The Committee for Greater LA came together to demonstrate what can happen when civic leaders align to a north star of pursuing racial and economic equity through system change.

Funded by philanthropy, the independent “No Going Back” report contains groundbreaking data and context about how COVID lifted the veil of structural racism in Los Angeles; guiding principles to reinvent and reimagine a more equitable L.A.; and a policy blueprint for system change.

Please join us in making the #NoGoingBackLA promise, a pledge that acknowledges the way we were doing things before was broken, and a shared commitment to build a more inclusive and equitable Los Angeles.

This is a wake-up call to stand in solidarity with one another, value Black lives, treasure immigrant families, declare homelessness unacceptable and more.

This is about the collective good, about caring for each other and finding common ground. We won’t agree on everything, but we agree on a commitment to building more equitable systems.

The intersectionality of this work is critical. We are all interconnected, and we must move forward together without being limited by current systems or structures.

This is a launching point, a milestone in a much bigger journey: an opportunity to lay out a new way to approach problems in our region: with data as the most important measure of success, without relying on existing structures and funding streams to determine how we solve a problem, and with a focus on racial equity as one of the most important ways to determine what success looks like.

Join us in making a promise to build a more equitable Los Angeles, and learn how you can help make that promise a reality.
