Spring Into Health

NANDC has been sponsoring the Spring Into Health fair for the last several years. We hold it in the April timeframe and include health workshops, demos, free grocery bags and give-aways. We like to tie in to Earth Day with an Earth Day Celebration: Gardening projects, free herbs and vegetable plants. Often we include entertainment: DJ, demonstrations, guest speakers, youth performers, fitness classes and Zumba. We partner with Recreation and Parks for this free event.

Our Name

The early Eighth District Empowerment Congress, created by now Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas was a community-based education and mobilization program. It has been acknowledged as the model for the Los Angeles citywide neighborhood council system created by the change City Charter.

We still proudly carry the early moniker in our name as the 'Empowerment Congress North Area Neighborhood Development Council'.  Call us NANDC for short!

Our Community

NANDC is located in West Adams, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, with most of its buildings erected between 1880 and 1925. It was once the wealthiest district in the city, with its Victorian mansions and sturdy Craftsman bungalows home to Downtown businessmen and professors and academicians at USC. In the 1990s, three areas of West Adams were designated as Historic Preservation Overlay Zones by the city of Los Angeles, in recognition of their outstanding architectural heritage.
