Land Acknowledgement

Inner City Law Center recognizes Los Angeles as land originally and still inhabited by the Tongva, Tataviam, Serrano, Kizh, and Chumash Peoples. We recognize them as the traditional stewards of these lands and acknowledge the legacy of violence, displacement, and genocide they suffered and survived at the hands of colonizers. We honor and pay respect to their ancestors while standing alongside their descendants as they continue to resist systems of oppression and work toward healing and justice. This land acknowledgment is an important step in confronting our history and committing ourselves to truth, healing, and the preservation of the Indigenous history, culture, and sovereignty.
