AUG. 29: NextGen Summer Social

The City of West Hollywood will host a NextGen Summer Social on Monday, August 29, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. at the West Hollywood Park Aquatic and Recreation Center Respite Deck, located at 8750 El Tovar Place. The event will be an opportunity for West Hollywood’s Next Generation to meet neighbors and local business owners, learn more about the City’s NextGen initiative, and provide feedback about upcoming programming and events. People who live, work, and play in West Hollywood are encouraged to come, mix, and mingle. 

NextGen is a civic participation initiative aimed at engaging constituents under the age of 40 who would like to get involved with civic life, and particularly people who are interested in being involved in the evolution of government programs and services in West Hollywood over the coming decades. The event is aimed at NextGen community members, but is open to everyone. Attendance at the NextGen event is free, but advance RSVPs are requested. To RSVP, please visit https://nextgensummersocial.splashthat.com.

In 2016, the City of West Hollywood launched the NextGen initiative aimed at enhancing outreach and engagement with the City’s 40-and-under population.  The movement represented an intentional shift in the way the City engages with the new generation of residents and community members. Nearly half of residents in the City of West Hollywood are under the age of 40. Yet many younger people in the City are not actively engaged in local decision-making. The NextGen is passionate about a myriad of issues, yet this age group is disproportionately underrepresented at all levels of governmental leadership, as well as in the voting electorate. 

For more information, please contact Jasmine Duckworth, Community Programs Coordinator for the City of West Hollywood, at (323) 848-6559 or jduckworth@weho.org. For people who are Deaf or hard of hearing, please call TTY (323) 848-6496.

Let’s make this an inclusive city. Was’t that the original idea? Now we have boundaries of all descriptions. The Alphabet cliques, young, older, colorations religious definitions. Aren’t we the United States of America? Too much dissension! Makes people insecure and angry.

Next generation. Should be under 30. Not 40. That’s middle-aged. The city has nothing else to do except invent all these endless days. Just to give some political hack like Shyne to promote her Block by Block million dollar farce supervised by a convicted robber and murderer & a drunk driver.. honored by the city council. What a joke this place is!
