The Empowerment Congress Annual Summit

Since its inception, the Empowerment Congress has convened an annual meeting of members, elected officials, community stakeholders, and other interested constituents to discuss the issues that directly affect the areas in which the Empowerment Congress does its work. Over the years, the reach of the summit has expanded significantly, and continues to educate, engage, and empower the residents of South Los Angeles, neighboring cities and communities in the Los Angeles County Second Supervisorial District.
