Become a Sponsor to Support Civic Engagement and Conversation

During this turbulent time, Southern Californians are wanting more information than ever from local and state leaders. The Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall is on the forefront of bringing those local community and international leaders to a wide city, state and national audience, through livestreaming webinars. Whether it is thought provoking insight on the upcoming election or the COVID-19 impact on Los Angeles, we have it covered. This means, our reach can include your brand in touching so many people.

Our members and audience include significant figures from the worlds of business, philanthropy, education, medicine, the arts, government, the non-profit sector, aerospace, entertainment and technology, amongst others.

They represent all ages, races, religions, and walks of life -- a microcosm of the cultural diversity to be found in Los Angeles. What binds them together is a common interest in national and international affairs, a shared desire to examine every facet of the important issues we face, and a willingness to hear opposing points of view with grace and civility.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, please contact Christina Doheny at to develop the right sponsorship package for you.

Thank you,
The Los Angeles World Affairs Council & Town Hall
