Please join the Healthy, Equitable, Active Land Use (HEALU) Network for Part 3 of our four-part summit series, Equity as a Through Line: Social Movements, Public Finance, and Infrastructure Investments for Healthy Communities. Part 3 will explore what it takes to ensure high-quality, equitable community engagement in land use and infrastructure-related efforts. In recent years, Los Angeles has seen a surge of interest and investment in land use policy and infrastructure designed to promote health, livability, and climate resilience—like affordable housing, transit and complete streets, parks and trails, water resilience, and more. But, too often, residents of under-resourced communities have not been engaged as meaningfully as they should be in the decision-making processes shaping their neighborhoods. Given the long-term nature and technical complexity of many land use issues, building broad community awareness and organizational capacity takes time, intentional effort, and adequate resources. This summit will explore what some of LA's leading community-based organizations and government agencies have learned from the engagement efforts they’ve been involved in, and how engagement can and should look moving forward.

When: September 9, 2019
