Meet the coalition behind Measure J

The re-imagine l.a. coalition

In unprecedented times, we need structural change. Re-Imagine L.A. County is a coalition of advocates, community organizations, and neighbors supporting Measure J to prioritize health, housing, and jobs.

For decades, L.A. County’s budget has directed money away from Black, Brown, and low-income communities and allocated it in ways that negatively impact these same communities.
