By renewing or becoming an LTCC member for the first time, you are ensuring that Little Tokyo remain a viable center for Japanese Americans and the Los Angeles Downtown community. We need your participation to create a vision and advocate for the future of this community! With the sunset of the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) in 2012, we are hoping to use membership revenue as a means of future financial support for the LTCC.
Why Should I Become a Member?
Membership dues help to support the mission of the Little Tokyo Community Council.
Membership with LTCC provides these benefits:
- Networking opportunities with other nonprofits, businesses and residents
- Access to a forum to learn about community events, organizations, businesses and current events
- Dissemination of your agency's events via the LTCCA mailing list and the website
- Invitations to LTCC public forums and events
What We have done:
LTCC was formed in 1999 by Irene Hirano (then, executive director of Japanese American National Museum) and the group of community leaders to advocate as one voice to tackle various community issues. Otherwise, here are what could have happened……
-A Jail building in our community
-Unsafe community without visitors
-METRO line splitting our community in half or ugly monstrous concrete tubes sticking out all over at its future station site
- Residential Buildings with minimum parking spaces every where
-No future neighborhood planning, etc, etc.
Please consider becoming an LTCC member. For organizations or businesses who may like to join, but are financially struggling, please contact the Board Secretary at
With your support we will ensure the future of Little Tokyo!
