About Us

The Los Angeles Center for Community Law and Action (“LACCLA”) is a community-based organization in Los Angeles, California. Our team organizes buildings and neighborhoods in Los Angeles County and beyond to push back against the displacement of low-income residents from their communities. We also provide free legal services where necessary in support of our organizing campaigns. We seek to create an environment where lawyers, organizers, and members of the public collaborate on coherent strategies to sustain healthy, affordable, and united neighborhoods.

Our Mission

LACCLA aims to combat exploitative and discriminatory economic practices and prevent the displacement of low-income residents from their neighborhoods. Our mission is to support the members of our community through legal and collective action and thereby empower the community to exercise its social, economic, and political power.
