Proven difference-makers with a shared passion for building stronger communities.
Founder and CEO
John knows more about Los Angeles than anyone you’ve met. He’s started schools, taught in Watts, worked for four elected officials, led governmental organizations, instigated change in communities across the country, created an event with over 5 million participants, spoken at technical conferences on Capitol Hill, and created the City Impact Lab—to name just a few accomplishments.
An Idaho transplant, Angela believes in the small-town civic engagement ideals experienced in her youth and applies them to work she does in the neighborhoods of the city she now calls home. She has worked for two Los Angeles mayors and two Los Angeles City Council members as a policy advisor, community representative, and business development specialist.
