In the summer of 1987, two Los Angeles DJs — Matt Dike and Michael Ross — converted a tiny L.A. apartment into a recording studio and started a record label called Delicious Vinyl. Championing artists from the streets and delivering music to dance floors and living rooms worldwide, the upstart label quickly made hip hop history.
Dreamhausla was developed to serve as a catalyst for social change through the arts and be a home for innovation, education and creativity. We hope to be pioneers in South Los Angeles by hosting programs, workshops and events that involve our youth and fellow artists within our community.

HERB WESSON’S OFFICE (DISTRICT 10)
Los Angeles City Council President Herb J. Wesson, Jr. has served as the President of the Los Angeles City Council since November 2011 and has represented Council District 10 since 2005. Wesson is the first African American to hold the position of Council President in the city’s history and has been re-elected three times to lead the city’s legislative body. During his tenure as Council President, Wesson has presided over monumental policy initiatives making Los Angeles a better place to live, work and raise a family. Not only have local policy initiatives —which include raising the minimum wage, pension reform and consolidating city elections to increase voter turnout— positively affected local residents, but in many cases the city’s actions have spurred state and national response and served as a model for similar policies.

At Omaze we exist to empower nonprofits to do their world-changing work. Unfortunately, that’s harder to do than it should be, because the way we think about charity is broken. Charities are commonly frowned upon for investing in ways to raise awareness—it’s almost like they’re not “allowed” to market themselves the way for-profit companies do. Traditionally, they are forced to rely on time-intensive galas, expensive dinners and black-tie auctions to raise large sums of money from a limited donor base. However, these events are usually only once or twice a year, pricey to organize and accessible only to those who can afford it. So the charity’s ongoing fundraising needs are often not met. Think there’s a better way? So do we!
