For Immediate Release

December 20, 2022 (Los Angeles, CA) — The Committee for Greater LA, a cross-sectoral group of civic leaders working to advance system changes and dismantle institutional racism, today released the following statement from Miguel A. Santana, Chair of The Committee, regarding the Los Angeles Board of Supervisor’s unanimous support of Mayor Bass’ plan on homelessness.

“The Board of Supervisor’s unanimous support of Mayor Bass’ plan and declaration of a state of emergency on homelessness shows that our region’s leadership is responding to what Angelenos have been asking for, bold and transformative action to solve the issue. 

“Our survey of Los Angeles voters shows that 95% of them want to see more collaboration between the city and county. We applaud today’s action by the Board of Supervisors that brings the collaboration that the Committee, voters, service providers, and people with lived experience have been calling for.”



The Committee for Greater LA assembled civic leaders at the start of the COVID pandemic to prioritize the recovery of LA County’s most marginalized communities. It is a cross-sectoral group of Angelenos who share a vision that our region’s response to the COVID pandemic can advance systems change and dismantle the institutions and policies that have perpetuated institutional racism. Its goal is sweeping systems change to ensure vulnerable and marginalized communities will be better off than they were before the crisis– there is #NoGoingBackLA. For more information, visit
