About The Committee
For Greater LA
The goal of the Committee for Greater LA is to prepare a roadmap that civic and philanthropic leaders can use to inform specific actions they can implement to ensure that the populations and communities in Los Angeles County most impacted by COVID-19 are at the center of a recovery.
The report, a collaboration between the University of Southern California and the University of California-Los Angeles, will be released in early September. The report will recommend a data-driven advocacy agenda to address L.A.’s structural challenges that reinforce disparities. Led by researchers Manuel Pastor of USC and Gary Segura of UCLA, the report will use data to define L.A.’s structural breakdowns and offer a set of solutions to advance racial equity, increase accountability, and spark a broad civic conversation about L.A.’s future.
Ultimately, the Committee wants to ensure vulnerable and marginalized communities will be better off than they were before the crisis – there is no going back LA.
