Event description

Description

Do you believe everyone, regardless of their zip code, deserves access to a clean, safe park?

We do. We envision a world-class park system for our region. Help us make it a reality.


Registration is now open for the 2017 Park Equity Summit! This annual event will explore a wealth of topics and help develop community-centered solutions to ensure that everyone has clean, safe parks in their neighborhoods.

Keynote Speaker

We're thrilled to announce our keynote speaker Jayne Miller, Superintendent of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board. Under Superintendent Miller’s leadership, Minneapolis has implemented groundbreaking park equity initiatives including the 20-Year Neighborhood Park Plan, which prioritizes investments in neighborhood parks according to racial and economic equity metrics. We're honored to have Jayne Miller share with us Minneapolis’ trailblazing experience developing and implementing park equity policies!

In addition to our keynote, panel and workshop topics include:
  • Why park equity matters
  • What local park funding exists and how government budgets can support park equity
  • How parks can support public safety and efforts to prevent displacement
  • How city-owned vacant lots can be maximized for public benefit
  • Presentation of a draft Park Equity Policy Platform for Los Angeles – we need your input!
The event will include lunch and end with a networking reception. Translation services will be provided.
