Early last year I was asked to serve on The Los Angeles 2020 Commission, which is an independent group of 12 diverse leaders engaged to study and report on the state of economic stability, growth and opportunity in Los Angeles. This distinguished group represents a broad spectrum of perspectives including the business, government, academic and non-profit sectors. I am honored to do my part to ensure that the voice of the community, particularly Los Angeles’ most vulnerable communities, is represented as part of the Commission’s efforts to examine the myriad of challenges that face this place we love, this imperfect paradise. While this sobering first report describes the breadth and depth of issues in Los Angeles, a second report to be issued later this year will address strategies for solving these problems.
Los Angeles belongs to all of us. Every resident from every corner of the County has a stake in its future. Please take the time to read this report. Do the issues that surface resonate to you? To your community?
