The Key to Continued Success in the #PlayForAll Movement

 
2018 was an impactful year for LA84. We worked with an incredible lineup of partners and community organizations committed to closing the Play Equity gap. It was this teamwork that helped drive real change for our youth. The #PlayForAll Movement will go far, but only if we go together.
This year's Summit saw 39 speakers, 400 attendees and eight sponsors from across the country gather together to share stories and inspire action. A partnership with NBC Sports, focused on the impact of the 1968 Olympic Games.
