Liberty Hill envisions a society built on racial, economic, environmental and social justice in which all people have a powerful voice, including those currently shut out of our democracy, people cut off from opportunities because they are poor, because of their skin color, because of their gender or sexual orientation, because of where they live, or where they were born.

We will not rest until society provides justice and equality for all.

Liberty Hill: Change. Not Charity.

First at the frontlines for nearly 40 years.

In the early '90s, Liberty Hill was first to fund the living wage movement. Our early investment sparked new laws that raised wages for 25,000 poverty-wage workers, won millions in back wages for garment and restaurant workers and raised the minimum wage for California families.

In the past decade, Liberty Hill was first to fund L.A.'s new environmental justice movement. The result has been millions of dollars invested in pollution reduction programs and new safeguards to protect the health of Californians most exposed to pollution's deadly consequences.

Over the last few decades, equality has expanded, but not equally across all communities. Liberty Hill is advancing equality - family acceptance and marriage equality. We want to make equality a reality for every Angeleno. Learn more about the fight for equal rights >>
