MixLA: 1984 to 2028 with Renata Simril

renata_teal.jpg

The Olympics are coming to Los Angeles, but 2028 is a long way away. Can Los Angeles rise to meet the incredible challenges that face us before the world comes to visit? Will we be able to game the Olympics into another successful civic venture? Or will we be saddled with Olympian ruins and debt like Rio and Athens?   

Renata Simril is the President and CEO of the LA84 Foundation an organization that sprouted from the success of the 1984 Olympic Games that has supported thousands of Southern California youth sports organizations through grant making, training coaches, commissioning research, convening conferences and acting as a national thought leader on important youth sports issues. She is also a third generation Angeleno who has worked with the LA Times, The Dodgers foundation, and even served  as Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Housing in the Hahn Administration. Most recently, however, she was a key member of the 2028 Olympic Bid Committee and had a direct hand in the complex process of turning Los Angeles’ Olympic dream into a reality.

Future of Cities L.A. is a civic initiative and project of Community Partners that aims to reinvigorate the involvement of civic leaders in creating a vibrant, cutting edge future for Los Angeles.  As part of of our mission, FOCLA founder Donna Bojarsky, sat down with Ms. Simril to discuss the bid, the future of Los Angeles, homelessness, gentrification, and of course, the Olympic Games.

LA Times' Nick Goldberg talks Times, New York, LA, and Civic Leadership in the Age of Trump

Our founder, Donna Bojarsky, sat down with Nick Goldberg of the LA Times, to discuss the incredibly popular and controversial editorial series “Our Dishonest President”, the role of a large city newspaper in shaping civic leadership, and why the East Coast may finally be warming up to California leadership in the age of Trump. 

Nick_Goldberg_1.png

What was the trigger for the series and why? How did it evolve?

Well, like every other newspaper editorial page in the country we’ve been writing about Trump non-stop. We started writing about him at the beginning of the campaign and we wrote a very negative piece about him early on saying he was unfit to be President and we were scathing about him when we endorsed Hillary.  

After the election, we were still writing day in and day out about him, but we were writing mostly one-offs, in which we would respond to an executive order, or to a cabinet appointment or to a particular tweet. At some point we just said, we have to pull this together, we have to write a big coherent overview, connecting the dots, about what we think about this bizarre new president, because people out there seem to want to hear it. And they did.

 

Did you want the whole to be bigger than the sum of the parts?

Yes, exactly. Well, you know, we wanted to pull it together and sort of explain to ourselves and to our readers, what it was we were seeing in Trump, and why it was that we were so upset and disturbed and frightened by this guy. What was it about him that was different from other Republican presidents, and from other people with whom we disagreed on policy issues.

Change and Velocity: The History and Future of Los Angeles

FOC_Image_for_Blog_June_2_600x.jpg 

At the launch of Future of Cites on June 2nd, 2015, Bill Deverell, Chair of the History Department at USC and profound expert on the history of our City, gave a truly memorable talk. We are proud to share it with you here:

When I teach the history of Los Angeles, several key themes scaffold the course, whether I’m speaking to undergraduates, doctoral students, or the high schoolers involved with the Los Angeles Service Academy, a program fostering leadership among 16 year olds from all over the basin.

We hang LA history on imperial expansion, of Spain and the United States.  We find LA within expressions of Manifest Destiny and its violence.  We encounter remarkable diversity at the outset.  We railroad LA. We watch a harbor dug out of almost nothing, we see bold metropolitan ambition come to fruition. We watch the Mexican Revolution send Latino labor northward at precisely the moment that industrial Los Angeles so desires a laboring underclass.  We undergird the American economy, and the world’s imagination, with LA films, the LA film industry, and LA oil.  We track escapees from the Jim Crow South trying, with greater and lesser degrees of success, to outrun racism by racing west.
