Westside Regional Alliance of Councils

WRAC is a cooperative regional coalition of Councils, made up of 14 Neighborhood and Community Councils on the Westside of Los Angeles. WRAC meets regularly on the third Wednesday of every month with the aim of discussing matters of regional interest. We address major issues that impact the Westside, and ask member councils to consider positions that are recommended by the board. When a consensus emerges (as reflected by an affirming vote of nine of its member councils), WRAC adopts the position and expresses it to local law makers, elected officials, and decision makers.  From time to time, we host town hall meetings or community fora to address important issues that affect residents across the Westside of Los Angeles, with the broad-based involvement and input of community stakeholders.

Our leadership board is made up of Community and Neighborhood Council Chairs, Vice-Chairs or appointed representatives, who come together monthly, on a volunteer basis, to consider these important issues. Members are appointed by their councils – each council appoints a Primary and an Alternate representative to the WRAC board.
