Our Revolution LA will reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the “political revolution.” Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change, and elevating the political consciousness, we will transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
Our Revolution LA has three intertwined goals: to revitalize American democracy, to empower progressive leaders, and to elevate the political consciousness. In order to meet these goals here in Los Angeles, we will be creating organizing squads in all 88 cities in Los Angeles County. Our Field Director is currently holding organizing workshops across LA to train and empower local organizers with the skills and tools they need to meet success and reclaim our democracy for the working people of Los Angeles County.
