L A 2 0 5 0
LA2050 is rooted in the belief that Los Angeles should be shaped by and for Angelenos. Collectively, we must do better. We too are grieving, learning, listening, and taking action. We reaffirm our commitment to working with Angelenos to create a better, more equitable Los Angeles – one that empowers and embraces those whose voices have been suppressed or dismissed.
Following the lead of the My LA2050 finalists, we have decided to postpone the public voting portion of the My LA2050 Grants Challenge by one month. We are proud that our finalists are on the frontlines of advocacy and service in LA and want to support them in focusing their resources at this time. Voting will now take place from Monday, July 13 at 9 am to Monday, July 20 at 5 pm.
We've published a list of resources to assist Angelenos who are interested in learning more about anti-racism work and taking concrete action. It includes recommendations for reading and listening, ideas for how to get involved, and "know your rights" information for those who choose to protest.
