A Generation of LA Leaders: Celebrating 30 Years of the Lewis Center

Mar 5 @ 6:00 pm-9:00 pm

- Free

In 1989, Ralph and Goldy Lewis donated $5 million to establish the Lewis Center for Regional Policy Studies at UCLA. For the last 30 years, the center has tackled the leading social, economic, industrial, housing, environmental, architectural and transportation policies that impact the greater Los Angeles region.

To celebrate the milestone, the former and current directors of the Lewis Center will discuss how LA has changed, how it hasn’t and what they see for the next generation ahead. Each faculty director left their own mark on the center’s research focus areas — from labor to immigration to transportation access and land use.

6 pm – In conversation with directors
7:30 pm – Reception
