About Alliance for a Better Community: In 2000, a coalition of concerned Latino leaders created ABC as a result of a shared desire to establish a mechanism that responds to and shapes Latino policy in Los Angeles. Their mission was to ensure the Latino community experiences a rewarding and healthy quality of life. Given the demographics of L.A.'s population, these enhanced opportunities for the Latino community would create, in the long term, a better Los Angeles.
