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.

Join us for our 88 Cities Summit!

As cities, economic and community developers, and educators we face regional issues that impact all of our communities. Join us for this day to hear from experts, collaborate with colleagues, and discuss how we can collectively advance economic development in each of our cities.

We’ll also hear from Honorable Julian Castro, as our lunch keynote speaker, sharing insights from his time as HUD Secretary and mayor of San Antonio.
