Join LTCC in Celebrating 20 Years

LTCC came into existence in 1999 when several community leaders, heads of non-profit organizations, business owners and residents agreed that a formal organization was needed to help share information and to deal with the ongoing issues of this historic downtown neighborhood.

In 2019, we are celebrating 20 years of bringing the community together to address the key issues, and fighting for a strong and vibrant future while maintaining our historic and cultural roots.

We invite you to join us in this year-long celebration, and support LTCC in our 20th Anniversary Sponsorship Campaign. Funds raised from sponsorship will support the work of LTCC and strengthen our efforts to advocate on behalf of Little Tokyo.

Since our formation in 1999, LTCC has helped organize and lead the community in

  • Stopping the City of Los Angeles from construction a jail next-door to the Nishi Hongwanji Buddhist Temple on First Street

  • Achieved pushing the Regional Connector Transit Line completely underground as a subway, eliminating major divisions and impacts to the neighoborhood

  • Won significant mitigations from Metro for construction on the Regional Connector Transit line for the Little Tokyo neighborhood

  • Fought for and achieved the construction of the Judge John Aiso Parking Garage to increase the amount of cheap, short-term parking

  • Successfully advocated against the most harmful routes through Little Tokyo, proposed by Metro for the West Santa Ana Branch Transit Line

  • and much more!
