Meet the SLATE-Z Operations/Backbone Team

To support LATTC in fulfilling its responsibilities as the Lead Agency, the SLATE-Z collective has established an Operations/Backbone Team to coordinate the activities of the partnership towards the goals and objectives of the SLATE-Z Promise Zone plan. The SLATE-Z Operations Team is a fiscally sponsored project of Community Partners - a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization, based at LATTC, and is supported by philanthropic grants.
