Propel L.A. has formed partnerships with 18 champions of the plan, our new Lead Partners. Public input was critical to the Plan’s development, and remains an important component to its implementation.

Many thanks to the over 500 partners that provided input into the Strategic Plan, participated in focus groups, and continues through their work to make an impact on advancing opportunity and prosperity throughout LA County.
