South L.A for a community rooted development at Slauson & Wall.
