Introducing Liberty Hill's 2012 Leaders to Watch

Who’s changing L.A. in 2012? Drawing on Liberty Hill's 35 years of experience investing in leaders at the frontlines of change, each year we identify five exceptional local leaders fighting for social justice from the grassroots up.
These are L.A.’s unsung heroes, the men and women doing the brave, unheralded, often thankless day-to-day work of making change, not charity. Liberty Hill’s 2012 Leaders are community organizers, donor-activists, student leaders and mentors for the nation’s next generation of changemakers. Meet them!

Transforming Leaders
