Leadership for Urban Renewal Network (LURN)

Based in Los Angeles, LURN is a nonprofit that works to catalyze multi-disciplinary collaborations focused on designing, building, and promoting sustainable communities in which people can live to their greatest potential.  To do so, it coordinates LURNlabs, purpose-driven innovation labs that bring together diverse people to develop solutions to urban issues.  One current LURNlab focuses on the development of an LA strategy to incubate community-based, worker cooperatives.  Through its LURNcapital initiative, it also works to increase low-income communities’ ability to access capital.  For example, it is currently working to help street vendors who want to sell at farmers’ markets purchase the equipment they need to do so.
