Brand New City is a movement in the City of Los Angeles that seeks to stop the mass incarceration of youth, to stop the killing of Black and Brown peoples by LAPD, to fund public education, and to stop gentrification that has already displaced thousands of families. We seek to end corporate greed that causes our city's air to be polluted with deadly chemicals due to the unregulated factories, refineries and power plants accross the city.

We understand that #BlackLivesMatter, that we must engage the systems of oppression at all levels including local city politics where most of the injustices happen

We understand that this won't come about unless the people rise up and demand a better city government.

Our goals include engaging more young people into the political process, increasing voter turnout, and taking on the city establishment.

We are a movement with progressive values with the vision of electing progressive members of the community to the City Council and Mayor's Office in the 2017 election.


A City Council race requires hundreds of thousands of dollars to run an effective campaign. We are a people powered campaign that does not need millions, but we do need small-donor contributions to afford basic needs such as office space, mailing materials, voter data and food for our amazing volunteers.

Lets take our city back!
