Our 2016-2020 Countywide Strategic Plan for Economic Development – centered around
7 Goals, developed by Many Voices, with 1 Purpose:
to capture the power of many to propel economic impact and equity.
Our vision is simple: Activate LA to Propel L.A. By activating our region’s stakeholders, leaders, and residents, Propel L.A. works to capture the power of many to propel economic impact and equity throughout LA County, and create pathways to prosperity for all. We empower organizations and volunteers – as a connector – to activate LA to fulfill the goals and strategies of the Plan.
