BROAD-BASED COMMUNITY ORGANIZING: LOVING THY NEIGHBOR IN ACTION
Robert Hoo is the Lead Organizer for One LA-IAF, a non-partisan, non-profit organization of congregations and community institutions dedicated to organizing and acting together to improve the quality of life for all Angelenos.
Broad based organizing uses stories to step beyond ideologies, both left and right, creating common ground and advancing the common good. One LA has achieved access to health care for 150,000 undocumented immigrants and leveraged hundreds of millions of dollars in investment in low-income communities. One LA is an affiliate of the Industrial Areas Foundation, the oldest and largest community organizing network in the country.
Robert Hoo has over fifteen years of organizing experience with the Industrial Areas Foundation in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Sacramento. Robert received a B.A. in Political Science and a J.D. from Yale University, where he was an Arthur Liman Public Interest Fellow.
