Culver City Boys or Culver City 13 is a Mexican-American street gang from Culver City and has expanded to other cities such as Santa Monica, Venice and San Gabriel Valley

According to a Los Angeles City Beat article, by 2003, many Culver City Boyz left the housing projects due to strict rules that evict gang members and increased police presence.[1] The gang is under a civil injunction enforced by the LAPD which restricts gang members' activity within a defined boundary surrounding the projects.[2] However, the gang remains active, as the constitutionality of the injunction has been tested. Alleged members of the gang settled a class action suit over the practice of enforcing curfews for suspected gang members with the City of Los Angeles for $30 million.[3][4]

Despite that Culver City Boys is a sureño gang, their colors are red, the colors the Norteños wear, but CCB shows no affiliation to either Norteños or Nuestra Familia.
