ACT-LA Equity in Motion: Town Hall on Housing & Transportation

JOIN ACT-LA WED JUNE 12 FOR A TOWN HALL ON HOUSING AND TRANSPORTATION. Location: Watts Labor Community Action Committee | Phoenix Hall 10950 S. Central Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90059 Time: 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm The LA region is currently investing $160 billion into a massive expansion of its transit system, making it the nation’s largest investment in public transit infrastructure. ACT-LA’s event, Equity in Motion: Town Hall on Housing and Transportation, will bring together transit riders, residents, advocates, elected officials, and Metro’s CEO, for a discussion on how regional investments in public transit can be made equitably. Done right, new mobility options will connect our region and create opportunities for equitable development in transit oriented communities. Or done wrong, they will worsen traffic congestion and exacerbate what is already the worst homelessness and housing affordability crisis in the nation. The evening’s conversation will lift solutions to Los Angeles’s housing affordability and jobs challenges, and explore making public transit free. Join us for a genuine community discussion around the problems of displacement and traffic congestion, and how can all lead together across jurisdictions to advance solutions. The town hall speakers include Phillip Washington, CEO of Metro; Jackie Dupont-Walker, Metro Board Director; Meghan Sahli-Wells, Mayor of Culver City; Richard Rojas, City of Compton’s Director of Community Development and Michael Flad, City Manager of the City of South Gate. The conversation will be moderated by Anisha Hingorani, Senior Policy Analyst with Advancement Project CA.
