Compton Mayor Aja Brown made history as the City’s youngest elected Mayor at the age of 31. A national trailblazer, Mayor Brown's ‘New Vision for Compton’ is a revitalization strategy centered on 12 key principles that focus on family values, quality of life, economic development and infrastructural growth.
Mayor Brown is focused on improving outcomes through policy reform, innovation and strategic partnerships. She proudly serves the Citizens of Compton by developing and implementing public policies that facilitate guided growth through the protection of community assets.
Since her June 2013 induction, Mayor Brown has launched several community initiatives and policy changes aimed at reducing crime by tackling tough issues such as gang intervention, and domestic human trafficking head on. The Mayor’s efforts to fortify the City have been instrumental in eliminating hourly motel rentals and condemning businesses that incubate human trafficking, and other illicit activity. In June 2014, Mayor Brown started Compton Empowered, a community based gang reduction and intervention initiative focused on empowering ex-gang members to take back their neighborhoods through peace treaties, unity activities and employment opportunities. The efforts of Mayor Brown and participating community members resulted in a 50% decrease in gang related homicides during the first six months of implementation, and continues to be the leading agency of community driven safety reform throughout the City.
Mayor Brown actively works to reduce the unemployment rate in Compton from 18% (July 2013) to 11.8% (February 2015) through the implementation of industry-specific vocational training programs, while successfully attracting new companies and employment to the City. The Mayor has executed policy that improves access to Compton City employment through the First Source Hiring Agreement, adopted in October 2013, which mandates 35 percent local hiring for city assisted and funded projects that often times yield neighborhood improvement.
Mayor Brown is the recipient of the 2015 Brave Ones Leadership Award (Leadercast) and was awarded the prestigious University of Southern California 2014 Young Alumni Merit Award. Mayor Brown also serves on the California State Delta Stewardship Council, a governing body created by legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. Mayor Brown has also led young women and girls empowerment efforts with her esteemed partnership with Girls Fly!, a global initiative geared at exposing young women and girls to careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
Mayor Brown has received a lauded number of honors, including the National Action Network Martin Luther King Award, for her youth, women’s rights, and socio-economic equality work in advocacy. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Policy, Urban Planning and Development, along with a Master’s degree in Urban Planning with a concentration in Economic Development from the University of Southern California. She is married to her best friend of 14 years, Van Brown.
