Building a Community of Yes for a More Equitable Los Angeles — We know how to motivate people at the voting booth. Now, how do we keep the electorate engaged to achieve a greater L.A.? Hear from Nithya Raman, urban planner, working mother, immigrant to America and member of the Los Angeles City Council representing District 4. In 2020, Raman became the first Asian American woman and the first South Asian ever to serve on the City Council. Her priorities include delivering compassionate and effective services for people experiencing homelessness, building more affordable housing and moving urgently to meet the city’s climate goals.
