New Leaders Council

6th Annual Heroes at Villains Awards


Each year, New Leaders Council Los Angeles recognizes leaders who do amazing work advocating for progressive change throughout Los Angeles. These influencers touch a broad range of fields, including education, entertainment, public sector unions, non-profit management, law, medicine, and business.

At our Heroes @ Villains event, we honor progressives who represent us at our best — selfless people and organizations who push to close the income gap, work alongside traditionally marginalized communities, co-power their colleagues, and lift children to unimaginable heights.

Sometimes these heroes are well-known, but often they are unsung leaders who are quietly doing the work that makes LA great. Help us honor them as we celebrate continued efforts to make LA a more progressive place.

2016 Award Winners:
Suzy Jack, Vice President of Public Affairs and Events for The Los Angeles Times
Minds Matter Los Angeles
Samuel Liu, Deputy Chief of Staff to state senator Ben Allen

Sponsorship packages now available.
