Disrupting Barriers For People In NeedGUERRILLA COMMUNITY MOVEMENT
A community of leaders from all walks of life creating new “recipes” of services and programs to empower both our local communities as well as individuals in need.
We believe that our problems exist due to an imbalance in our social values and connections and need to focus on a stacking approach to our problems in joint community efforts to empower networks of individuals to resolve them together.
The K.W. LEE SPIRIT AWARD
GCM is proud to share our participation in the last K.W. Lee Center for Leadership summer program. We were able to support their powerful and inspiring students in learning about and implementing solutions to Food Security in the Los Angeles area.
We are so excited and honored to announce that we have been selected to receive an award at the K.W. Lee Center for Leadership’s 17th Annual Dinner & Silent Auction for our work with their students.
Celebrate with us on December 1, Thursday, in Korea Town at Yong Su San for a night of community awareness. We’ll be having dinner, hearing some of our community youth speak as well as our GCM producers, and participating in a silent auction to help LA youth through K.W. Lee’s programs. 3GC and Pandoblox will be sponsoring a table for the GCM community.
We would love to have you join us for our in-person year-end closing event! RSVP Here..
HOT SAUCE FOR A CAUSE
The mission is to make the best quality sauces using “regeneratively” grown local produce with the passion found in the heart of people who want to help our at-risk youth and provide meaningful jobs along the way for at-risk gig economy workers. These hot sauces were inspired by a family recipe that everyone loves.
Over the past couple of projects in 2021 and 2022, GCM has been focusing on helping at-risk youth and food insecurity by starting a garden project at St. Joseph’s community center as well as mentoring some of Mar Diego’s youths in internships. We presented to K.W. Lee Foundation’s KAYLT kids, and they chose to partner with us over many other nonprofits’ efforts in LA. KAYLT (Korean American Youth Leaders in Training) is a program that provides an opportunity for Korean American students to develop leadership skills, explore their culture and history, experience hands-on community organizing, and develop a larger perspective of themselves in relation to their own community as well as the larger public arena!

Our Founding Story
We started as GMM; Guerrilla Mask Movement laser-focused on quality control, sourcing, and delivery of quality medical grade masks to frontline workers in need during the initial phases of the Covid pandemic when the mask supply chain in the US was faced with one of the worst supply chain disruptions its ever faced in history. Quickly we were joined by people from all walks of life to share important information impacting social and commercial concerns alike, months before they hit mainstream news, creating a brain trust of leaders with a passion to get ahead of our community problems.
Today we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the name Guerrilla Community Movement taking our initial grassroots, entrepreneurial approach to serving local community needs to be focused on regenerative concepts to bring back communities.
