  • Friday 3/9 – The L.A. Street Vendor Campaign and East L.A. Community Corporation host a rally for women street vendors. The rally protests a proposed business veto which would give private property owners the power to deny vending permits on public sidewalks; a business veto would leave vendors vulnerable to abusive practices including extortion. The rally will take place from 9-11 a.m. in front of L.A. City Hall at 200 N. Spring Street in downtown L.A. Details at Facebook event.
  • Friday 3/9 – The Pasadena Complete Streets Coalition, BikeSGV and others host Bike Art Night Pasadena, an easy, fun exploration ride. Meet at 6 p.m. at Memorial Gold Line Station. RSVPs required via Eventbrite.
  • Sunday 3/11 – The Lady Bridge Runners will host their Amigas Who Run community run in honor of Women’s History Month. This 4th annual free 3.2-mile community run is designed to bring women-identified folks of all levels together in an action of solidarity with women athletes and activists world wide. Arrive starting at 6 a.m for 7:15 a.m program and 8 a.m. run start time – at Mariachi Plaza at First Street and Boyle Avenue in Boyle Heights. Details at Facebook event.
  • Sunday 3/11 – Given our non-profit status, Streetsblog L.A. does not endorse candidates. If you’re interested in the April 10 Culver City election, and which candidates you might support, one great resource is Bike the Vote. This Sunday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Bike the Vote will host a campaign event for one of the candidates they have endorsed. Details at Facebook event.
  • Next week starting Monday 3/12 – Metro hosts a new round of meetings to get input on the West Santa Ana Branch light rail project, with a focus on possible new routing through downtown Los Angeles. Details at The Source.

    Are they looking to fund the high speed rail via that $1200 conference registration? 😐

  • I am afraid that is what professional conferences tend to cost, because they are held in pricey meeting facilities, pay expenses of the panelists, etc.

    Some events have discounts for attendees from public agencies and non-profits. Or even scholarships for activists.

  • Rail Passenger Association of California and Nevada is having an informal member meeting on Saturday March 10th at 10 a.m. at Phillipes the Original, 1001N. Alameda (a short walk from Union Station). And I am sure members of the public are welcome to attend also. On the second floor, room to the left at the top of the stairs.
