The City of Long Beach Office of Equity wants to hear from you!

Help shape the mission of the Long Beach Commission for Women and Girls (LBCWG).  LBCWG is committed to working intersectionally and inclusively to promote equality and justice for all women and girls focusing on economic and educational equity, access to health care, including reproductive choice, violence against women, safety and other key issues affecting women and girls.

The goal of the survey is for the commission to understand what women and girls need, want, and deserve.  The results from the survey will be presented to the Long Beach City Council.

Complete this survey to help shape the mission of a future Long Beach Commission on Women and Girls.  Incentives are available while supplies last.

A Strategic Master Plan for Unhoused Long Beach Residents

Project Dignity is a community collaboration of neighborhood association, faith-based organizations, and community-based organizations advocating for unhoused neighbors in Long Beach.

Project Dignity’s efforts at McArthur Park and Anaheim Corridor has grown into political action for social justice. While they continue the Mondays Matter mutual aid outreach, Project Dignity’s activism reaches beyond the park and into city hall.

Join Project Dignity’s advocacy to demand:

1. Accountability and Overseeing of Homeless-related RFPs and contracts

2. Collaboration between the 20+-year old Multi Service Center (MSC) with community based organizations, facilities, and community groups; and Multi Points of Entry not just the MSC

3. A Strategic Master Plan with timelines, checks and balances

4. Mental Health and Rehabilitation facilities (assisted living)

5. Housing First with Trauma-informed workers and case management plan with transparency
