Twelve LA organizations to participate in community conversation series about a shared vision for Los Angeles via #LA2050Listens
Today, LA2050 announced the winners of this year's #LA2050Listens grants. Last year, we started #LA2050Listens to solicit feedback from a broad and representative group of Angelenos on the draft LA2050 goals. This year, we put out another call for submissions for events about the latest LA2050 report which incorporates feedback drawn from the previous year's community conversations. This year's #LA2050Listens grants winners will hold events about the shared vision outlined in the report and the metrics LA2050 will use to track progress toward building a better LA.
Through #LA2050Listens, 12 organizations will each receive a $5,000 grant to host local community events about what it takes to build the LA of our dreams. We are so excited about the diversity of these events, ranging from community days to local walking tours! The events are slated to take place before October 20th throughout Los Angeles County.
The winners of this year's #LA2050Listens grants are:
Be sure to check the blog for updates and follow #LA2050Listens to learn more about these events. We hope you will attend and share your vision for the future of Los Angeles!
Last year, we finalized the LA2050 Goals with your input through a series of community-led events that solicited feedback on the draft LA2050 goals from a broad and representative group of Angelenos.
Today, LA2050 released a report that tracks progress toward our shared vision for the future of Los Angeles using these LA2050 Goals.
We are continuing the #LA2050Listens series in order to learn more from you about the progress outlined in our report. For instance, what excites or concerns your community the most about the findings in the report? What additional data points should we be tracking? Are there activations we might promote or strategies that your community suggests to accelerate progress?
The events should be participatory and engaging, but the format and design are completely up to you. In 2013, we saw everything from bike-in movie theaters to basket weaving – it's time to get creative!
Applications are due by August 4th, 2015 at noon. You can apply and learn more here!
