Statement on Los Angeles 2020 Commission

Joint statement from the L.A. Area Chamber and the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO

April 9, 2014 12:00 pm

We support the efforts of the LA 2020 Commission to identify many of the challenges facing our community and propose a series of concrete actions which might be taken to begin to address them.

The challenges examined in A Time for Truth are very real and all of us in Los Angeles must work to solve them. A Time for Action presents some well thought-out recommendations to address those challenges.

While we do not necessarily support all of the Commission’s recommendations, we strongly believe their work can and should serve as a starting point for the necessary steps our community must take to better the lives of all Angelenos.

It is time for people from all walks of life in our community to work together in ways which we have not in the past. The efforts of the LA 2020 Commission are a beginning. The Time for Action is now. 


The Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce represents the interests of business in L.A. County. Founded in 1888, the Chamber promotes a prosperous economy and quality of life in the Los Angeles region. For more information, visit
