To build a more equitable Los Angeles, Kaimore is committed to putting all Angelenos on the path to economic security through equity-focused strategies and policies to grow good jobs, build capabilities, remove barriers, and expand opportunities for the people and places being left behind through personal financial growth and career development.
The pandemic revealed the systemic failures of LA: racism, rising unemployment, sharp racial gaps in wealth and digital access, the housing crisis and homelessness, and so much more. Communities were torn apart, the health of Angelenos suffered, and businesses shut down. This became clear to us that racial disparities in income, employment, and wealth will weigh more and more heavily as communities of color grow.
Equity—full inclusion of all Angelenos in the economic, social, and political life of the region, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, or neighborhood of residence—is essential for regional prosperity. Ensuring that people of all races and ethnicities can participate and reach their full potential has become more than just the right thing to do—it is an economic imperative.
