You are invited to use a new free civic participation tool called LawMaker ( A board member from Silver Lake Neighborhood has partnered with LA City Council Member David Ryu on a city-wide competition to increase government transparency in the city. The competition is on. This directly impacts you and your neighborhood council members. There is absolutely no charge to participate.

Council Member Ryu is challenging all LA residents, not just his own constituents, to propose and crowdsource new ideas for how we can make City operations more transparent and accessible. On December 11, the policy with the most support on LawMaker will be selected by his office to create a new city program or piece of legislation to make LA government more accessible to residents like us. This is an historic opportunity for Angelenos to actually have direct impact on the crafting of a new law or program that will impact each and every one of us.

LA’s LawMaker Challenge:
Start Date: November 7, 2017
