Urban Planners, geek out! Michelle Rivera, of UCLA’s Masters in Urban and Regional Planning program, connects with us to talk about her journey towards this esteemed graduate program. Shout outs and discussion items include Michelle and I’s coming out of UC Davis (go Aggies!), the importance of nonprofit work for learning the how-tos of community organizing, Michelle’s time with Chancee Martorell of the Thai Community Development Center in East Hollywood, her work with L.A. City Hall’s recent decision to codify the Al Fresco program, and of course, her fundraising efforts to get to Paris, France this fall, where she’ll continue her studies for three months at Sciences Po University. Please find her fundraiser for this HERE, and follow her journey via Instagram at @mujer.de.epazote.
Also, remember to submit your voicemail to the new J.T. Weather Report!
Here are the four easy steps to take when calling into the hotline:
I. Choose an interesting nickname for yourself to keep your anonymity.
II. Tell me which side of The City (or County) you’re calling from.
III. Tell me how you’re liking the weather, or if you’ve seen anything interesting through it like a downed power line, fallen tree, a pack of opossums, etc.
IV. Keep it under a minute! This helps us tune in to more reports rather than less.
***And if you’d like to keep your number anonymous as well, did you know that pressing *67 before you dial a number keeps your number blocked? That’s right!
Submit your voicemail to the J.T. Weather Report at (213) 458-5042.
