About Us

LA Forward is a community of people who fight for policies that will make Los Angeles a fair, flourishing place for everyone.   

We envision our region as a vibrant and social democracy, where Angelenos have the knowledge to participate in meaningful deliberations about our greatest challenges, the skills and opportunity to build civic relationships within and across neighborhood communities, and the power to ensure our political system prioritizes our common needs above private interests.

We are channeling recent floods of activism into an organizing network that methodically develops grassroots leadership. We mobilize thousands of Angelenos for struggles to:

  • Fully fund our schools by closing corporate tax loopholes.
  • Strengthen democracy by empowering grassroots candidates with public funding and ending corporate and developer contributions.
  • End homelessness by supporting construction of supportive housing and making sure that new development prioritizes affordable housing and doesn’t displace people from their homes.
  • Build a vibrant city around public space and transit with affordable housing for all, where people of diverse classes, ethnicities, and cultures form communities together.
  • Transform unjust policing and incarceration systems that disproportionately targets communities of color and immigrants.
  • Fight for climate and environmental justice.
  • Guarantee workers’ rights and a fair economy.
