Public Engagement - River LA

We Engage and Empower Communities Along the River.

River LA’s public engagement work co-creates a healthy, vibrant, and resilient region by inviting communities to reimagine their neighborhoods as part of a regional network connected by the Los Angeles River.  By investing in an integrated public engagement program that utilizes both grassroots and digital strategies, River LA will build people power, amplify the community’s voice and motivate them to represent their communities and a revitalized Los Angeles River. River LA will accomplish its goal through grassroots, peer-to-peer organizing that is inclusive and respectful of the diverse communities along the river.

Through a data-driven, people-focused public engagement campaign, River LA is committed to:

  • Build a strong organization of supportive residents in the neighborhoods surrounding the LA River by hosting events, meetings and facilitating relationships with community-based organizations;

  • Empower members of the public to advocate for policies that highlight the communities’ perspective and support the Los Angeles River; and

  • Educate by holding discussion and focus groups to broaden the community’s knowledge on the technical team’s analysis of the 51-mile Integrated Design Study and hold space for communities to learn, think and solve problems collaboratively on the future of the river.
