Liberty Hill is the Home for Progressive Los Angeles

Liberty Hill is a laboratory for social justice and social change. We leverage the power of community organizers, donor activists, and allies to advance social justice through strategic investment in grants, leadership training, and campaigns.

Liberty Hill envisions a society in which all people have a powerful voice, including those currently shut out of our democracy, people cut off from opportunities because they are poor, because of their skin color, because of their gender or sexual orientation, because of where they live, or where they were born.

We fuel grassroots organizing and activists fighting for change.
We prioritize building power in communities impacted by systemic oppression.
We provide a community where donor activists can engage beyond their gift.

Victory Takes a Village

By Shane Murphy Goldsmith, President & CEO

"We have to continue to defend our values and center people with lived experience. We have to continue to invest in local efforts that prove our methods work. And we have to fight to implement our victories and ensure this critical work is funded and carried out. Thank you for keeping up the fight and standing beside us as we push forward toward a more just future."
