Discussion & Dessert-Zev Yaroslavsky: LA at a Crossroads


What will LA look like in the future?

We are honored to have Zev Yaroslavsky as our Discussion & Dessert speaker. His name is well known in Los Angeles as someone who was a dominant force in virtually every municipal initiative of note since he joined the LA City Council.  Mr. Yaroslavsky was first elected to office in 1975, stunning the political establishment by winning the LA City Council's coveted 5th District seat at the age of 26. In 1994 he was elected to the five member LA County Board of Supervisors, representing the western part of the county and a constituency of two million people. During his public service career, among many of his accomplishments, he was the county's leader in the cultural arts. He is also credited with playing a leading role in the sweeping reforms of the LA County Sheriff's Department.

He is now the Director of the Los Angeles Initiative at the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs and the Department of History, focusing on the intersection of policy, politics, and history in the Los Angeles region.

For more information, contact D & D Coordinator Dorothy Salkin at (310) 475-4696 or

Since we will be together virtually, Dorothy is sharing one of her favorite recipes from her cooking classes. Dorothy invites you to prepare it prior to the evening and enjoy it during Discussion & Dessert.
