Bringing Fall Into Focus At Liberty Hill

Welcome to the Fall Issue of Fast Forward L.A., your source for news on Liberty Hill’s work and the movement for progressive change in Los Angeles. In this issue: Activists secure a huge victory on rent stabilization, the Ready to Rise public/private partnership launches, and more Agenda for a Just Future updates and victories.


A Major Milestone: Permanent Rent Stabilization Passes in Unincorporated L.A. County

Our collective activism and philanthropic support has powered another major victory! The Board of Supervisors recently approved a motion for permanent rent stabilization in Unincorporated L.A. County.

This is the largest expansion of rent stabilization in almost forty years.

We are proud that Liberty Hill’s grantmaking, activist training, and alliance-building fueled the organizing that made this victory a reality. Read more and watch a new video on our website.
