Rebuild LA (RLA) was a non-profit corporation formed immediately after the L.A. civil disturbances of April 29-30, 1992, when Mayor Tom Bradley and Governor Pete Wilson asked Peter Ueberroth to lead a community-wide effort to "restore the health and vitality of Los Angeles." The organization was the most extensive effort in Los Angeles to combat the social ills that helped lead to the Los Angeles riots of 1992 that followed the acquittal of Los Angeles police officers in the beating of African-American Rodney King.
