LA Civics Initiative heads to Cal State LA on June 8th!

Even in an era when people are more connected than ever, with more outlets to discuss issues, a distressingly small number of people are participating in efforts to address or change the problems they perceive in their community. In response to this “crisis of civics,” the Bedrosian Center has joined with City Impact Lab to create the LA Civics Initiative, a year-long series aiming to work toward a more civically engaged Los Angeles.

The inaugural workshop at USC featured a panel of civics experts to spark a discussion that was then turned over to attendees – including elected officials, students, faculty, alumni and community members – for a brainstorming session on barriers to civic engagement with possible solutions.

On June 8, The LA Civics Initiative heads to Cal State LA!
