ADVOCACY:
22nd Street - Beginning in the early 1990’s the San Pedro Youth Coalition advocated for opening the old 20 acre tank farm at 22nd and Miner to the public. In 2003 and 2004, SPYC pressed for inclusion of a Sports Complex at the site as part of the waterfront redevelopment. Petition drives, press conferences and letter writing campaigns ensued. Ultimately, SPYC failed to achieve its vision of a Sports Complex at 22nd Street. Rather than disengage from the planning process because it did not get its way, SPYC stayed involved and worked side-by-side with other community leaders and organizations to open the land to the public. In 2008, the Port broke ground on construction of a 20 acre park at the site. SPYC is proud to have influenced the scope of the park to include over four acres of unobstructed flat grass for play. SPYC was invited by the Port to speak at the groundbreaking. SPYC continues to thank the Port for making this land available. SPYC will continue to advocate to preserve and expand sports facilities at other locations.

Knoll Hill - The San Pedro Youth Coalition is proud to have worked along side the Eastview Little League, the Port of Los Angeles, and Councilwoman Janice Hahn to bring little league baseball to Knoll Hill. With these facilities, children living nearest the waterfront have an opportunity to play Little League Baseball close to home. We must continue to work to provide and protect youth facilities so that they exist in close proximity to all of San Pedro’s children.
