        FixLA

        Fix LA is a coalition of community groups, faith-based organizations, working families and others who came together to advocate for vital City programs and services that have been cut. We worked with the coalition to develop clear, concise and hard-hitting messaging that helped FixLA Coalition expose wasteful city contracts with big Wall Street firms and win the restoration of vital LA city services and the creation of a targeted local hiring program in disadvantaged communities.

        BMWL Campaigns worked with SEIU 721, the Coalition of City Unions and more than 30 Los Angeles community groups to expose how contracts with large financial firms drained millions from the City of Los Angeles during the financial crisis, leading to layoffs and the erosion of basic services like street maintenance and cleaning, 911 and 311 response times and recreation opportunities in low-income communities. Through the development of white papers, graphics and collateral, free media, community organizing and paid media, including mail and videos, the FixLA project won significant changes to LA City budget priorities, including the commitment of a targeted local hiring program to hire 5,000 City of LA residents from disadvantaged communities.
