L.A. Works Pop-Up Day of Service 2019: Exploring Income Inequality
Los Angeles is the place people come to pursue their dreams; a land of sea and sun with boundless opportunities for creativity and innovation. Access to opportunity is central to these pursuits, but our hundreds of nonprofit partners tell us time and again that systemic inequalities hamper the California Dream. Income inequality between the rich and the poor is increasing throughout the United States, and is strikingly higher in California and even higher in Los Angeles County.
L.A. Works connects diverse communities to create a just, equitable, and vibrant LA using service as a tool for transformation. On Saturday, June 15, 2019 at our Pop-Up Day of Service event, held for the first time in Culver City, hundreds of community and corporate volunteers will join together to address critical issues contributing to income inequality.
The three major areas that will specifically be addressed will be:
Closing the wage gap
The hidden cost of moving from homelessness
Beyond minimum wage
Volunteers will leave this festive event inspired by what they’ve done to move the issue toward a positive change and empowered with new tools to speak out. Join us for a powerful day of action and advocacy.
Sponsors include: Culver City, United Airlines, KCET, Target, Macy's, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Accenture, KPCC, McDermott Will & Emery and the Jonathan Club. Email Kim to join our growing list of sponsors.
