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 will not rest until society provides justice and equality for all.
