LA Voice believes all people have power and a voice. Every day we amplify that power by uniting diverse faith voices and equipping grassroots leaders to organize their power for what their communities need and want, winning systems changes that improve the lives of all county residents. We are a growing interfaith, multi-racial, multi-lingual organization of 55 churches, synagogues, organizations, and mosques that represent more than 50,000 families in Los Angeles County. (See our Facebook page L.A. Voice or website www.lavoice.org). Our core strategic values are: increasing personal agency and power; bridging across difference and identities; and confrontation with power for social transformation.
Our diverse and experienced team works with communities across the county to create a Los Angeles with racial equity and abundant life for all.
