Green LA Confidential

We would be honored if you would join us at Green LA Confidential on August 4, 2012, as we host an evening of improv and storytelling featuring LA’s environmental leaders, at 7:00 pm at The Last Bookstore in downtown Los Angeles.
This night promises to be an original fund and ally-raising event. Jill Bourque, a highly acclaimed comedian, improviser and producer, will direct Green LA Confidential with a cast of Green LA members. The interactive show will compellingly portray Green LA’s important advocacy work and will demonstrate why the Green LA Coalition is the city’s go to environmental organization. Join us as we honor Paula A. Daniels, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s senior policy advisor and the founding chair of the Los Angeles Food Policy Council.
Your tax-deductible donation (via your ticket purchase) will go directly towards supporting Green LA’s mission to transform Los Angeles into a just and sustainable city. We look forward to seeing you on August 4 at The Last Bookstore!
Cheers!
