Magic Johnson Bridgescape comes to Lawndale
We are proud to announce that LCDC has partnered with Magic Johnson Bridgescape, an organization dedicated to providing students who have dropped out, or are at-risk of dropping out of school, with a free alternative path to earn a high school diploma in an environment that fits their schedule, life circumstances and learning needs.

Celebrate The Legacy With Us
As we celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. we continue to build on his work in fair housing advocacy through the development of the MLK Historic Memorial District. This area includes a
state-of-the-art, green, multi-unit property with affordable housing, that also has four commercial spaces,
the MLK Fair Housing Exhibit Center, and houses 45 families. It was completed in January 2011.

Since 1987, LCDC has worked to revitalize the Lawndale community through Community Organizing, Youth Education and Real Estate Development. To accomplish this mission, we rely on partnerships with individuals, foundations, corporations and government entities that share our commitment to this work.
