#LA2050Listens is a series of community conversations led by local organizations to solicit feedback on LA2050 from a broad and representative group of Angelenos. With an open call for proposals, we asked local organizations to submit ideas on how they would engage their community around the LA2050 goals and reports.
Thirty organizations have launched public engagement events about the future of Los Angeles. These events were conducted in English, Spanish, and Tagalog, reflecting our region’s cultural diversity. Engagement methods ranged from community conversations over basket weaving to a storytelling summit at MacArthur Park, a “sidewalk engagement” session, and even a radio show where Angelenos were able to chat live and discuss their vision for the future of LA.
LA Commons hosted a storytelling summit at MacArthur Park in which youth interviewed Angelenos on their vision for the future of Los Angeles
From Lot To Spot hosted a "sidewalk engagement" session, aka a block party on the goals and participants were able to create visuals of their vision for the future of Los Angeles!
Downtown Women’s Center hosted an interactive ideation session with members of the Skidrow community and local organizers
railLA hosted Expo Explorers, in which Angelenos explored and reflected on the goals through visiting various areas of Los Angeles by riding the Expo line
