7 Goals, developed by Many Voices, with 1 Purpose:
to capture the power of many to propel economic impact and equity.

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.
