Call to Action: Bloggers & Readers Making Change in LA

"Some asshole threw this cart into the LA River. How do I get someone to pick it up?"
LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Here at LAist, we're always happy to take leads and tips from out box about issues you are having in your neighborhood, commute, etc. We were happy to see our Orange Line post get picked up and now being worked on by the city and we are always looking for more issues to be brought to light.

Another good example is today with Damien Newton at StreetsblogLA who got the city to take down erroneous signs telling pedestrians they cannot cross the street in Westwood.

There's a lot that be improved upon in the City of Los Angeles and sometimes it just takes speaking up to get it fixed and sometimes it takes a little more (or a lot of) button pushing. Our neighborhoods are great places to live, but they can be better too. With that said, now or in the future, let us know how we might be able to help you (and in turn, educating other LAist readers) by commenting on this post or e-mailing us at
