A Staying Connected Series webcast on how LA and its manufacturers quickly adapted during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City of LA has proven an effective leader in the fight against the spread of COVID-19. They’ve worked hard to empower local manufacturers to produce personal protective equipment, match supply with need, and give voice to those with solutions.
