It is the mission and purpose in this life for Brad Carson to help create safe communities by breaking the cycle of the repeat criminal offender and the intergenerational gang violence. How? By addressing the spiritual, social, and economic causes. It is my philosophy that through jobs and education the cycle of the repeat criminal offender and the intergenerational gang violence can be broken and the quality of life issues achieved.

As a Deputy Probation Officer for the past 21 years, Brad as helped create, develop, and implement numerous programs and services to help meet the needs of the target population. In 1987, Brad was selected to serve on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisor Kenneth Hahn’s Gang Committee, which created the Gang Alternative Prevention Program (GAPP). In 1989, Brad was assigned to the “Venice Oakwood Project” where he was involved in community –base policing with the multi-agency F.A.L.C.O.N. unit. He initiated and mediated the gang truce in Venice/Oakwood (LA’s worst gang war) in 1994. He brokered the “Gang Cease-Fire” between the VSLC in Venice and the CC Boys in the Mar Vista Gardens Housing Project in 1997. Brad helped create partnerships, coalitions, and collaborations with political, corporate, faith-base, and community-base agencies, which serviced the Venice area.

In 2000, Brad was assigned to the “Probation –To- Work” pilot project program in the East San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles. The “Probation-To-Work” pilot project was a public/private partnership between the Probation Department and Communities in Schools, SFV.Inc. and Mission College WorkSource One-Stop Center, and the Sun Valley WorkSource One-Stop Center. In 2002, Brad was given countywide authority in his current role as “The Employment Resource Coordinator”.

Since July 2002, Mr. Carson has been working as the Adult Field Services Bureaus Employment Resource Coordinator (ERC). The goal and the intent of the ERC position is to provide information and assistance to probationers in the form of referrals to vocational training and employment readiness programs, and to connect probationers to employers. In 2005, Mr. Carson conducted one-on-one Career Development Motivation Orientations to 332 new adult probationers from Probation Area Offices in South Central Los Angeles. Of the 332 probationers, 52 of them obtained employment within the next monthly reporting period. Mr. Carson completed the monthly “Job Talk” newsletter that was made available to the over 4,500 Probation staff. Additionally, Mr. Carson was the “driving force” behind the Countywide Criminal Justice Coordinating Committee’s four Ex-Offender Job and Resource Fairs, and the two Business/Employers Symposiums that were sponsored by the Inter-Agency Gang Task Force.

As the Board President of Venice Community Housing Corporation, Brad Carson helped expand the vision and policies of the non-profit organization in order to initiate local hiring, training, and education of high-risk offenders in the actual development of building affordable housing in their communities. Brad Carson developed a task force called “The Ad Hoc Committee to Enforce At-Risk Youth Employment on Proposition A” (now known as Jobs Create Peace Coalition). As a result of this effort, Brad was the first to bring together both Black and Brown Gang Truce Peacemakers to obtain a $54 million set-aside for “at-risk” youth employment on a major public works project. Accordingly, 21,346 “at-risk” youth worked 2,755,696 hours as of the “ Regional Park and Open Space District’s” report dated July 17, 2008.

Brad also negotiated the 10% set-aside for “at-risk” employment in the Project Labor Agreement at the Playa Vista development. The Playa Vista development is the largest ($7 Billion) private mixed-use development in the United States. Brad Carson is an original member of the Playa Vista Jobs Task Force. Brad played a major role in the design, development, and implementation of the PVJOBS program. Brad still oversees the implementation of the program as a Board member of the non-profit corporation PVJOBS.

Brad Carson is a licensed General Contractor. As a General Contractor, Brad builds affordable housing while at the same time employs and develops the life skills of the “at-risk/gang member”. Brad as a social-entrepreneur utilizes these projects for a pre-apprenticeship program, and then sells the house to low-moderate income homeowners or non-profit corporations for no money down and no closing cost. Brad is also a partner owner of the “At-Risk Youth General Labor Corporation (ARY)”. The ARY did a lot of the clean-up work at the Playa Vista Development and hired as well as trained/supervised most of the “gang-members” at the site.

In 2006, Brad Carson was a co-founding member of the United Job Creation Council which is a strategic alliance forged through the Anchor of Hope Ministry (Jean Franklin, under the auspices of Bishop Noel Jones, Senior Pastor of City of Refuge Church) and the Jobs Create Peace Coalition. On April 23, 2008, UJCC reached its two-year set goal when the historic milestone of the “CRA-LA Construction Careers Policy” was unanimously passed by the LA City Council and signed by the Mayor.

