We're back at it! Join us in the Valley on Saturday, October 21 for the Tripping Point 2: a free, full day advocacy training summit, complete with food, childcare, and Spanish/English translation.
The Tripping Point is led by Investing in Place, and is co-hosted by Los Angeles Walks, AARP, the American Heart Association, the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, Koreatown Youth & Community Center, LURN, Outfront/JCDecaux, and Southern California Resource Services for Independent Living.
On Thursday, October 26 at 5pm Los Angeles Walks will host an AB 390 Happy Hour to celebrate this important victory. Free drinks and snacks! Bring your crossing citation for a free giveaway!
Earlier this month, after months of advocacy by Los Angeles Walks, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill 390 into law. The bill clarified language in the crosswalk law, which now allows pedestrians to step off the curb to cross the street when the countdown clock shows adequate time to cross safely. (It's no longer illegal!)
We are so grateful to Assembly Member Santiago and LA City Council Member Huizar for their leadership on this issue, and for making it legal to walk in Los Angeles!
This event is presented by Los Angeles Walks and Samuel Chu.
Come galavant Glendale Boulevard with Los Angeles Walks and walk leader Bj Kavadas as we follow the route of the old Pacific Electric Red Cars through Atwater Village, Silver Lake, Echo Park, Historic Filipinotown, and Bunker Hill.
Glendale Boulevard is home to walkable commercial districts, historic sites, vibrant murals, and great lessons about how to design cities for pedestrian enjoyment (see Echo Park Lake, above). The juxtapose of old and new models of urbanism makes it a perfect street to discuss what Los Angeles was, what it is, and what it will become. As we walk, we will have the opportunity to discuss the various aspects of the built environment in each neighborhood and ideas on how to continue improving the City of Los Angeles for the pedestrian.
