Action for Grassroots Empowerment and Neighborhood Development Alternatives (AGENDA) "was established after the 1992 civil unrest in Los Angeles to address problems of poverty and underdevelopment in the inner-city communities of South Los Angeles. AGENDA is an independent, membership-based organization that seeks to reverse the trend of declining civic participation in poor, disadvantaged, and largely people of color communities through community organizing, public policy education, grassroots leadership development, and community advocacy.

"AGENDA develops processes and structures by which grassroots people become active participants in developing economic and social policies that better meet the needs of their communities." [1]