On October 21, 2008, Brad Carson was moved in order to help set-up and implement another first of its kind pilot program called “ The Day Reporting Center (DRC)”. The DRC is where male re-entry probationers 18-25 years of age, gang-members that are high-risk offenders, and resides in South Central LA, reports daily for “wraparound” network services.

Brad Carson has received numerous awards including “Employee of the Year” from the Chief Probation Officers of California. He received the first “Community Hero Award” from the Season for Nonviolence honoring the spirit of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King. He was honored at L.A. Dodger Stadium receiving the “Hometown Hero” award in memory of Jackie Robinson as a barrier breaker.

Brad Carson is the author of a meditative daily devotional book and CD called “Nothing But The Word”. He is a licensed credentialed ordained minister of the gospel certified under the “Western Evangelical Association”. He has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Southern California College. He was born and raised in Los Angeles. He has been married for 23 years, and has three beautiful children.

Experience and Qualifications:
• 19 years experience as a community base Probation Officer
• Demonstrated ability in gang prevention, intervention, suppression, and mediation.
• Demonstrated ability in community organizing, and coalition building
• Working knowledge base of non-profit, public and private sector management and policies
• Demonstrated ability to affect policies and outcomes at the local, state, or federal level
• Demonstrated ability to design and implement effective programs resulting in job creation and retention for the target population.

The Brad Carson Story - Parts 1, 2, and 3 (The Continuing Legacy of Dr. George Kozmetsky and GBI) as to the Revitalization of the Los Angeles Economy


It was a pleasure speaking with you at length earlier today regarding production, promotion and management of “The Brad Carson Story” Parts 1, 2 &; 3, as discussed and described in previous pre-production meetings (copy and paste this link to browser:


The most time- and cost-effective method for the City of Los Angeles to capture both Stimulus Package and Innovation Award funding PLUS revitalize travel and tourism so important for “Hollywood” “Inglewood/LAX” and the entire Southern California Region by engaging Sister Cities International communities worldwide is to fund “The Brad Carson Story 1-3” as its virtual, media and digital “Ambassador” is to subsidize the 3-part production into docudrama/reality tv/dvd/games, as quickly as possible.


The Brad Carson Story Part 1

According to investigations conducted by federal, state, county and municipal and private agencies and individuals, broadcasts by Los Angeles television stations, publications including “The Truce”, the issuance of numerous awards and commendations, and summarized in the “On The Air” show moderated by Tonia McDonald, with Paul McDonald as Executive Producer for Global Business Incubation Inc, Brad Carson, almost singlehandedly, forged a collaboration among “gangs” that brought to close a “race war” in the Oakwood section of Venice, California that, at its height, wounded almost 100 people, mostly non-gang members, over a 90 day period in 1994 – that is still in effect now – almost 15 years later.

From 1994 through 2008, Brad Carson, working with 100 other faith-based organizations (the “collective”) and the labor union, used “set-asides” to employ “at risk” youth aged 18 – 24 (Jobs Create Peace) that successfully processed over 1,000 ex-felons into well-paying union jobs, in major CRA construction contracts, including the $7 Billion Playa Vista project, and contributed to a reduction in the recidivism rate from 70% to 5% or less

Working through Jobs Create Peace (JCP), United Jobs Creation Council (UJCC), and his own construction company, Brad worked with Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villagairosa and City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo (using the city’s drug abatement process) to acquire, and employ, through the graduates of the JCP/Labor Union’s “at risk” youth training program to successfully re-model former “crack houses” that became “dream homes” for first-time home buying low income families, subsidized by the City of Los Angeles.

The Brad Carson Story – Part 2

In 2008, Brad, the Union, the “collective”, and several hundred youth held a Prayer Rally to influence the Los Angeles City Council to PERMANENTLY include a “set aside” for ALL CRA CONTRACTS awarded to implement the Jobs Create Peace paradigm throughout the City of Los Angeles.

The law was passed with a unanimous vote by the Los Angeles City Council, and is in effect for the CRA-LA/ULI-LA $5 Billion Jordan Downs/Watts redevelopment project (

The Brad Carson Story – Part 3 / Continuing the Legacy of Dr. George Kozmetsky / “Privatizing the Set-Aside through Community Wealth Creators Business Incubation Hubs”

Through his work with the Los Angeles County Probation Department (for the “South Los Angeles” area), Brad has actively championed and implemented many of the “Ten Smart Teams” and “Zero Time” principles and protocols developed by the late Dr. George Kozmetsky –[Chairman Emeritus of Global Business Incubation, Inc. Founder of Teledyne, and Founding Director of the world-famous IC2 Institute, University of Texas at Austin] and Dr. Raymond Yeh [Loyola Marymount University], through mentorship training still championed by Global Business Incubation, Inc.’s Chief Researcher, Paul McDonald, President, Tonia McDonald, and current Chairman, Lou Myers.

