Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson


I am devoted to promoting the greatness of our district, supporting our diverse residents and celebrating our rich legacy. We have so much to be proud of in "The Eighth" and many opportunities to set an example for other parts of the City of Los Angeles. I believe that the people and neighborhoods of The Eighth are the greatest assets in our district. My priorities are to increase government responsiveness, develop economic opportunities, create equitable housing as well as transportation and improve public safety. I envision a safe, vibrant community where you and your family can thrive. My website is a hub to help local residents access information and connect to other agencies and organizations for resources.

I am your voice at City Hall and as a lifelong organizer, I believe we can accomplish anything when residents are informed and civically engaged. Please contact me to work together on solutions to address critical issues happening throughout our district and our city. I look forward to working with you to build a brighter future for South Los Angeles.
