Our holiday wish…

It’s always around the holidays when we are reminded of how blessed our little organization is. We are so grateful to count you among our ever-growing community of supporters, collaborators & allies.

This year, each and every one of you continued to make a real and lasting impact for our immediate L.A community, arts education and the planet by aligning yourself with RuckusRoots’ goals and values. 

What more could we ask for?! 

We do have one item on our wishlist this year, however. Maybe it will resonate with you…

Our wonderful new interns (read up on our Strong Roots internship program if you’re interested) recently surveyed Highland Park community members about their hopes for their neighborhood in the coming year. What they learned echoes exactly what we’ve been hearing from citizens all over the L.A area – from Culver City to Echo Park, South Central, West Hollywood and beyond! 

People want deepened connections with one another. They want safer, more beautiful neighborhoods. They want to access to resources and tools that will teach them how to affect real, visible change in their homes and communities. 

It’s a tall order.

But here’s what we realized: We’re all on a mission to achieve the same goals!

We’re continually inspired and awed by the resilience and innovation of the Angelenos we meet through our work. Let’s get together and tackle these goals in 2020! 

Here’s to another year of empowering communities, deepening connections and making sustainable creative experiences accessible to all…

Happy holidays!
