On April 29, 1992, after a jury acquitted four white Los Angeles police officers who had been videotaped beating black motorist Rodney King, the city exploded into riots. Six days later, over $1 billion in property damage had occurred—mostly in underserved neighborhoods.
The riots were a protest not just against racial discrimination and police violence, but against a system that protects the privileged and keeps the poor in their place. Operation HOPE was founded to break down that barrier between privileged and poor.
Today, HOPE is America’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to financial literacy and economic empowerment. We’ve reached over 1.2 million individuals in 70 U.S. cities, South Africa and Haiti.
About Operation HOPE
