The Tripping Point Summit – The Valley Edition

Tripping-Point

9:30AM – 2PM (breakfast served at 9AM)
Panorama High School – 8015 Van Nuys Blvd, Panorama City, CA 91402

For over 40 years, our sidewalks, crosswalks, and bus stops have gone mostly unimproved in the City of Los Angeles. The Tripping Point goal is to highlight the importance of these public amenities on our quality of life. Come join the movement to support an even better Los Angeles with safe, accessible, and dignified travel options for all.

This past June we hosted a free Advocacy Summit to organize residents and build a constituency that can effectively advocate for fixing sidewalks, crosswalks, bus stops, and planting more trees in our communities. We hosted over 150 residents from across the City in Boyle Heights (recap here), and this month we’re taking this organizing effort to the Valley in Panorama City on Saturday October 21.

Food, childcare, and English/Spanish translation will be provided all at no cost. Please register so we know how many people to expect. And help us spread the word to your neighbors, friends, and family. No experience necessary – come learn with us! Register today! 

Come join your neighbors, elected officials, and department staff and learn how to improve your neighborhood!

Dr. Nordella’s Aliso Canyon Disaster Health Study Town Hall Meeting – Saturday, October 14, 2017

Aliso Canyon Health Study Town Hall flyer 2017.10.14

Many North Valley community members were gravely impacted by the Aliso Canyon gas facility disaster of 2015, and many continue to experience unexplained health ailments.  After many failed promises of a meaningful health impact study, Dr. Jeffrey Nordella, a local medical doctor, stepped up to the plate and decided to undertake the study by himself.  He set up an arrangement with an out-of-state laboratory, and many community members submitted hair and urine samples for toxins analysis, which they had to pay for themselves.  Dr. Nordella has spent countless hours seeing patients and analyzing their health data.  He is finally ready to present to the community the outcome of his study and his interpretation of the results.

With support from non-profit organizations in the community, Dr. Nordella will be presenting the results at a Town Hall meeting to be held at the Woodland Hills Hilton on Saturday, October 14, 2017.  The hotel is located at 6360 Canoga Avenue, Woodland Hills.  The Town Hall is scheduled from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.  Parking at the hotel costs $16, but there is free parking in the vicinity. The Orange Line Canoga Station is two walkable blocks to the north.  Please refer to flyer for further event details.
