Empowerment Congress celebrates 25 years


The Empowerment Congress, a distinctive and deliberate national model of civic engagement built on the core principles of participatory democracy, reciprocal accountability, and intentional civility, is a dynamic partnership among neighborhood groups, residents, nonprofit organizations, businesses, religious institutions, and community leaders within the diverse communities of Los Angeles County’s Second Supervisorial District.

Join the Empowerment Congress on Saturday, Jan. 14, 2017 for the 25th Annual Summit, with the theme, “Lessons Learned: 25 Years of Empowerment and Leadership.”

This year’s Summit will include ten workshops produced by standing committees, featuring interactive content, panel discussions, and engaging speakers.

Following the workshops, there will be a celebration to kick off the 25th anniversary year of the Empowerment Congress.
