Los Angeles County is being reinvented -- in large part because of Measure R -- moving from "sprawl to community development, from car dependence to transit orientation, from municipal fiefdoms to functional realism, from inequality to equity," to use the words of Dr. Manuel Pastor. Research shows that regions with more equitable development result in more sustainable economic growth but realizing this vision, which Dr. Pastor calls "Just Growth," in Los Angeles requires collaboration on new policies that help move us from vision to reality. Dr. Pastor, director of USC's Program for Environmental and Regional Equity, will discuss his new report "An Agenda for Equity: A Framework for Building a Just Transportation System in Los Angeles County" online June 24 at noon.
