After the victories of Measures R + M + H, we approach Move LA's 9th Annual Transportation Conversation and our 10th year as an organization asking, “What’s Next, LA?” The Conference agenda is structured around our action program. We will discuss new challenges from affordable housing near transit to transit ridership, goods movement, clean air and climate change, and addresses them with the same thoughtful, future-oriented, pro-active, results-oriented, and comprehensive solutions that we have always looked to achieve.
Check out the bios for our major speakers and the full agenda.
