EmpowerLA-200-squareWelcome to the Empowerment Congress West Area (ECWA) Neighborhood Development Council web home. It is our goal to use our website — in tandem with Meetings, Outreach, and Social Media — as vehicle to keep our community informed, engaged and empowered.

ECWA is one of 96 certified neighborhood councils in the City of Los Angeles. The goal when Los Angeles voters established the neighborhood council system was to bring the debate that occurs at City Hall down to the community level. ECWA is appropriated a small amount of your tax dollars ($42,000 annually) to fund small community projects/events and facilitate community discussions about public policy – one of the most important tenents of participatory democracy.

city sealECWA represents the communities of Baldwin Hills Estates, Baldwin Village, Baldwin Vista, Cameo Plaza, Crenshaw Commercial District, Crenshaw Manor, Leimert Park, Village Green and Arlington Park.

Please explore our website, come to our meetings, join our mailing list and get involved with a committee.
