The study will include an in-depth analysis of the historical context of West Hollywood and identify the history of Indigenous peoples and demographic shifts of inhabitants. It will also research racially and culturally discriminatory policies that existed in the area from the 19th century until present day. The findings of the study will inform the City on next steps in establishing initiatives to address social and racial equity.
