Change L.A.

What started as a series of after-work get-togethers in DTLA has turned into a network of younger Liberty Hill supporters who gather in casual settings to “put the social in social justice.”

Introducing friends and colleagues to Liberty Hill’s across-boundaries community is a progressive’s pleasure, and the almost-annual “Change L.A.” is a party with a purpose. Each celebration honors a young philanthropist and a young community organizer, spotlighting the contributions of new generations of local social justice visionaries. The Sarah Pillsbury NextGen Award, established by one of our founders, is given to an inspirational leader who invests time and raises funds to advance social justice in Los Angeles. Liberty Hill’s Wally Marks Changemaker Award, named for a longtime supporter, is given each year to an individual whose work in the community illustrates Dr. King’s insight that while “the arc of history is long, it bends toward justice.”
