about oNE la
DEFINITION: ONE LA is an organization composed of member organizations (Synagogues, Churches, Schools and Civic Groups). Indiviual memberships are not permitted. ONE LA is NOT a political organization in that it does not endorse political parties nor their agendas. ONE LA is an organization that tries to improve the quality of life for the residents of the City of Los Angeles, regardless of where they reside. ONE LA has members from diverse geographical areas of Los Angeles. There are member institutions from West Los Angeles, the Valley, South Los Angeles, Mid Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley.
MISSION: To improve the quality of life for ALL residents of greater Los Angeles. ONE LA selects issues that are important to its membership and focuses on impressing upon elected (and/or appointed) officials what changes the membership is interested in achieving.
ONE LA is an organization that relies on personal (one-on-one) relationships to develop the dialogue required to bring about change. ONE LA relies on getting members to know one another’s stories and build on the human connection level to help bring about change.
ONE LA plans and organizes what are called ACTIONS where many members of ONE LA invite elected officials to hear ONE LA’s united voice. Officials are presented issues important to ONE LA and are asked to publicly commit as to how they will address those issues. The power ONE LA has is a UNIFIED voice.
ONE LA is currently involved in improving traffic flows throughout LA (idea identified by Leo Baeck Temple), reduction of gun violence (idea identified by Temple Emanuel), improve health access to all residents of LA County (idea supported by many organizations).
Join us for one of our ACTIONS and see how powerful a small community of like minded individuals actually becomes in making a difference by improving the life of people in the City of Los Angeles.
