Inclusive Action's mission is to bring people together to build strong, local economies that uplift low-income urban communities

Inclusive Action for the City (formerly known as Leadership for Urban Renewal Network - LURN) was founded in 2008 as a laboratory for innovative community development initiatives. Inclusive Action recognizes that passing policy isn’t enough, we must also work urgently to get capital into the hands of micro-entrepreneurs and families. The organization should not just be a “think tank” it should also be a “do tank.” Inclusive Action has become a leader in the citywide campaign to create a permit system for street vendors; hosted over 7,000 Angelenos in topical events; developed a purchasing cooperative to bring healthy produce to small markets located in "food desert" communities; launched micro-finance programs to support small businesses in low-income neighborhoods with capital and coaching; and advised major cities and organizations on how to engage communities effectively.

LURN accomplishes its work through three primary functions: I. LURN Labs, which researches and advocates for thoughtful urban policy and holds forums connecting hundreds of planners and community development practitioners each year in support of innovative revitalization initiatives; II. LURN Capital, which designs and builds economic development projects including the (Re)Store Fund, an equity fund investing in businesses in low-income neighborhoods; and III. LURN Advisors, which serves as an expert resource for organizations and government agencies trying to implement innovative strategies to revitalize low-income, urban areas.

Mission: To bring people together to build strong, local economies that uplift low-income urban communities

Center for Nonprofit Management

This year we added several new members to our board and will be introducing you to them over the next few weeks. First up: meet Rudy Espinoza, Executive Director at Inclusive Action for the City

His work has focused on helping the private sector identify investment opportunities in low-income neighborhoods, researching the informal economy, building private/non-profit partnerships, and training residents to participate in revitalization of their neighborhoods. He was also one of the leading voices in the successful campaign to legalize street vendors in LA.

In addition to sitting on our board, he serves on the City of Los Angeles' Board of Transportation Commissioners, the Board of Directors for Esperanza Community Housing Corporation and the LA Kitchen, on the Leadership Board for the LA Food Policy Council, and on the Advisory Board for the LA Development Fund and Investing in Place. Excited to have you on board!

Last Friday, the first lot in our Adopt-A-Lot program opened! This lot activation began 6 years ago when a group of community organizations, Free Lots Angeles, came together to address vacant lots in communities like Pacoima, Watts, and South Central Los Angeles. The City owns nearly 2,000 vacant lots, Free Lots Angeles knew that there should be a way for community members and local organizations to access these spaces to beautify their neighborhood and build community. With the leadership of Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez, the city established the “Adopt-A-Lot” program, and this past week the program celebrated its first lot activation in the North Hills neighborhood of the San Fernando Valley. We are so excited to have Pacoima Beautiful as the "adopter" of our inaugural lot!

The program includes a robust community engagement, a “participatory budgeting” and a component where community members vote on the uses of the lot.

Thank you to Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez, the General Services Department, Citywide Brownfields Program (part of the Los Angeles Sanitation & Environment Department), Mayor’s Office of Budget and Innovation, the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Engineering, and our partners Kounkuey Design Initiative.

Friends! If you're in the San Fernando Valley today, join us for this important opening of the first vacant lot activated as part of the city's "Adopt-a-lot" program.

Under the leadership of Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez, we worked with city partners to activate this city-owned vacant lot and set up a community engagement process and design guidelines with Free Lots Angeles and Kounkuey Design Initiative.

The powerhouse of Pacoima Beautiful was selected to be a "steward" of the lot, and local residents were engaged to "vote" on what they wanted to see on this lot. Fast forward to today, and their lot is opening!

Join us!

Hi Friends! It's been a while since we've the page, but we've been hard at work with community partners and city leaders on the implementation of the "Adopt a Lot" program. This program identifies city-owned, vacant lots and engages residents to activate them. We think its an important example of how city owned assets can be used to advance community-identified priorities.

This afternoon, we'll be in North Hills where we'll be standing with Pacoima Beautiful Inclusive Action for the City Kounkuey Design Initiative and Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez at the first official "lot activation" as part of the Adopt-a-lot program.

If you're around, join us!

Investing In People Over Profits — Inclusive Action for the City

Our Executive Director, Rudy Espinoza, wrote a blog about how lenders can do more than just talk about equity! Read about his 5 recommendations to add to a prospectus if he was advising a mission-driven fund.

"I’d encourage all of us to consider the very systems that got us to the place where we are: where black and brown people have 1% of the net worth of their white counterparts, where financial institutions consistently discriminate against people of color, and where 60,000 people are living on the streets of Los Angeles."

inclusiveaction.org How Lenders Can Do More Than Just Talk About Equity When Trump established the Opportunity Zone program as part of his 2017 Tax Cut, people across the political spectrum were both happy and sad. Some thought this was an important moment to galvanize the super wealthy to invest in low-income commu

New Rules Governing Street Vending Set To Kick in -- But Is LA Ready?

Check out this interview with our Executive Director and Councilmember John Lee. A good discussion on priorities for street vending in 2020.

scpr.org Come January 1, street vendors in L.A. will be operating under a new regulatory framework.

The Los Angeles Street Vendor Campaign

If you're near a radio, tune in to 89.3 KPCC right now (10:25am) to listen to our Executive Director Rudy Espinoza talk with Councilmember John Lee about his resolution to modify SB 946 (the bill that decriminalized street vending) to find new ways to enforce street vending.

