What do I need to know about running for a seat?
This brief 3-1/2 minute What It Means To Be A Candidate Video is a great introduction to running for a seat on our council.
We want to create a forum to discuss our concerns and work with our elected representatives including City Councilmember, Marqueece Harris-Dawson to develop solutions. Our goal is community improvement through civic engagement.
Candidates should be available to attend our monthly meetings and be active in at least one committee.
There will be a workshop on March 9, 10am at Trade Tech Collge
At a Candidate Workshop you’ll learn tips for:
- running a successful campaign
- connecting with voters
- advocating for issues you’re passionate about

Workshops are being held across the city of Los Angeles between January – March 2019. If the class you want is full, make sure to join the waitlist, to receive a class packet. Sign up for a workshop on Eventbrite.
