We asked our My LA2050 Grants Challenge finalists to share how their proposals will shift due to the unprecedented circumstances of COVID-19. Their responses highlight the impressive resilience and determination of LA's social impact sector—from virtual tutoring and legal counseling to pop-up food banks. Learn more about how they're adapting.
Help us spread the word about the resources available to Angelenos in need. Check out our COVID-19 Resource Directory for the latest offerings, plus volunteer opportunities for those available to help.

We've also published a list of resources to assist those interested in anti-racism work. It includes recommendations for learning and suggestions for taking concrete action.
