Just Growth Forum

On Monday, over 150 people packed Yosemite Hall at The California Endowment to hear academic, philanthropic, business, community, and public agency leaders share their thoughts on how we can create a model for inclusive economic growth here in Los Angeles County.

In the wake of November’s¬†election, we crafted a¬†hopeful vision of #JustGrowth that celebrates our diversity and leadership as an essential ingredient for a more prosperous future. Our panel dove into what it would take to build a policy agenda around #JustGrowth as a unifying organizing principle. Most agreed that bridging the gap between community and government is essential to addressing the root causes of inequity, and when some communities are left behind, we are all worse off than when we are all able to reach our potential.
