we are: a grass-roots, “community”-led effort

what we want: clean, safe, healthy streets


Starting in 2008, the SKID ROW BRIGADE choose to tackle one of the "greatest social disgraces" in the United States of America without any "funding or recognition". This is just one of the reasons the BRIGADE is the Greatest Volunteer Unit in Downtown Los Angeles.


The trash in these pictures would be multiplied a hundred times over  throughout the Skid Row Community if not for BRIGADE members sweeping up.

The BRIGADE choose to take matters into it's own hands and make the difference that needed to be made. PEOPLE HELPING THEMSELVES.

This went against everything that the "public" had been told about Skid Row.

OPERATION FACE-LIFT/SKID ROW was born and The SKID ROW BRIGADE lead the way.

The SKID ROW BRIGADE established a "new standard of living"a community where not even a cigarette butt could be found.

No longer should the community accept substandard living conditions which are not fit  for "animals".

But, this type of cleaning exposed the dirt and grime that has been embedded within the sidewalks and streets of Skid Row which have not seen a pressure-washer in decades.
