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.
Kent sees himself not simply as a coordinator, but as a motivational leader and a builder in his community. He views his involvement as the platform through which organizations and he himself can be held accountable to the mission and values that ARC propels. It is through using his voice and changing policy that Kent now “exerts his muscles”. He and ARC testify to the resilience and strength of the LA community, committed to a more equitable justice system.
