M.O.V.E. L.A.’s Valentine’s Fundraiser – WE LOVE LA

InvitationFeb10.jpg

Move
LA
initiated the concept for Measure R, a 1/2 cent sales tax for transportation that
68% of LA County voters approved on the November, 2008 ballot.  We also built the business, labor, and environmental
coalition to support Measure R
.  Thus began a 30-year revenue stream of nearly $40
billion
, 70% of which will be used to build a
modern, robust transit system for Los Angeles County.

The challenge now is to complete the Measure R public transit program in 10
years – not 30.
That is the work of Move LA!

We look forward to seeing you at our first "We Love LA (County & City) Valentine’s Celebration!"
