The Search to Involve Philipino Americans (SIPA) will host a Sense LA creative assembly in late January at their headquarters in historic Fillipinotown. SIPA provides health and human services programming, community economic development programming, and arts and cultural programming for low to moderate-income youth and families in multi-ethnic historic Filipinotown and the greater Los Angeles Pilipino-American community.
We are excited to work with SIPA on this assembly and hope you can join us! More information will be provided soon.

Sense LA Community Plan:
Sense LA, together with the Korean-American Federation of Los Angeles (KAFLA), have convened all members of the Greater Wilshire area, organizations, clubs, associations and general residents to participate in a series of creative assemblies intended to bring people together to discuss, identify and create more nuanced comprehension of the issues that affect themselves, each other and their communities. Through our efforts, we anticipate the creation of a greater Wilshire recommendation document for the City of LA’s master plan. KAFLA has joined forces with the Berggruen Institute to use a leading-edge collaboration and creativity methodology developed at MIT to enable groups of people to understand problems of mutual interest and to connect to create a holistic vision for every subsection of greater Wilshire. This method of cooperation represents a marked shift in the way community input is gathered. It is also an unprecedented way of creating a deeper understanding of the individual members of various communities and how they feel about their environment.
