Within advocaSC, there are three different branches
you can choose to dedicate your time to. Each branch has its unique focus, making advocaSC a great place
to make the most of your individual skillset and interests.

Primarily, we are an organization focused on advocating for policy change. Through phonebanking/
campaigning, working with local policymakers, and coalition building with other advocates across our
campus and region, and more, we want to affect change in the lack of affordable housing, the criminalization of
being unhoused, the lack of access to basic needs, and any other issue impacting those who are unhoused
or experiencing poverty.
Education & Outreach
Being as passionate as we are about invoking change, we want to do our part in educating our communities
in a way that inspires collective action and drive. Here are some of the broad topics we work to raise
How USC has contributed to and benefited from gentrification and poverty in L.A.
The intersectionality of poverty, education, racism, healthcare, and so much more
What we can all do to advocate for a truly equitable Los Angeles
To accomplish this, we host speaker events, publish outreach materials, and partner with educators to make
these things common knowledge.
Our members also engage with the L.A. community further through direct service projects. Our service will be
based on sustainable partnerships and efficacy and equity, and we make sure to do our research to ensure
the fulfillment of these conditions. For example, one of the organizations we currently work with is Feed the
Streets L.A. through which we gather funds and materials to directly distribute to unhoused people or those
in need in the Hollywood and Skid Row neighborhoods.
