September 9th Partner Meeting and Reception

Please join us on Wednesday September 9th at 3pm at the California Endowment’s Yosemite Conference room in downtown Los Angeles for our next partner meeting.

The event is free, but registration will be required for admittance.  RSVP today at our eventbrite page.

We are excited to have finished our public comment letter to Metro with framework recommendations for the potential 2016 Transportation Ballot Measure and we invite you to sign on and join us!  And then please RSVP to join partners across Los Angeles County on September 9th to review, discuss and refine these ideas and efforts for the coming months.

We are excited to share that our keynote speaker on September 9th will be Vien Truong, National Director at Green For All, a national initiative to build an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty. She previously led the Greenlining Institute’s Environmental Equity team. Vien helped pass SB 535 (de Leon, 2012) which directs a quarter of California’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund to disadvantaged communities.

After Vien’s presentation we will dive into the framework recommendations for Metro’s potential 2016 ballot measure, and then after celebrate our partnerships with food and drinks in the California Endowment’s outdoor courtyard. We hope you’ll join us!  And we’ve set up ticket registration so you can attend the working meeting from 3pm – 5pm, or just the reception from 5pm – 6pm – or both!

Draft Agenda:

3pm Welcome and Who’s in the Room
3:15pm Keynote Address: Vien Truong, Chief Operating Officer of the Dream Corps & National Director Green for All
3:40pm Q & A with Vien
4pm – 5pm Discussions: Updates on Metro timelines and meetings, feedback on our framework letter, platform development, developing our speaker’s bureau, updates from partners and more!
5pm – 6pm Reception and fun in the outdoor courtyard

This meeting is made possible by TransitCenter.  We are grateful for their financial support!
