“We celebrate American workers for their hard work, resilience and remarkable achievements to our communities and country,” said Casey Wasserman, Los Angeles 2024 chairman. “Los Angeles 2024 is proud to stand with workers as we look forward together to delivering an unforgettable global celebration of sport that benefits all Angelenos and the Olympic Movement should our city be awarded the great honor of being named host city for the 2024 Games.

“We are prepared to show the world how the new LA can deliver an innovative, sustainable and low-risk New Games for a new era.”
