LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Twenty years after the L.A. riots, KCAL9 News is taking a look at the people and organizations that have addressed the civil unrest that catalyzed that event.

The Advancement Project was created in response to the riots and has been a major force behind LAPD police reform.

Connie Rice, who works with The Advancement Project, is credited as the architect of the City’s Gang Reduction Youth Development Program.

Rice spoke with KCAL9 News about the evolution of community/police relations since the riots and what lessons the city of Los Angeles has learned during that process.
