Alliances and Coalitions

Neighborhood Councils from throughout the city come together regularly, sometimes by region, sometimes by issue, sometimes citywide, and always with a louder representative voice. Neighborhood Councils have significant opportunities to work with regional and citywide organizations in addressing issues, taking positions, and engaging their communities and City Hall. At the same time, LA’s elected officials and department leaders also have several powerful opportunities to engage LA’s 96 Neighborhood Councils by connecting with the many Alliances and Coalitions.
