Inclusive Action for the City

Inclusive Action for the City


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 – prototyping new ways to address income inequality, invest in the built environment, and improve the quality of life of residents.

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. Most recently, their Free Lots Angeles collaborative is currently administering the Adopt-A-Lot Pilot Program for the City of Los Angeles, stewarding local organizations to activate city-owned lots in their neighborhood.
