The City of Culver City is hosting an exciting Speaker Series on critical issues affecting Culver City, the region, and beyond. The City’s General Plan Update will set a vision, goals, and policies around these topics. Attending the series of events offers an opportunity to learn about, reflect on, and discuss these issues leading up to, and during, the update. Topics include mobility, urban design, social equity, housing affordability, emergency preparedness, dynamic parking pricing, healthy communities, and much more to come. The entire community is invited to join in the discussion!

Join us for a Speaker Series event at the Culver City Arts District Art Walk & Roll Festival. The City will welcome mobility design expert Dan Sturges for a presentation on 'New Mobility.' Sturges is at the forefront of developing innovative urban mobility solutions. He will be sharing his ideas on designing a multimobility future. Following the presentation, Culver City will host a special one-time screening of the Dutch documentary film, Why We Cycle. The film explores the hidden effects of cycling on people and communities. It will be presented in Dutch with English subtitles. View the film trailer.
The presentation by Dan Sturges will be from 11 AM to 12:30 PM and the screening of Why We Cycle will begin at 1:30 PM. Light refreshments will be served.
Please join us on Thursday, November 21, to hear Richard Rothstein discuss how local, state, and federal policies racially segregated cities across the nation. He’ll talk about the challenges and opportunities ahead to fix the ongoing impacts of those policies, some of which are still in place. John Kent will discuss Culver City’s founding as a whites-only town and offer insight into how national racial policies were applied and implemented here. Kelly Lytle Hernández will moderate a Q&A following the presentations. Richard Rothstein will be available to sign copies of his book, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America, before the presentations begin.
