For the last few weeks I’ve been helping to launch a new venture for GOOD called GOOD Local. The idea is to use the editorial voice and collaborative values of GOOD to serve the residents of a specific geographic area. We’ll build communities by covering and partnering with the people, and organizations there that are moving the city forward. We’ll throw and co-host events to help fans of GOOD connect and work together in real life. And we’ll give you the ideas and tools you can use to become a better citizen of where you live.

So of course it made sense to start GOOD Local here, right in our own hometown of Los Angeles. We like to call it GOOD LA.

If you haven’t signed up already, you can join GOOD LA here, and you’ll start getting a one-good-LA-thing-per-day email (written by me!). In the last few weeks I’ve written about so many exciting things, from an incredible idea to raise money for nonprofits in closed restaurants to a Facebook group where you can share photos of forgotten LA to a group of students who are trying to convince LAUSD to band Styrofoam, to a new store and cafe run by formerly-homeless women at the Downtown Women’s Center. You can get a feel for the LA stories you’ll get in your inbox by checking out the GOOD LA page.

In addition, you’ll be the first to find out about GOOD LA events (like this one we had last month at Atwater Crossing, or a really cool one happening this Thursday—stay tuned!), take part in the GOOD Challenges (like this month’s to stop driving so damn much), and contribute to GOOD LA projects (like this one, to be announced tomorrow).

What’s that? I need even more GOOD LA, you say? Well, you’re in luck! You can also follow GOOD LA on Facebook and Twitter (spoiler: also written by me) to get more news and events from around town. Let me know what you think, and if you’ve got something you think I should cover, let me know at alissa[at]goodinc[dot]com. And thank you!
