Many Los Angelenos are looking for ways to make a difference in their communities on the issues they care about most: crime, roads and streets, gangs and the economy.

Neighborhood Council participants are empowered to advocate directly for real change in their communities. Neighborhood Councils are city-certified local groups made up of people who live, work, own property or have some other connection to a neighborhood. Neighborhood Council Board Members are elected or selected to their positions by the neighborhoods themselves.

The mission of the HSDNC is to promote public participation in local government in order to respond to the needs of our community. To learn more about Neighborhood Councils throughout the City of Los Angeles, please visit the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment website.
