Sustainability: Cultural + Economic + Environmental


Sustainable Little Tokyo is a community-driven initiative working to ensure a healthy, equitable, and culturally rich Little Tokyo for generations to come. SLT began in 2013 as a multi-day community vision effort and has evolved into a holistic, neighborhood-wide campaign to promote the environmental, economic, and cultural sustainability of Little Tokyo.

Little Tokyo is a California Cultural District!

Little Tokyo is one of 14 of the inaugural California Cultural Districts (CCD) and one of only two in the City of Los Angeles! CCDs highlight the cultural legacy of our state's most valuable resource—its diversity. Each district helps grow and sustain authentic arts and culture opportunities, increase the visibility of local artists, and promote socio-economic and ethnic diversity through culture and creative expression.
