Support for Share With the Other LA
has been provided by:
The Kellogg Foundation
The Richard & Hinda Rosenthal Foundation

OUR MISSION

Share With The Other LA generates outreach programs and creative media campaigns to inspire LA to help children and families of the working poor who are living in hunger and poverty. More than two million Los Angeles County residents live in serious poverty, with 1.4 million "food insecure" and 600,000 experiencing hunger regularly - a painful, little-known reality. Our organization builds general public awareness of how to help with the massive needs of the poor who constitute the other LA.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

1. Awareness - Inform yourself and then reach out to neighbors, relatives, colleagues and friends to get involved. Schedule speakers at gatherings you organize.
Start your education by reading through the materials on this site.

We will help: write to staff@lapoverty.org

2. Advocacy - Advocate on behalf of the poor to legislators and community leaders. Click on "Advocacy" on the left and "News and Alerts/Urgent Actions" on the right to get involved.

3. Action - Volunteer with a poverty relief or advocacy organization. Click on "Volunteer" on the left and "Help the Helpers" on the right to find a role for yourself. Also Donate to us and to other groups.

There are innumerable opportunities. Pick one or more that engage you and get involved. And at minimum, contact your legislators, Congresspeople and political leaders. We make it easy for you here.
