I am pleased to share the exciting news that Los Angeles has been selected as the U.S. candidate city to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Now is the time for us join together in supporting LA 2024’s efforts to bring the Games back to the United States for the first time in nearly 30 years. It is critically important that we unite in this effort as we rally the support of both Southern California and the nation.
As a two-time Olympic host, LA is one of the world’s great Olympic cities and this bid will make an incredibly compelling case for returning to America’s Olympic City for a third time. Los Angeles is also a forward-thinking, multicultural city, full of youthful, vibrant and innovative people who love sport, and the Olympic and Paralympic movements. In keeping with that spirit, Los Angeles’ concept for the 2024 Games is innovative and exciting, while maintaining deep connections with LA’s Olympic past.
I look forward to sharing additional details as we near the 2015 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Assembly this fall. In the meantime, we hope you’ll join us in the campaign for LA 2024.

Thank you in advance for your support.
