We help transform communities that struggle with violence by empowering people who live there to be the change they envision.
Brian Center is the Executive Director of A Better LA, a non-profit dedicated to empowering people who live and work in inner-cities to be the change they envision. A former business attorney, Mr. Center spent the past 10 years involved in a wide array of experiences in government and the non-profit arena, including participating in gang task forces with law enforcement; leading efforts to reform the juvenile justice system; acting as the point person on issues pertaining to ex-offenders re-entering society from jail; and spending thousands of hours in gang communities to learn from those who live with the impact of violence on a daily basis.
