SPECIAL RATE FOR YOU: MOVE LA 10th Annual Transportation conference

You are invited to attend the 10th Annual Conference of MOVE LA, a transportation coalition of LA County.

Special $25 rate for LAAAC supporters, see link below.

LAAAC partners with MOVE LA on transportation policy advocacy, especially around the needs of older adults and people with disabilities.

We need the aging network engaged in conversations such as these, to ask questions and remind the speakers to think of the aging lens when developing solutions!

 

On March 1 Move LA is staging its 10th Annual Transportation conversation, which has in the past created the coalition and the momentum to win both Measures R (2008) and M (2016)—now providing $120 billion for transportation (70% of it for transit) in LA County. The goal of the 2019 conversation is an expanded coalition across 4 counties and a ballot measure to dump diesel, conquer climate change; expand and electrify Metrolink; and boost investments in local transit both outside and inside LA County. Other topics include strategies to remedy declining transit ridership and the possible role of congestion pricing to achieve that goal, and to produce more affordable housing near transit.

 

This event is renown as featuring the “biggest panels of any conference in the known universe,” as Mayor Garcetti once said. Speakers and panelists include: Kevin De Leon, Former President Pro Tempore, California State Senate; Mary Nichols, Chair, California Air Resources Board; Senator Holly Mitchell; Assemblyman Chris Holden;  Phil Washington, CEO, LA Metro; Stephanie Wiggins, CEO, Metrolink;  Mike Fong, President, LA Community College Board; Margaret Quinones-Perez, Chair, Santa Monica College Board of Trustees; Dr. Don Shoup, former UCLA professor; David Grannis, Point C; Danny Curtin, Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters; Cesar Diaz, CA State Building Trades; John Hakel, SoCal Partnership for Jobs; John Boesel, CALSTART;  Adrian Martinez, Earth Justice; Mark! Lopez, East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice; Quentin Foster, Environmental Defense Fund; Laura Renger, Southern California Edison; Tanya Peacock, Southern California Gas Company; Todd Campbell, Clean Energy; Tracy Hernandez, Los Angeles Business Federation.

 

Register HERE and as a LAAAC supporter, Move LA has offered us the nonprofit discount rate of $25! Networking with a hot breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. The event is in the transit-adjacent Conference Center at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown LA, 55 West Temple St., 90012.
