The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment is excited to announce the IgniteLA 2.0: Elections Workshop, where women will discover their leadership styles, practice strengths-based planning, and develop their public speaking and campaigning skills just in time for 2019 Neighborhood Council Elections!

Through a grassroots network of 99 Neighborhood Councils, EmpowerLA promotes civic engagement and improves government responsiveness to local needs. Each Neighborhood Council consists of volunteer stakeholders who meet on a regular basis to discuss local issues, support neighborhood projects, and serve as a resource for the community.
