Peter Palandjian, CEO of Intercontinental Real Estate Corporation, was recognized with a 2020 City of Justice Award by the Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy (LAANE), which honors outstanding leaders who are improving the lives of working families in southern California. Palandjian was given the award on December 3rd during LAANE’s virtual 2020 City of Justice Awards dinner, which regularly attracts close to 1,000 attendees including elected officials, labor leaders, philanthropists and activists.
“For the past 25 years, LAANE has been at the forefront of improving working conditions for hundreds of thousands of working families in southern California,” said Peter Palandjian. “I’m humbled to be recognized by such a groundbreaking, effective organization that has improved so many lives. Together, I’m confident we can continue building thriving communities in Los Angeles and beyond.”
Founded in 1993, LAANE is a nationally recognized advocacy organization dedicated to building a new economy for all. Combining dynamic research, innovative public policy, and strategic organizing of broad alliances, LAANE promotes a new economic approach based on good jobs, thriving communities, and a healthy environment. The 2020 City of Justice Awards was their most successful fundraiser to date, raising over $1 million dollars. Peter Palandjian is a member of the LAANE Advisory Board.
“LAANE is profoundly moved by the generosity and the work of Peter Palandjian,” said Stella Maloyan, Development Director at LAANE. “He demonstrates that not only is it possible to conduct high road business that honors working families, but that is also profitable.”
