Thank you for supporting the City of Justice Awards Dinner on December 10 and playing a crucial role in its success.

Thanks to your help, we are happy to announce that we raised close to $1 million in support of LAANE’s work to create good jobs, thriving communities and a healthy environment.

In addition to honoring Ken Rigmaiden, Cliff Goldstein, Susannah Grant and Chris Henrikson, we also celebrated this year’s historic minimum wage victories, which will improve the lives of nearly one million Angelenos, along with our other successes and ongoing efforts to recharge our democracy.

"LAANE's success should serve as an example to the nation of how we can combat the seemingly intractable momentum of the low-wage economy. We need to be creative. We need to be smart. And we need to be relentless. LAANE is all of these -- and the country is better off for it."

"LAANE has reinvented the proud tradition of progressive movement building to correct the economic inequalities of the 21st Century. "
