The Agenda for a Just Future

Time and time again, Los Angeles has been at the frontlines of the fight for social justice, and Liberty Hill has been engaged when and where the struggle is most intense.


The Fight for Justice Begins in Los Angeles.

Liberty Hill’s Agenda for a Just Future is a five-year campaign that seeks to tackle key areas of injustice and find long-term solutions to make L.A. the just and equitable place we know it can be. We have to pick our fights and Liberty Hill picks our youth, our homes, and our health.

With this Agenda for a Just Future, we will:

End youth incarceration as we know it in L.A. County and build a new youth development system.
Fight for a roof over every head and expand tenants rights.
Eliminate toxic neighborhood oil drilling and stop the pollution that is endangering the health of hundreds of thousands of Angelenos.
