Welcome

The Los Angeles Civics Initiative is a unique program working to discuss, understand, and fix barriers to civic participation, civic literacy, and civic engagement in Greater Los Angeles. We do this through a series of workshops and surveys throughout the region engaging civic, business, nonprofit, and individual stakeholders.

Take our initial survey on the state of civics in Los Angeles today!

The Los Angeles Civics Initiative is a joint program of City Impact Lab and the USC Bedrosian Center.

Why are we collaborating on this project?

  • To foster civic engagement and a civic dialogue in LA County
  • To find ways to engage those affected by civic barriers with those able to address these issues
  • To model and cultivate collaborative governance and problem solving
  • To create a more civically engaged and literate LA
