Policy + Research

Inclusive Action’s approach to policy and research is rooted in the experiences of the populations we serve. Our policy advocacy and research is informed by our programs and vice versa.


Los Angeles Street Vendor Campaign

The Los Angeles Street Vendor Campaign is a citywide effort to create a permit system for street vendors. Inclusive Action is part of the steering committee moving forward the effort for an inclusive permit system structured to help low-income entrepreneurs build strong businesses and take care of their families.

Free Lots Angeles

A collaborative with five other organizations, Free Lots Angeles is an effort to activate vacant lots in low-income, park-poor communities across Los Angeles. These one-day demonstration projects aim to show the community how they can transform vacant parcels into centers of vibrant and healthy activity. Inclusive Action is the policy lead for the FLA collaborative.


Research Fellows

Each year, Inclusive Action convenes a cohort of research fellows to help guide the next generation of critical planners and policy makers. Each of the fellows conducts their own research under the guidance of Inclusive Action staff and is provided with trainings in pertinent skills to advance their career.
