The Los Angeles-based Public Matters is an award-winning and interdisciplinary social enterprise that creates place-based and socially-engaged civic engagement projects that advance social change. Public Matters consists of a multi-generational team of artists, educators, media professionals, and Fellows working together to strengthen the creative, economic, political, and social capital of marginalized communities. In doing so, Public Matters aims to expand opportunity across generations and advance a more just society.

With generous support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Kiley Arroyo lead an organizational learning and effectiveness initiative for Public Matters that resulted in the production of a new 3-year strategic development plan.
