Free Community Forum: May 14th

For heritage organizations, developing partnerships with non-heritage groups for neighborhood revitalization can provide relevance for history and new opportunities to reach an expanded or non-traditional audience.

So, how does a heritage organization connect with neighborhood renewal projects? There's one way to learn coming up at USC on May 14th from 8am to 2:30pm...

Next week, the USC Davidson Conference Center will play host to the 7th Annual LANI Community Forum. Presented free of charge by the Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative, the Community Forum presents varied workshops, breakfast, and lunch. Details & the free registration are at their website.

Formed as a 501c3 in 1994, "The mission of Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative (LANI) is to stimulate community-driven neighborhood revitalization. LANI facilitates stakeholder participation and decision-making, and promotes public/private partnerships that result in catalytic community improvement projects."

LANI works to improve neighborhoods through Community Consensus Building, Transportation and Pedestrian Corridor Improvements, Business District Revitalization, Urban Greening Development, and Support of Community Organizations.
