LA CAN members are low-income Angelenos who join us to build organization within our communities in order amass the power necessary to bring about social, civil and economic justice. Most members live in Downtown and South Los Angeles, but all low-income residents of LA are welcome.

Recognizing the many challenges faced by low-income residents, just trying to secure the basic necessities of life, we developed a membership structure that was inclusive and recognized the different amounts of time that residents have to devote to the organization. Members can decide whether they want to be general members, active members or core members.
