To support Fellows Mike de la Rocha and Pete White and the innovative EcoHood project to provide sustainable housing in LA, Summit Impact hosted a dinner at LA CAN with Summit community members. From rooftop toasts to deep dinner-table discussions to live poetry, it was a beautiful night of connection, learning, and committing to a better future.

The self-described creative that almost never was, Artie Gonzales is working to build new bridges through his storytelling platform, Lessons from a Lifer. By providing creative support, seed grant funds, and a virtual launch event, we gathered community around Artie's meaningful story and vision for the future.

“As someone who has spent most of his professional life looking for ways to create safety for our community at the same time creating racial equity in our work....
I strongly believe that at this historical moment in our country, the Summit community through its entrepreneurial and technological knowhow can amplify the voices of reform in a way that many others can’t... to bring criminal justice reform for our community and a better future for all of us.”
