Dear friends and colleagues:
This month's Local to Global Life Works event is being held in conjunction with GOOD Magazine Los Angeles as a part of the GOOD LA Monthly Meetup series. This event explores "The City as a Canvas for Creative Envisioning," focusing on how to generate good growth, specifically in downtown Los Angeles. The goal of the event is to discuss: positive things being done to create community within the rapidly burgeoning heart of Los Angeles; more things that can be done by individuals, businesses and elected officials to foster good growth initiatives downtown; challenges to generating good growth; and how such challenges can be overcome. We will have some light snacks available and will give a free mini cupcake donated by Big Man Bakes especially for this event to the first 48 registrants! Come prepared to brainstorm and share your visions for the future of downtown Los Angeles!
Lastly, a downtown community member, Coach Ron, is collecting donations for the kids he works with as founder/director of Funzone Kids Reading Club for Skid Row youth. So if you can, please bring something from the list below:
