Interview about Los Angeles for All

We recently spoke with Thandisizwe Chimurenga of Rootwork about Los Angeles for All and building a municipalist movement in the City of Angels.

Who is Los Angeles for All?

We are a network of autonomous social movement organizations inspired by the theory and practice of radical municipalism. We tend to the fertile movement ecology in Los Angeles: by resisting the dominant structures that rule over us and by building and networking alternatives based on direct democracy, solidarity economy, and feminized politics.

Our hypothesis is that Los Angeles is ready for its municipalist moment: to build an alternative polity and economy that is directly democratic and participatory, which will eclipse the current system of racial capitalism and rule by the power elite. We will grow alternatives wherever we can and fight to shrink the status quo, until we transition power and resources.

Join us to build a movement for participatory and economic democracy in the City of Angels. You can read more about us, see upcoming and past events, subscribe to our mailing list, and support us if you have the resources.
