resisterhoodLA is a 100% volunteer-run 501c3 non-profit that produces thoughtfully curated volunteer events that connect and serve the Los Angeles community. We want to create inclusive spaces, accessible & welcoming to everyone.
Established in 2016, resisterhoodLA launched as a way to introduce folks to volunteering with a wide variety of non-profits & causes.
Since 2019, we have focused on one cause: homelessness. By partnering with local non-profits doing direct outreach and inviting people with lived experience to share their stories, we give volunteers a comprehensive understanding of housing & homelessness issues and empower them to participate in local solutions.
Enact positive change in the greater Los Angeles area and surrounding communities and promote and facilitate volunteer efforts, philanthropy and fundraising by:
(i) providing volunteer, financial and other support for charitable and non-profit organizations;
(ii) developing original community programs that benefit the greater Los Angeles community;
(iii) organizing events that promote and/or support other non-profit organizations; and
(iv) educating the public about ways to advocate for, engage with and support their community.
