Who is Marcus Owens?
City Council hopeful, Marcus Owens is devoted to making an impactful change in the world and ensuring equality for all. He has joined several community organizations within his lifetime. He was born and raised in the beautiful and humble town of Southern California, Bakersfield, where he devoted his time volunteering with the Boys and Girls Club whilst working in the retail industry. Wanting to grow and help more people he decided to relocate to the sunny and beloved City of Los Angeles, California.
While here, it became obvious to him that there’s a large community of unhoused families and individuals. Shortly after moving to South LA, Marcus joined several community organizations including Path LA to work on neighborhood beautification operations, education, and vocational training for the youth and unhoused. A few years later while living in Hollywood, Marcus volunteered as an ambassador for the Los Angeles LGBT Center providing housing and job training to struggling youth in the LGBT community. In Santa Monica, homelessness is a very visible issue and one of the biggest causes Marcus is fighting to change.
