Christine Margiotta, Executive Director of Social Venture Partners Los Angeles (SVPLA), has dedicated her career to harnessing the collective power of Angelenos to create unprecedented large-scale social change.
Christine brings over 15 years of experience working on a wide range of issues including homelessness, education, economic justice, racial equity, and LGBTQ rights.
