For 37 years, Liberty Hill’s Upton Sinclair Awards Dinner has been the premier gathering for those at the epicenter of progress and justice in Los Angeles. Every year, political allies, donor-activists, grassroots leaders and community organizers from across the region come together to celebrate the progress made in fights for social change. This year, we honored three dynamic leaders and organizing icons who have paved the way for progress in our community—former Liberty Hill executive director Torie Osborn, Senator Holly J.
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!
