The Alliance for Community Transit (ACT-LA) is a LA County-wide coalition of 41 organizations working at the forefront of racial, environmental, and economic justice. Our coalition members include tenants’ rights and community development organizations, workers’ centers, transit advocates, public interest law firms, environmental justice groups and public health advocates, among others. Thanks to our coalition’s diversity, we view housing and transportation issues through an intersectional lens. Our mission as a coalition is to uplift communities—through affordable housing opportunities, good jobs and access to high quality public transit—as the Southland transforms into a more sustainable region. Given our commitment to equity, we believe that low-income communities and communities of color must be centered in decisions that seek to transform our communities.
