Let's Do the Big Stuff Holiday Celebration

MLA_BigStuffFinalBanner_RegisterNow_NB700.jpgWe are drawn to do the BIG STUFF needed to address our transit, climate and clean air challenges, lack of affordable housing, and the need for more and more good jobs so people can support their families. We want to keep working on projects that are the scale of Measures R and M—when we were able to start the ball rolling and then convince powerful elected officials, unions, environmentalists and the voters to join us in support of 2 ballot measures providing $120 billion to build out LA County's transit system over 4 decades.

We have more big projects in the works! And we want to honor some of the people who have worked with us on these issues for many years and who continue to work with us to achieve the BIG STUFF now.

  • LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis (invited), for her support of Metro's Fareless System Initiative as chair of the Metro Board, which is now making fares free for K-12 and community college students in LA County
  • Ron Miller, (Retired) Executive Secretary at Los Angeles/Orange Counties Building & Construction Trades Council and Move LA Leadership Board/Executive Committee member, who has made it possible for us to ally ourselves with this very powerful trade union 
  • Joan Ling, Move LA Leadership Board/Executive Committee member and affordable housing ally who has worked with us at the nexus between land use policy and real estate development; affordable housing production and preservation; and community and economic development 
  • Chanell Fletcher, Deputy Executive Officer of Environmental Justice for the California Air Resources Board and former director of ClimatePlan, a statewide coalition of organizations that we've worked with for more than a decade 
  • Alan Greenlee, Executive Director of the Southern California Association of Nonprofit Housing (SCANPH), with whom we have found ways to better meet the needs of nonprofit developers so they can build the housing desperately needed in LA County.

Please join us for drinks and an informal dinner at the Boomtown Brewery in the Arts District on Friday, December 10th from 5:30-8pm.

** Please note that LA county guidelines require all guests to provide proof of vaccination. **
