“LET US TOUCH THE DYING, THE POOR, THE LONELY AND THE UNWANTED ACCORDING TO THE GRACES WE HAVE RECEIVED AND LET US NOT BE ASHAMED OR SLOW TO DO THE HUMBLE WORK. ” ~ MOTHER TERESA
The Los Angeles Business Council hosted their annual Mayoral Housing, Transportation & Jobs Summit at UCLA on November 22, 2019.
It’s an educational and policy forum in Southern California aimed at addressing main issues around housing affordability, equitable economic development, and access to transportation. In November discussions were around how to leverage new market opportunities for growing small business, collaborative, statewide solutions to housing affordability and homelessness, as well as leveraging Los Angeles’ public transportation investments.
My knowledge expanded attending this summit and learned of a resource from McKinsey Global Institute that provided some solid facts and solutions on affordable housing in Los Angeles. Details in report https://mck.co/2QRdVdY
Agreed Mark Ridley-Thomas on your thoughts on homelessness, “I think we need to move beyond the rhetoric of thinking outside of the box and act like we have a crisis of consequence that confronts us, not only in Los Angeles but across the state.”