Feel free to call-in too: 866-893-5722

No to criminalizing hard working entrepreneurs like street vendors!

Happy new year community! As you may know, the City of Los Angeles has approved a street vending permit system that will be in place tomorrow. There has been a serious lack of education and promotion of the new rules, and we've been working hard to push the City to do more to educate our street vendor community. (more on that soon)

In the meantime, a resolution was introduced earlier this month to ask state legislators to provide "more flexibility when enforcing non-permitted vending violations." We believe this is a major threat to decriminalization efforts that seek to protect immigrant entrepreneurs from the Trump administration's policies.

To learn more, tune in to 89.3 KPCC today at 10:25am to listen to one of our campaign members respond to questions about this move and other policies that will impact street vending in 2020.

[12/03/19]   We love #GivingTuesday and welcome any donations you want to give us, but we also encourage you to look at and consider donating to some of our favorite organizations. We cannot do this work alone and want to highlight some of the reasons we love our partners in this space.

East LA Community Corporation: If you are into community organizers, tenants rights, and affordable housing developers who are changing the definition of what it means to build an equitable city, these are the people to donate to.

Little Tokyo Service Center: If you love cultural preservation, innovative housing opportunities, and full service organizations who advocate for their residents in every respect, donate to them.

Kounkuey Design Initiative: If stellar urban design and activating spaces into beautiful cultural hubs that stimulate local creativity and community participation is your thing, these are the people to support.

SAJE: If you think research is best paired with action, coalition building, and policy change that affects people all across Los Angeles County, here is where your money should go. (Also - check out their excellent report on Opportunity Zones!)

Public Counsel: If defending and advocating for all of the people who have been wronged by unjust and racist policies across California is your cup of tea, there isn't a more worthy place for your dollars than here.

There are so many others in these spaces who are doing the work daily to make Los Angeles the best city it can be. If you want some other recommendations for places to give that better suit your interests, feel free to reach out to us.

Opinion | Opportunity Zones — for Billionaires

nytimes.com A federal tax break intended to draw investment to lower-income areas has become one more way for the rich to avoid paying taxes.

The Los Angeles Street Vendor Campaign

Yesterday, the City Council approved a new permit system for street vendors in Los Angeles. Despite protests, the City Council approved a $541 annual permit fee for all street vendors, with a reduced fee of $291 for only the first six months starting January 2020. This is simply too high and could be a tremendous barrier to entry for many vendors, the vast majority of whom earn less than $20,000 per year. A $541 annual fee would be one of the highest in the nation and threatens to undermine, at the very start, a program that is intended to support thousands of very low income entrepreneurs seeking to gain an economic foothold.

The Council approved this despite one-third of the Council being absent, and in front of 200 street vendors, many of whom didn't even have translation devices to understand what was taking place. There was no discussion despite the conflicting recommendations from 3 Council Committees prior to this meeting.

Throughout the process, the LASVC has pushed for lower permit fees – a sliding scale of $50-$200 depending on ability to pay, and many Vendors have asked the Council to consider fee reductions for low-income and senior entrepreneurs. Unfortunately, the Council approved a framework without any reductions based on ability to pay – only a slight reduction to $291 for the first six months. However, as always, vendor leaders were tenacious and undeterred in their organizing and advocacy for a more inclusive program. In response to vendor concerns about the Council’s framework, Councilmember Price separately introduced a motion that calls for a future assessment of potential subsidized permit fee for vendors facing financial hardship. This motion still needs Council approval and we hope to use this opportunity to mitigate some of the risks posed by the default $541 annual fee.

Share this news with your network. The next 6 months will be crucial in organizing and advocating for lower permit fees. Together, we were successful in decriminalizing street vending in LA and throughout California and street vendors have established themselves as a power to be reckoned with at City Hall. The creation of a permit system is only the beginning of our organizing and advocacy.

Stay tuned for more info on how the permit system will be rolled out. #LAStreetVendors #VendorPower

City of Los Angeles and its Sidewalks: Reconciling Competing Uses and Needs

Check out this blog post co-authored with our ED Rudy Espinoza and the leadership of Investing in Place and Los Angeles Walks. They share an opinion on a current proposal from the Bureau of Street Services to earn advertising revenue from bus shelters and sidewalks.

They call on the City to create an overarching vision for the city's sidewalks and public right of way. This vision should prioritize low-income communities of color and any revenue generation should meet their needs. Give it a read and share with your networks!

What the Protests Breaking Out All Over the World Have in Common

This week we attended the Budget and Finance Committee meeting to hear the recommendation it made to the full City Council regarding the sidewalk vending permit fee taking effect on January 1, 2020. Before the sidewalk vending item came up, each LA City Department Head gave updates on their budgets and were told by the Budget and Finance Committee that they would have to cut costs to save the City government a total of $100 Million for the fiscal year.

Check out this article that connects global protests to cuts in services to the poor. Despite these cities being far away, we see similar cuts in resources coming to the most marginalized communities here in LA.

slate.com Millions of people are taking to the streets. It might just be the beginning.

Our Story

After 10 years as Leadership for Urban Renewal Network (LURN), our organization is excited to announce that we’ve adopted a new name. We are now Inclusive Action for the City.

We continue to believe that to address the crises in our cities, we need to come together to craft action-oriented solutions that transform systems. We believe that equity should be the foundation of all our work and the solutions to make our cities better already exist in the minds and experiences of people who live in the communities they serve.
