Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"

Government is a slow and tedious process. While it often includes citizen and neighborhood involvement, non-governmental, private organizations have created movements and interesting groups which can create positive change in our cities and towns.

I am fascinated by the way groups are created and how they influence public decision making. This blog merely recognizes them and forwards the description of these groups from their own websites.

LA2050 unites citizens, stakeholders, and organizations to address our region’s toughest challenges. LA2050 is rooted in a vision of a successful Los Angeles—a healthy, thriving, and desirable place to live.

LA2050 looks at the health of the region as it exists today along eight well-defined indicators: education, income & employment, housing, public safety, health, environmental quality, social connectedness, and arts & cultural vitality. And we’ve made informed projections about where we’ll be in the year 2050 if we continue on this current path.

The condition of Los Angeles today matters because who we are and how we live now sets us on a course for who we will be and how we will live tomorrow. We are confident that with your help, we will shape the LA story anew – and build the LA2050 of our aspirations.

Explore LA2050.
Follow the stories of these eight indicators.
Then join us to shape and build the future of Los Angeles.
