Dome Village has become well known in downtown Los Angeles for their skating activism in support of non-violence, inner-city youth and the National campaign to end homelessness.
Dome Village has sponsored popular after–school skating clubs for
middle-school and elementary school age children and has been able to distribute scores of donated skates to inner city youth and to homeless Dome Village members through the "Wheel of Giving" program coordinated by Ted Hayes and Ronda Flanzbaum.
Skate program participants benefit not only by the physical fitness, conditioning and social interaction that skating brings, but also from the positive energy sparked by skate programs for good social causes.
Dome Village members have skated in yearly “Skate Against Violence” campaigns, local parades and have organized skate events throughout “skid row” to bring hope and wide publicity to homeless issues.
