What it means to be a Neighborhood Council candidate

Watch this short video by Empower LA:

* An At-Large Representative must live, work, own a business, go to school, worship, or participate in a community organization that has continuously maintained a physical street address within UNNC’s boundaries for at least a year —  and that organization must perform ongoing activities that benefit our UNNC neighbors and neighborhoods. A community organization can include, but is not limited to, educational, non-profit and/or religious organizations, parks, recreation areas, public safety organizations, environmental organizations, medical/health organizations, libraries, religious institutions, service organizations, or other at large entities.
