    Who is hosting this summit? And who are the keynote speakers?

  • The summit is not being sponsored by an organization, but a group of activists that are tired of the hit and run issues facing the city. A speaker’s list hasn’t been announced, but you can see more on who is organizing/attending at the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1499439016937225/?fref=ts

    It’s great to have a grassroots organization doing something like this. But I am disappointed that it’s the same night the City of Los Angeles Bicycle Advisory Committee meets. (We meet the same night every other month.) We’re grassroots, too – that’s why we volunteer from each council district in the City.

    I know a lot of people who would have wanted to go to this meeting but no one knew about it. I see only 57 people going so far. Tonight also is election night. Sounds like a good agenda wish I knew about it sooner.
