2022 Year in Review
Reflecting back on 2022 has left us feeling optimistic and inspired for the year ahead. The last year of progress stands as a testament to the importance of power-building and our collective work toward change.
Alongside historic wins for housing affordability with Measures ULA and H passing in LA and Pasadena, our Stay Housed LA work has helped more than 58,000 people avoid eviction, and thanks to our partners, we have reached more than 1.2 million people with information and resources about tenants rights and other housing issues.
Thanks to the continued frontline advocacy of community members and organizations in the Stand LA coalition, the city has now officially moved to end neighborhood oil drilling. This is a tremendous environmental justice win that will improve the health of our communities.
The closure of youth detention facilities in Los Angeles and the creation of the Department of Youth Development is a start to dismantling the deeply flawed youth justice system and ending youth incarceration as we know it. Alongside a second $100 million investment in Care First, Jails Last, from the L.A. County Board of Supervisors, including $20 million earmarked for youth development programs, these are foundational wins marking continued progress in supporting the development of youth instead of locking them away.
Thanks to the tireless work of our dedicated frontline partners and the support of our growing community of donor activists, we can and will continue to drive progress toward a just and equal L.A. County for all. We can’t wait to continue building on this momentum together in the new year!
