To provide some guidance, the Grants and Professional Development team will host the annual OGP Reporting 101 Workshop via webinar to make it more accessible for all OGP grantees. This webinar will provide a walkthrough of where to find and how to fill out the reporting forms in the Fluid Review online platform, an overview of the report questions and an explanation of the required documents that will need to be attached to the report to effectively document the activities and learnings that have evolved through the implementation of the OGP-funded project.

Participants will be guided in reflecting on how their organizations’ missions and core values align with and support the goals of the Cultural Equity and Inclusion Initiative (CEII). All workshop participants will leave with a beginning draft statement, policy, and plan as well as strategies for communicating with their boards to allow for adoption in advance of the fall Organization Grant Program application period.

Pre-Work recommended

Attendees should bring a copy of their organization’s mission statement and core values (if applicable).

Who Should Attend?

All current and prospective OGP grantees applying in fall 2019 are welcome to attend, particularly those that do not yet have formal cultural equity policies or plans, (as relates to staff, board, and/or programming) in place. Attendees should be individual(s) who have influence and ability to engage the organization’s staff and board in this work, and/or have a current role and responsibility related to the organization’s cultural equity work. Teams from organizations, including board members, are strongly encouraged to attend.

| The Fort Moore Pioneer Memorial

The Fort Moore Pioneer Memorial is the largest bas relief military monument in the United States that is located at the actual site it commemorates. Originally dedicated in 1958, it is set to be rededicated on July 3, 2019.

The monument features a terra-cotta memorial wall, an 80-foot waterfall, and a pylon/flag pole. Its memorial wall depicts scenes of the migration, settlement, and expansion of Los Angeles after the Mexican-American War. Since 2016, the LA County Arts Commission and Public Works have been working to restore the monument. The pylon and flag pole commemorate the site of the original Fort Moore, where Los Angeles’ first US flag was flown, and the first local Fourth of July was celebrated.

At the July 3 re-dedication, visitors will see the waterfall, which has been turned on again for the first time in almost 42 years and has been made more environmentally sustainable. There will also be a new time capsule sealed during the ceremony—containing stories, memories, and mementos that represent LA County’s cultural, geographic, and historic diversity.
