We're Taking Legal Action to Close the Digital Divide in LA County 

On January 20, 2023, we gave notice to the LA County Board of Supervisors of our intent to challenge their decision to approve new changes to the LA County Code that fast-track the deployment of wireless broadband, violate the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), eliminate citizen input, and lack sufficient fire and safety protections that other California municipalities are putting in their codes. 

This is not a step we took lightly. We have tried for months to engage the Board of Supervisors and the County Planning Department in meaningful and positive dialogue, but our requests to meet have been refused. Instead, the Planning Department and the wireless industry convinced the Board to approve changes in the code that violate the rights and jeopardize the future for unserved and underserved communities in LA County. 

Our legal team will be in court on March 12th, and we need your physical and financial support! Please consider a making a donation to the FFLA legal fund to help us protect your rights and your future!

We are a coalition of local community and national non-profit organizations with one mission: to ensure that everyone in Los Angeles has access to safe, reliable, affordable, high-speed broadband connections. Our legal and technical experts have many years of experience working with municipalities across the country who are facing exactly the same issues as Los Angeles. In the face of large-scale deployment of new wireless antennas, other cities and towns are responding with new codes that are protective of citizen's rights, their safety and their health. The new LA County Codes fail to provide these basic protections. 


If you believe that everyone in LA County deserves fiber optic connections, and if you believe that the job of the municipal government is to serve the interests of the people and not the interests of the wireless industry, we hope you will support our efforts with your financial donation!
