AIA|LA City Leaders Breakfast Reception w/ Eunisses Hernandez – Councilmember, City of Los Angeles, District #1
2023 City Leaders Breakfast Series Presented By: Gannett Fleming
The 2023 AIA|LA City Leaders Breakfast Series serves as an opportunity for architects & designers and other community stakeholders to meet directly with key individuals transforming Los Angeles in a roundtable setting to discuss innovative ideas that will ensure a healthy, sustainable and economically competitive future.
Eunisses Hernandez – Councilmember, City of Los Angeles, District #1
Eunisses Hernandez is a community organizer, a daughter of Mexican immigrants, and a lifelong District 1 resident. She has led major policy wins, such as Measure J and Care First, Jails Last, which have begun to drive hundreds of millions of dollars into expanding and creating access to community based services, housing, and support for young people in LA County.
Eunisses witnessed firsthand the suffering wrought by decades of bad policy and negligent leadership in her own neighborhood and across Los Angeles—decision-making that resulted in an unprecedented housing crisis, the nation’s largest jail population, and severely underfunded social services.
After a successful career leading campaigns, coalitions, and commissions that transformed local and statewide policy, Eunisses felt it was time to fight for a new vision for District 1. One where we center community and invest in systemic change that meets the needs of our people—needs like deeply affordable housing, structurally supported alternatives to incarceration, and expanded social protections that protect Angelenos from the violence of poverty.
Since taking office in December 2022, Councilmember Hernandez has prioritized a Care First agenda that focuses on investing in community care, workforce development, social services, and harm-reduction programs that help make our neighborhoods safer and healthier places for all Angelenos. She has built up a team dedicated to bringing neighborhood services back to District 1 and meeting local residents and businesses where they are at with resources, education, supportive services, and more.
She is the Chair of the Neighborhoods & Community Enrichment Committee, Vice Chair of the Government Operations Committee, and serves on the Civil Rights, Equity, Aging and Disability, Energy & Environment, and Transportation Committees.
Councilmember Hernandez lives in Highland Park with her family and dogs.
