CLOVERFIELD BLVD. — After 35 years in Santa Monica, Liberty Hill is packing up and moving out.
The foundation, which has invested more than $40 million in grassroots community organizing in Los Angeles County, plans to move in July to a location on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles, according to a press release issued by the foundation last week.
In the last decade, Liberty Hill’s investment in organizing has resulted in nearly 100,000 low-income men and women registered to vote; 25,000 men and women raised above the poverty level by living wage jobs; $400 million secured for parks in low-income neighborhoods; legal safeguards to protect California’s 25,000 LGBTQ high school students from harassment and violence; and L.A. operating the largest clean-fuel bus fleet in the country.
“In the next several years, Liberty Hill is embarking on a plan to become an even more effective, powerful, public foundation,” said President and CEO Kafi D. Blumenfield. “A key part of that is our move to a central location on one of the city’s great thoroughfares, Wilshire Boulevard. The move catapults us into greater Los Angeles and positions us to better serve our grantees and broaden our base of support.”
Liberty Hill is currently located at 2121 Cloverfield Blvd.
