The Committee for Greater LA came together earlier this year to understand the effects that COVID had on different populations throughout Los Angeles County. Business, philanthropy, labor, government and other community leaders held weekly data briefings on topics such as employment, housing and homelessness, youth and trauma, with COVID-19 as a throughline. Following the murder of George Floyd, the committee expanded its focus to takes in a comprehensive view of systemic racism—especially anti-Black racism.
The report combines wide-ranging data with a set of guiding principles to reinvent Los Angeles and a policy blueprint for system change. Its goal is to supply grassroots-driven movements with data and policy frameworks to drive that transformation. It covers ten issue areas with bright-line goals and more granular policy recommendations for each.
