The Committee for GREATER LA...

The Committee for Greater LA assembled civic leaders at the start of the COVID pandemic to prioritize the recovery of LA County’s most marginalized communities.

We are a cross-sectoral group of Angelenos who share a vision that our region’s response to the COVID pandemic can advance systems change and dismantle the institutions and policies that have perpetuated institutional racism.

The Report

In September 2020, we released a comprehensive, landmark report, in partnership with UCLA and USC, No Going Back: Together for an Equitable and Inclusive Los Angeles.

No Going Back LA evolved from this report into an ongoing agenda for systems change powered by the Committee for Greater LA.

Our goal is sweeping systems change to ensure vulnerable and marginalized communities will be better off than they were before the crisis – there is #NoGoingBackLA.

“ We propose a sweeping regional agenda for system change. ”
