Welcome to Boyle Heights Community Partners

Formerly Committee To Defend Roosevelt, founded in 2017

Our mission is to protect our Cultured and Treasured community of Boyle Heights from the continued dismissal and demolition of who we are, how we have come to where we are, and the future of our historical preservation with community stakeholders, organizations and groups.

As an underserved and neglected community we will continue with Historic Preservation Education, landmarking nominations and awareness, which is how we are founded, when fighting to preserve protect and prevent the demotion of our historic and beloved Roosevelt High School Historic R building and Auditorium.

Leading the path for historic preservation by landmarking historic places, places of significances, and the growth of our cultural arts, and creating Historic Preservation Overlay Zones (HPOZ), which have already been recognized by the City of Los Angeles Office of Historic Resources.

Continuing with our community workshops for stakeholders to learn, an overview of filing a Cultural Historic Monument application, and the importance of our history and historic preservation.

Understanding that innovation in architecture is with no doubt extremely important, but preserving and restoring our historic homes and buildings in Boyle Heights is important as these are monuments that reflect our history, and to help understand, and respect people who lived in different eras with different habits and traditions, and helped to mold Boyle Heights in the rich and cultural community that it has always been.

Engaging and educating our community in our rich history with historians providing our community with student learning programs on the importance of our history and our cultural, including the depth details on the demolition of our historic Roosevelt high school's R-Building and Auditorium, and the next steps for our Roosevelt High School Memorial Center dedicated to everything Roosevelt.
Boyle Heights Community Partners are not newcomers, we have generations of families, stories, history and cultural so that we can continue to move forward with education, historic preservation and working in creating our very own resource library for everything Boyle Heights.
