The Neighborhood Council Sustainability Alliance Liaison works with the Neighborhood Council Sustainability Alliance (NCSA) to inform the TNC about NCSA initiatives and to help the NCSA in their efforts to advance sustainability and resilience across Los Angeles through advocacy, sharing of best practices, and community action.
The NCSA holds regular public forums and events, and collaborates with Neighborhood Councils, public agencies, and environmental and other community organizations to support effective engagement on L.A.’s Sustainable City Plan, climate action, and other timely sustainability issues.
The NCSA board is composed of stakeholders from Neighborhood Councils across the City of Los Angeles.
