People’s Community Organization
for Reform and Empowerment (People’s CORE)

People’s CORE is a private non-profit organization. People’s CORE continues the work of the East/West Community Partnership, a project of the Asian American Drug Abuse Program, Inc., to conduct grassroots organizing in different Asian and Pacific Islander (API) communities in Los Angeles to help curb alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse. People’s CORE is committed to arouse, organize and mobilize the people on problems and issues affecting them. Currently, People’s CORE primarily operates in Central Los Angeles, particularly Echo Park/Silverlake and Lafayette Park areas, and in Long Beach, Carson and other areas in the South Bay.
