Vote for #LAGetsThere for the LA2050 Challenge
September 8, 2014 Leave a comment
The Safe Routes to School National Partnership, Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, Multicultural Communities for Mobility, Advancement Project, Team Friday, Learn Do Share LA, HubLA (and more!) are all partnering through the Los Angeles County Active Transportation Collaborative to compete for a LA2050 grant that will change the narrative about mobility in LA County and lift up the voices of people who walk, ride a bike and take transit.
If awarded, the project will highlight how people across Los Angeles County are currently traveling and support a shared vision of not only regional success for mobility, but also empathy and compassion for travel needs of all users — all ages, abilities and income levels. These stories can reframe the narrative on mobility in LA by Angelenos themselves, from their own experiences and hopes. By infusing important transportation policy conversations with real experiences from people throughout the region, particularly in traditionally underserved communities like Central, South and East LA, the Gateway Cities and San Gabriel Valley, we hope to unite diverse perspectives around common themes and galvanize support for a transportation system that improves safety and independence for all.
