|The Little Tokyo Community Impact Fund (LTCIF) is excited to announce that we will hold additional open meetings to present the formation of a community-benefit investment fund aimed at helping to preserve the historic ethnic neighborhood of Little Tokyo.
The LTCIF held a public meetings at the JACCC in August, and a second information session at the Gardena JCI in September. According to members of the LTCIF Organizing Committee, “Approximately 75 attended the meeting with great interest in Little Tokyo; and around 55 attended the session at Gardena JCI to hear more about this new effort.”
Two more meetings are scheduled to be held in Little Tokyo on Oct. 20th for Japanese-speaking people, and for those who could not attend the first two gatherings. The two sessions take place at the Union Church in Little Tokyo on Saturday, Oct. 20th:
• 1 pm – 2:30 pm will be held in Japanese
• 3 pm – 4:30 pm will be held in English
The LTCIF is seeking investors who are willing to invest in the fund (a minimum of $10,000) and will receive a moderate rate of return on investment and at the same time be helping to preserve our community history, heritage, and culture.”
Everyone is invited to attend and to learn about the LTCIF and how they can participate in this exciting new venture to support the community. More public meetings are being planned for other regions of the Southland.
