low-income communities of color to more effectively realize their power and
influence over the use of land. We work with residents to increase
communities’ access to parks and gardens, while organizing to change local
policies to develop more equitable park and food systems for generations to

disinvestment, racism, and environmental injustice in low-income communities
of color and that no person in LA County should live without a safe park or

challenging work which makes change a part of our regular work day life. You

community vision and feedback. The Project Manager reports to the Director of
Special Projects and is given a high level of autonomy and accountability for
a project’s costs, timeline, design, management of consultants and
contractors, compliance with public and private funding programs and
construction oversight. The PM typically works in close coordination with
LANLT team members, including the Community Organizing, Stewardship,
Fundraising, and Operations teams. The Land Trust currently employs two
Project Managers, who often leverage each other strengths when challenges
arise.
