Research Projects

Million Dollar Hoods

  • Million Dollar Hoods (Bunche) - New signature research project housed at the Bunche Center that tracks leading causes of arrest in Los Angeles County. Counters popular misunderstanding that incarceration advances public safety by removing violent and serious offenders from the streets. Provides data on the high cost of jailing LA County residents who are the most economically vulnerable, geographically isolated, and racially marginalized populations.
  • UCLA Mapping Indigenous LA (AISC) - aims to uncover and highlight the multiple layers of indigenous Los Angeles through a story-mapping project with youth, community leaders, and elders from indigenous communities throughout the city.
  • BESOL Reports (AASC) - UCLA Asian American Studies Center Policy Reports Developed for the Ford Foundation's Building Economic Security Over a Lifetime Initiative (BESOL)
  • Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA (CSRC) - The UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center (CSRC) is one of five planning partners for Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a Getty Foundation Initiative that awarded grants to arts institutions across Southern California for research and planning of an ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art. CSRC received major support for the exhibition Home—So Different, So Appealing on view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and is collaborating on two additional exhibitions: LA RAZA at the Autry Museum of the American West, and Laura Aguilar: Show and Tell at the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College.
