The Empowerment Congress West Neighborhood Development Council (ECWANDC) grew out of the “Campaign for a New Eighth District” initiated by Councilmember Mark Ridley-Thomas on January 23, 1992, to enhance the quality of life for Los Angeles residents. Starting in 2002, the ECWANDC is now part of a citywide system of neighborhood councils established under Article X of the Los Angeles City Charter to promote more citizen participation in government and make government more responsive to local needs. ECWA was certified by the city of Los Angeles on March 23, 2002.
