Cecil Murray Center for Community Engagement

The Cecil Murray Center for Community Engagement draws on the social, spiritual and leadership capital of churches and the broader faith community to promote economic development and civic engagement in low-income neighborhoods. Specifically, the Center honors Rev. Cecil L “Chip” Murray’s three-decade-long legacy of working for the betterment of Los Angeles.

The Murray Center is currently training community leaders through the Faith Leaders Institute, a new capacity building and leadership transformation program in four neighborhoods: Boyle Heights, Long Beach, Santa Ana and South Los Angeles.
