Purpose of Neighborhood Councils

“To promote more citizen participation in government and make government more responsive to local needs”

~ Los Angeles City Charter, Article IX

Neighborhood Council leaders from throughout the city have partnered with the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (EmpowerLA) in bringing the 2016 LA Congress of Neighborhoods to City Hall on Saturday, September 24, from 7:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Los Angeles has 96 certified neighborhood councils and the Congress of Neighborhoods is designed by council leaders so that there is something for everybody, from curious stakeholders to new board members to seasoned veterans of the civic engagement process to city hall insiders.

The event is free, it includes breakfast and lunch, workshops, networking and more.
