What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We live in the largest apartment community west of the MIssissippi. There are 12,000 residents in Park La Brea, and our community can be a model for urban high-density development. However, in a city where homeowners have most of the power, renters' rights are often overlooked or even ignored. PLBRA seeks to preserve our rights, improve our quality of life, and establish the voice of PLB residents in the City that governs them.

Community Advocacy

We function as a hub for community issues and advocate with both PLB management and City and County organizations on behalf of the residents of Park La Brea. We also interface with local businesses to support services targeted at PLB residents and keep the economy healthy. Along those lines we publish a monthly newsletter and mount community education events, including political candidate forums, hazardous waste recycling, informational panels, and general community-building activities.
