EQUITY FOR THE DIASPORA ONE NEIGHBORHOOD AT A TIME
RLA creates opportunities for empowerment, growth, and improvement by making resources ( public and private ) available to analyze complex urban planning and develop resiliency measures. Building community engagement through systems and programming that find sustainable and equitable solutions for our city.
Our goal is to create pathways for workforce development and entrepreneurship to improve the import and export of talents and products of the diaspora.
We have a clear and direct vision.
Create equity for the diaspora by focusing all resources (financial and economic) available on one community at a time.
GROWTH AND SUSTAINABILITY
We ensure the growth and sustainability of low-income (diaspora) communities of NYC one-step at a time.
Ricardo Lopez and Associates wants us to be the change that we want to see. Everyone has a stake in ensuring resiliency, and RLA is the drive to achieve that.
We collaborate and request support from local partners, small businesses, government agencies and local philanthropists.
