As CARE both celebrates its legacy of 75 years as a humanitarian leader and boldly confronts the COVID-19 pandemic, we see a unique opportunity to inspire leaders in Los Angeles to take action to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice in the world’s most vulnerable communities.

The Los Angeles Committee for CARE is part of a nationwide network of committees working as a unified force to lead, energize and resource a shared vision of investing in women and girls as a multiplier for change.
