In unprecedented times, we need historic measures. Measure J to Re-Imagine LA would set a national precedent, permanently investing billions of dollars directly toward the health, housing, and economic justice that our communities, particularly our communities of color, have been calling out for.
Building off the incredible work of Black Lives Matter and Alternatives to Incarceration movements locally, cross-sector leaders in Los Angeles have come together to quickly place a charter amendment on the November 3 ballot to reallocate funding for community change and homelessness prevention. With just a simple majority vote, Measure J would permanently dedicate a minimum of 10% of unrestricted locally generated tax revenues in LA County to community services and alternatives to incarceration, creating a generational investment and beginning to realign the County’s budget to the values and priorities of its residents. Now a coalition of 100+ community organizations, justice leaders, and advocates across issue areas are coming together to pass Measure J.
Join leaders from Re-Imagine LA and the United Way of Greater Los Angeles to learn more about the Measure J campaign, how funders in any community can engage and invest in this precedent-setting measure in LA, and you can act locally to replicate the transformational impact of Measure J in your own community.
