TONIGHT: Mayor Bass to deliver first State of the City Address

LOS ANGELES — Tonight, Mayor Karen Bass will deliver her first State of the City Address where she will speak on her work over the last 127 days and share her vision for a New Los Angeles that is stronger, healthier, happier and safer. 

In her remarks, Mayor Bass will highlight key accomplishments in her first 127 days in office, including addressing encampments citywide bringing more than 1,000 Angelenos inside through the new Inside Safe program and making strides to make Los Angeles safer. She'll also touch on helping SEIU 99 and LAUSD to come to an agreement to reopen schools, launching a proactive approach to repair potholes, and ensuring that record storms have led to record rainwater capture.   

But the crux of the speech will be laying out where we go from here – a New LA.

Tomorrow morning, Mayor Bass will unveil a budget that includes historic investments in our fight to end homelessness and bold strategies to make our city safer. 

Logistics For Tonight:

  • Continuing to “lock arms,” City Council President Paul Krekorian and Chair of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Janice Hahn will make introductory remarks. 

  • Mayor Bass is slated to take the stage by 5:50 PM. She is expected to speak for about 30 minutes.

  • The online stream will feature a QR code calling on Angelenos to sign up at – because we can only confront these crises if all Angelenos have skin in the game. 

  • To commemorate her first State of the City, City Hall this evening will be lit green, yellow and red in honor of the Los Angeles City flag.  

Due to limited capacity, RSVP's are closed. Watch the State of the City live on the @MayorOfLA Facebook page or

Tomorrow morning, Mayor Bass will release her first City budget. More information will follow this afternoon.
