About Safe Cities
UN Women is working on ways to make cities safer for women and girls globally. Given the mission of the LA chapter and the success of Safe Cities projects globally, our chapter aims to facilitate the global initiative within local communities here in Los Angeles. The issues of women and girls in Los Angeles are linked to those worldwide and Safe Cities LA hopes to make Los Angeles a UN Global Safe City.

UN Women’s Global Safe Cities projects harness local knowledge to forward pragmatic and contextual solutions. Likewise, Safe Cities LA will be an active discussion amongst a diverse audience of activists and academics about how individuals and organizations can learn more about UN Women’s global projects and make our city a more equitable environment for women and girls.

About UN WOMEN
UN Women is the largest granting organization for women's initiatives around the world.  The Greater Los Angeles Chapter, which was formed in 2011, is committed to further the goals of UN Women: social justice, gender equality, government responsibility for impact of the law, the eradication of poverty and violence against women.

UN Women endeavors globally to make cities safer for women and girls, and we are working locally to ensure Los Angeles takes its place among global Safe Cities where women and girls can enjoy public spaces without fear.  

Thank you for creating a world free of violence for women and girls!
