We’ve opened up the registration for “Economic Opportunity in California: The Labor and Employment Impact of Prop. 209,” a symposium on Friday, October 26, 2007, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. (reception to follow) at the UCLA Faculty Center. The symposium will examine and discuss the 10-year impact of Proposition 209 on public employment, contracting and the public sphere.
Attendance is free, but pre-registration is required. Lunch will be provided.
We have held a block of rooms at a discounted rate of $169/night at Hotel Angeleno in Westwood. The hotel provides a shuttle to the UCLA campus every 30 minutes. You can reserve the rooms online or call the reservation line at (310) 476-6411 and ask for the “Impact 209” group discount. You must book before October 3, 2007, to qualify for the rate.
We also recommend Tiverton House, one of the UCLA on-campus guest houses. It is walking distance from the UCLA Faculty Center. Rooms start at $120/night with parking included. Impact 209 does not have a block of rooms reserved there, but participants can call the reservation desk directly at (310) 794-0151.
UCLA also has a list of nearby hotels at www.cho.ucla.edu/housing/hotels.htm.
