The Valley of Change’s mission is to liberate Black people from systems of oppression and brutality. By honoring the intersectionality of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, our efforts expand to uplift all marginalized and underserved communities from systemic inequality and disparate treatment. We aim to actualize our vision through community driven actions, advocating for equitable policy solutions, visible representation and widespread education.
Latora Green is the proud co-founder and Executive Director of The Valley of Change, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The Valley of Change gathers daily on ‘the little corner of Big change,’ in front of the Sherman Oaks Galleria from 12-8pm to protest for equal rights for ALL. TVOC was inspired by the Black Lives Matter Movement in direct response to Justice for George Floyd.
Latora is a wife, mother and activist raised in Orlando, FL. She relocated to LA with her family in June 2006 and has been an active part of her local neighborhood ever since. With over 16 years of experience in the HR field, Latora has dedicated her time outside of the office to a lifetime of activism; honoring her passion for helping others and giving back to the community. She has volunteered at the Ronald McDonald House, PATH, many other local organizations and numerous food banks.
Some of her activist career highlights include planning Healthy and Whole: Alabama Wellness Fair in Birmingham, Alabama and flying to Flint, Michigan to assist during the ongoing water crisis. She always dreamt of creating her own non-profit and co-founding the Valley of Change has been a dream come true.
When she’s not fighting for global change, Latora enjoys singing, dancing and making people laugh.
