Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy

LAANE addresses issues affecting the working poor. It was one of the first groups to develop the concept of community benefit agreements starting with the Staples Center sports arena negotiations in 2001, wherein developers receiving public subsidies make corresponding commitments to provide quality jobs and other community benefits. In 2004, LAANE helped pass the groundbreaking Los Angeles Superstore Ordinance, giving communities more control over the construction of big-box stores.
