This past year we’ve learned a lot more about the political realities of Los Angeles than any group of artists ever really wanted to. Not the philosophical and cultural stuff — that’s great — but the nuts and bolts. How the machine really works.
The good news is that we have learned how to be a more effective advocate for the interests of the community, and the even better news is that doing that directly involves the community as a whole: creators, producers, and enthusiasts.
As it turns out, a few voices banded together can have a big impact in the city if they’re in the right place.
To that end, we’re building a database of community members and linking them to the LA City Council Districts they live and work in. We don’t need addresses, just names, council districts, and emails.
When there’s an action in a council district you live or work in, we may contact you to reach out to your City Council member. That’s it.
Yes, this is very ninth-grade civics class. Shockingly: it also works.
This may not seem like much, but this is the fundamental building block of our political strength. Please add yourself to the database and share it with your friends who are active in the community. The time is coming soon when we will need your help to make LA a friendlier place for immersive projects of all sizes.
