Save the Date for Liberty Hill’s Upton Sinclair Awards Dinner on April 19 at The Beverly Hilton and stand with grassroots organizers and donor-activists who are leading the movement for social justice. Honorees include Congressman John Lewis and Elizabeth Levitt Hirsch.
When Liberty Hill launched the Brothers, Sons, Selves Coalition in 2011, in partnership with The California Endowment and 12 grassroots community groups, there was a problem we could not ignore: L.A.’s boys and young men of color were in crisis.
For too many, school was a pathway to prison and not college. Graduation rates for our young men of color were significantly lower than their white counterparts. Unemployment was high and life expectancy was low.
Liberty Hill Foundation's annual Upton Sinclair Dinner is just weeks away. Taking place on April 20, the event honors Angelenos whose work in social justice has left such an indelible mark on those it aims to help that it deserves honoring and recognition.
Liberty Hill presents its annual Founders Award to individuals whose philosophy and philanthropy embody the spirit of “Change. Not Charity.”
The year 2016 was not without its struggles for Liberty Hill Foundation supported grassroots organizations, but it was also not without its victories. Here are ten advances from the past 12 months that make L.A. fairer, cleaner, more prosperous, more peaceful and in the face of adversity, stronger!
Liberty Hill’s Youth Vote Action canvassers, phone bankers and “banner droppers” mobilized in September and October at a half-dozen grassroots locations throughout L.A. County.
Some of these young community organizers voted for the first or second time. Some may never be eligible to vote but put in long hours because they care so deeply about protecting their families and communities. Many are girls and young women.
On Thursday, October 6, more than 250 community and youth leaders gathered at the Brothers, Sons, Selves Coalition (BSS Coalition) community forum for dialogue about the release of the Vision 2020 Youth Policy Platform (Vision 2020).
Last week Liberty Hill held the Commissions Training event: "What's at Stake in November". The standing-room-only crowd was made up of an incredibly diverse group of grantees, commissions training participants and donor activists.
