Celebrating LA's 241st birthday!


On September 4th, Los Angeles celebrates its 241st birthday. Join us in celebrating with this year's "Happy Birthday, LA!" e-book.

In honor of this milestone, we're releasing our annual "Happy Birthday, LA!" e-book, featuring:

  • Full-page infographics illustrating how LA is faring according to 20 metrics, from the percentage of Angelenos that walk or bike to work to the number of jobs per capita and voter participation rates.
  • Birthday wishes for LA from 10 local leaders, doers, and social innovators, including Nika Soon-Shiong (Founder and Executive Director, Fund for Guaranteed Income) and Jamiah E. Hargins (Founder and Executive Director of Crop Swap LA).
  • A directory of more than 100 social impact organizations that are working to make LA's future brighter.

We can't wait to see what the next year holds for LA!
