Join the Healthy, Equitable, Active Land Use (HEALU) Network for Part 4 of their four-part summit series, Equity as a Through Line: Social Movements, Public Finance, and Infrastructure Investments for Healthy Communities. In recent years, the voters of Los Angeles County have shown up at the ballot box and agreed to tax ourselves to support investments in safe and high-quality parks, affordable and accessible transportation, healthy and affordable housing, and a more water-conscious, water-resilient future. These new investments will generate over $1 billion per year in LA County for basic community infrastructure that has the potential to promote health, safety, livability, and sustainability. This summit will explore how we measure need and success in these efforts. Through interactive discussions and speaker presentations, we will explore questions such as:
- How will we know if we’re “moving the needle” on equity with these infrastructure measures?
- What should we measure and what data should we collect? What’s the next thing we need to map?
- What challenges and successes have we faced with each of the recent LA County infrastructure measures (A, H, M, and W)? How can we coordinate evaluation efforts across these measures?
- How can we better equip residents and community-based organizations to use data in their advocacy efforts?
