The Los Angeles Coalition for the Economy & Jobs (The L.A. Coalition) is an independent, bipartisan membership organization, established in 2009, to bring together leaders from the region’s business, labor, academic and nonprofit communities to advance sound policy initiatives that will help to responsibly grow the economy and create quality jobs throughout the Los Angeles region.

Los Angeles’s history shows us that in key moments the region’s business, labor and civic leaders have demonstrated a shared commitment to economic growth. They knew that growing an economy does not just happen. Today, we know that it requires many things, including capital, skilled and confident entrepreneurs, a talented and educated labor pool, and much more. By linking this to constructive and proactive political leadership, responsible government and pro-growth policies, we can all play a role in leading Los Angeles in the 21st Century Economy.

The L.A. Coalition for the Economy & Jobs will focus their efforts on the following initiatives to spur economic and income growth and job creation in the region.

Invest in and Maintain a World Class Transportation System

Strengthen Government’s Role to Foster Economic and Jobs Growth

Develop Los Angeles as a Top Tourism and Convention Center

Promote Los Angeles as a Leading Hub for Technology, Entertainment and Creative Talent

Foster the Development of a Skilled and Quality Workforce for the Region
