City of Los Angeles
COVID-19 Pandemic Reflections Initiative
The world has changed in many ways since the COVID-19 pandemic began affecting our lives, and some things will never be the same. The City of Los Angeles is exploring possibilities for creating a COVID-19 Pandemic memorial to honor the lives lost, remember our shared experience, and mobilize communities to rebuild together.
Before the city makes a decision, we want to hear from you! Your reflections and ideas will help determine if, and how, the city should move forward with a COVID-19 Memorial.
The City of Los Angeles Office of the Mayor and Department of Cultural Affairs are partnering with See Change Institute to get input from Angelenos on how we can collectively remember the COVID-19 pandemic as a city.
As a first step, See Change Institute has released a city-wide survey to collect input on the initiative. This survey is completely anonymous and should take 6-8 minutes to complete. Please share your thoughts by taking our brief survey here.
See Change is holding a series of listening sessions from January through April 2023 to give Angelenos the opportunity to participate in the co-creation of this memorial. These sessions will be open to the public and hosted at several locations throughout the city, as well as online. We will also be inviting local community groups (e.g., church, school, workplace) to host their own sessions and share feedback with the initiative.
