Ensuring Physical and Economic Mobility | Effie Turnbull Sanders, Executive Director, South Los Angeles Transit Empowerment Zone (SLATE-Z)
With a belief that a child’s zip code should never determine her/his destiny; but realizing that the community one grows up in impacts that young person’s odds of graduating high school; health outcomes; and lifetime economic opportunities, “Promise Zones” were created by the federal government for the purpose of partnering with local leaders to increase economic activity, improve educational opportunities, and leverage private investment in order to address public health and other priorities identified by the community. Join us in a conversation with Effie Turnbull Sanders, Executive Director of the SLATE-Z promise zone as she discusses their efforts to promote neighborhood revitalization, educational excellence, and economic empowerment in order to realize the promise and potential of South Los Angeles.
