2017 Annual Awards Dinner

On behalf of InnerCity Struggle (ICS), we would like to invite you to join us for our 14th Annual Awards Dinner and Celebration. We are excited to announce that the event will recognize amazing grassroots leaders. The event will take place on October 5, 2017 at The Center at Cathedral Plaza in Downtown Los Angeles. The event will also highlight the organization’s efforts in working with youth and community residents in the Eastside of Los Angeles for the past 23 years to promote safe, healthy and non-violent communities.

ICS strongly believes in giving all sectors of our community the authentic opportunity to thrive, and we believe access to a quality public education leads to an improved quality of life for all Eastside residents.

Proceeds from the celebration will continue to support ICS’s efforts to organize youth and families and develop their skills to be leaders for transformation in our communities. Recent changes secured include increasing graduation and college-going rates for area youth, plus elevating the civic engagement of residents through our programs. In 2016, the Eastside high school graduation rate reached a historic 80% – from the low-point of 44% in 2005. Just this year, ICS youth and parent leaders, working with allies, secured the construction of new wellness centers for Roosevelt and Mendez high schools.

Join us for an evening of entertainment, art, and inspiration!
