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.
By the Numbers
Power In Partnership: From Wins to Implementation
No movement is an island. Our grantees work across many issue areas and often partner with other community organizations and unique partners to make change possible through collective power-building, strategy and campaigns. Together, they are fighting to implement the policy victories that have been so hard fought through the movements for racial justice, economic and housing justice, environmentaland climate justice, youth and transformative justice, and LGBTQ and gender justice.
Working Together to End Toxic Neighborhood Drilling
"This success is the result of years of tireless advocacy from the partners in STAND-L.A. and our allies—but most importantly—this victory exemplifies the community power you can build through organizing. BWW fully intends to remain part of these efforts to center the voices of Black South LA residents who’ve too long been oppressed by environmental racism.” –Tianna Shaw Wakeman, Black Women for Wellness
The First Steps to Ending Youth Incarceration As We Know It
“ This work is the culmination of days, months, and years of collaboration, learning, strategizing, and organizing between dozens of organizations and hundreds of people. Educating and mobilizing are key to building power, and that is what LAYUP and its coordinating partners seek to achieve—people power.” –Milinda Kakani, Children’s Defense Fund California
Bell Gardens Rent Control
"When the pandemic hit, we had to adjust all of our strategies. We worked with our partners and a group of Latina women in Bell Gardens for two years, organizing a pilot program, listening and engaging with the community to find out what they needed. As a reproductive justice organization, we had never done housing work before, but we were able to jump into coalitions and learn a lot from our partners in this housing justice work about what had been going on locally in Bell Gardens." –Laura Jimenez, Executive Director – CA Latinas for Reproductive Justice
