Meet Our Champion for Equity Awards Honoree

Catalyst California is honored to present Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell with the Champion for Equity Award for her demonstrated commitment to racial equity throughout her career. Whether as a nonprofit executive, a member of the California State Assembly or Senate, and now as an LA County Supervisor we have counted on her savvy, strategic, and principled leadership on behalf of this state’s communities of color.  

As the daughter of parents who were public servants and a third-generation Angeleno, Mitchell leads with a deep understanding of the vital safety net LA County provides to millions of families and is committed to ensuring that all residents can thrive.  

Since being elected to the Board of Supervisors on November 3rd, 2020, Supervisor Mitchell has made poverty alleviation a countywide priority and has anchored an equitable recovery plan from the health and economic pandemic caused by COVID-19. Within her first year as Supervisor and with support from the County Board of Supervisors, Mitchell passed a landmark guaranteed income program, made LA County the first in the nation to phase out urban oil drilling and has strengthened the County’s ability to quickly respond to mental health crises among our unhoused residents. 

Supervisor Mitchell represents two million residents of Los Angeles County’s Second District - including the neighborhood she grew up in - Leimert Park, along with the cities of Carson, Compton, Culver City, El Segundo, Gardena, Hawthorne, Hermosa Beach, Inglewood, Lawndale, Los Angeles (portions), Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, and a dozen unincorporated communities.
