Formerly Committee To Defend Roosevelt, founded in 2017

Our mission is to protect our cultured and treasured community of Boyle Heights and the future of our history and historical preservation.

As an underserved community we will continue providing historic preservation education in addition to landmarking nominations to prevent further demotions of homes and buildings such as our beloved Roosevelt High School's historic R Building and Auditorium.

We aim to champion historic preservation by landmarking historic places, places of significance, growing our cultural arts presence and creating Historic Preservation Overlay Zones (HPOZ), which have already been recognized by the City of Los Angeles Office of Historic Resources.

Preserving and restoring our historic homes and buildings in Boyle Heights is important. These are monuments that reflect our history, and to help us understand those who lived in different eras and helped mold Boyle Heights into a cultural community.

We are engaging and educating our community on our rich history and as historians are providing student learning programs. Some of our programs will detail the demolition of our historic Roosevelt High School's R-Building and auditorium, and talk about the next steps to get our Roosevelt High School Learning Center up and running.
Boyle Heights Community Partners brings to the party generations of families, stories, history and culture to facilitate moving forward with education, historic preservation and working in creating our very own resource library for everything Boyle Heights.
