From Surviving to Thriving: A Quality-of-Life Study with Transgender, Gender Nonconforming, and Intersex (TGI) Adults in the City of Los AngelesNovember 6, 2023
Transgender people in California experience discrimination and harassment in employment, housing, health care, schools, and other public places. More limited research has also documented that intersex people face employment discrimination and have poorer health compared to the general population. This study embraced a quality-of-life framework to gather first-person accounts from 55 transgender, non-binary, and intersex (TGI) adults to better understand the needs of TGI people who live, work, or receive services in the City of Los Angeles. Focus group topics included housing, employment, health care, and access to local services and resources. Overall, we found that while the TGI community continues to face many acute challenges, it has also developed expertise, relationships, and resources that will be critical to addressing these challenges in partnership with the City.
PledgeLA Venture Data Report 2023: An Analysis of Access to Capital in the Los Angeles Venture Capital and Tech EcosystemsAugust 15, 2023
A new report from the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs that tracks investments made by LA-based venture firms connected to the Annenberg Foundation's PledgeLA initiative found slight increases in funding to women and Black founders when compared with the previous year. However, there are still many gaps remaining, especially when it comes to check size and venture firms' comparative assets under management.
The purpose of this plan is to propose a public safety framework that revises, revitalizes, and relaunches Los Angeles' successful comprehensive community safety strategy, which first launched in 2008. This wrap-around strategy worked to increase trust between community and civic leadership and improve residents' perceptions of safety. This generated steep declines in crime and violence with fewer arrests.The proposed Los Angeles Peace Plan builds on the success of community-based public safety efforts from the last 15 years in the City of Los Angeles. This strategy not only saves lives and improves quality of life conditions, but it is also a budget saver. However, the strategy as it exists today has suffered some setbacks and requires revitalization to meet the emerging public safety challenges in the city and region. Our goal is to ensure an enhanced and scaled comprehensive strategy is developed to redefine public safety in the region.
