The 2016-2020 Countywide Strategic Plan for Economic Development is centered around 7 Goals, developed by Many Voices, with 1 Purpose:
to capture the many voices to propel economic impact and equity.

Our vision is simple: Activate LA to Propel L.A. By activating Angelenos, Propel L.A. works to capture the power of many to propel economic impact and equity throughout LA County in ways that touch all of our residents. We empower organizations and volunteers, as a connector, to Activate LA to fulfill the goals and strategies of the Plan.