Mayor Anthony Villagairosa, the Los Angeles City Council and the CRA/LA are now working hard to capture Stimulus Package funding from the Obama Administration.

Faced with both the $2 Billion Hollywood Redevelopment Project and the $5 Billion CRA/LA South Los Angeles Redevelopment Projects, Brad intends continuing the Legacy of Dr. George Kozmetsky to support their efforts by replicating the successful Jobs Create Peace/Labor Union/CRA/Faith Based Institutions collaboration to capture “set asides” for “at risk youth” in “distressed communities” AND by employing Dr. Kozmetsky’s Community Wealth Creators Business Incubation Hubs to “privatize”, capture, monetize and sustain local tax rolls and community [residential and commercial property] ownership in targeted areas, utilizing new media, digital marketing and construction training programs, platforms and protocols.


At the urging of Global Business Incubation’s Zero Time Solutions Facilitator, Brad will also be encouraging Mayor Villagairosa to activate and monetize Sister Cities International infrastructure to transmutate the benefits enjoyed in Los Angeles to empower communities worldwide with by replicating the “Community Wealth Creators Business Incubation Hubs” in NEW Sister Cities International relationships with cities as diverse as Dakar, Senegal (joining Washington, D.C.) and Hamilton, Bermuda (affording Los Angeles the opportunity to become the first “twinning” city, along with [proposed] Las Vegas], capturing worldwide attention and stimulating travel, tourism and Direct Foreign Investment in support of the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals 2015 [hosted by Dakar, Senegal in 2009].

United Nations Global Compact Overview

The UN Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. By doing so, business, as a primary driver of globalization, can help ensure that markets, commerce, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies everywhere.

As social, political and economic challenges (and opportunities) — whether occurring at home or in other regions — affect business more than ever before, many companies recognize the need to collaborate and partner with governments, civil society, labour and the United Nations.

This ever-increasing understanding is reflected in the Global Compact's rapid growth. With over 8700 corporate participants and other stakeholders from over 130 countries, it is the largest voluntary corporate responsibility initiative in the world.

Endorsed by chief executives, the Global Compact is a practical framework for the development, implementation, and disclosure of sustainability policies and practices, offering participants a wide spectrum of workstreams, management tools and resources — all designed to help advance sustainable business models and markets. (See How to Participate.)

Overall, the Global Compact pursues two complementary objectives:

Mainstream the ten principles in business activities around the world

Catalyze actions in support of broader UN goals, including the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)

With these objectives in mind, the Global Compact has shaped an initiative that provides collaborative solutions to the most fundamental challenges facing both business and society. The initiative seeks to combine the best properties of the UN, such as moral authority and convening power, with the private sector’s solution-finding strengths, and the expertise and capacities of a range of key stakeholders.

The Global Compact is global and local; private and public; voluntary yet accountable.

The benefits of engagement include the following:

Adopting an established and globally recognized policy framework for the development, implementation, and disclosure of environmental, social, and governance policies and practices.

Sharing best and emerging practices to advance practical solutions and strategies to common challenges.

Advancing sustainability solutions in partnership with a range of stakeholders, including UN agencies, governments, civil society, labour, and other non-business interests.

Linking business units and subsidiaries across the value chain with the Global Compact's Local Networks around the world — many of these in developing and emerging markets.

Accessing the United Nations' extensive knowledge of and experience with sustainability and development issues.

Utilizing UN Global Compact management tools and resources, and the opportunity to engage in specialized workstreams in the environmental, social and governance realms.

A more detailed analysis of the benefits of participation in the Global Compact can be found in The Importance of Voluntarism — which also focuses on the importance of the Global Compact as a complement rather than substitute for regulatory regimes

Finally, the Global Compact incorporates a transparency and accountability policy known as the Communication on Progress (COP). The annual posting of a COP is an important demonstration of a participant's commitment to the UN Global Compact and its principles. Participating companies are required to follow this policy, as a commitment to transparency and disclosure is critical to the success of the initiative. Failure to communicate will result in a change in participant status and possible expulsion.

In summary, the Global Compact exists to assist the private sector in the management of increasingly complex risks and opportunities in the environmental, social and governance realms, seeking to embed markets and societies with universal principles and values for the benefit of all.
