City of Los Angeles elected officials, departments, and even other Neighborhood Councils are frequently looking for an NC contact person to work with on a particular subject matter. During the year, agencies will ask EmpowerLA for Liaison contact information for the purpose of sending invitations to meetings or events of interest, to receive feedback, or simply to request help in sharing information with NCs and stakeholders. Your willingness to be that contact person will help your Neighborhood Council improve government responsiveness to your community’s needs. |

Neighborhood Councils from throughout the city come together regularly, sometimes by region, sometimes by issue, sometimes citywide, and always with a louder representative voice. Neighborhood Councils have significant opportunities to work with regional and citywide organizations in addressing issues, taking positions, and engaging their communities and City Hall. At the same time, LA’s elected officials and department leaders also have several powerful opportunities to engage Neighborhood Councils by connecting with the many Alliances and Coalitions

  • Alliance of River Communities (ARC)
  • Congress of Neighborhoods
  • DWP Advocacy & Oversight
  • Emergency Preparedness
  • Los Angeles Neighborhood Council Coalition (LANCC)
  • Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates (NCBA)

Casitas Opposition Workshop March 4th
The Casitas Lofts are the wrong development in the wrong place. To officially file our opposition to this project, at 2800 Casitas Ave, community members and a coalition of local advocacy organizations are hosting a workshop to:
  1. Learn the scale of the developer's proposal - it's big!
  2. Break out into groups to examine specific impacts of this project on Nature, Traffic, Floodplain Management and its woeful Unaffordability.
  3. Prepare letters, submit comments online, and call local leaders to tell them we oppose this project and why.
FoLAR is co-hosting this workshop with Clockshop, NRDC, and LA River State Park Partners.
Translation and childcare services available. Refreshments will also be provided.
