Back in April, we threw a big, three-day event to celebrate two milestones: The publication of the Los Angeles issue of our quarterly magazine, and the launch of our new local community, GOOD LA. On the first night, our design event Steal This Idea included eight designers presenting solutions to Los Angeles problems as proposed by eight urban leaders. The next day, our Pop-Up Community Center threw open its doors to over one hundred partners and vendors from throughout the city, who held workshops, led tours, and gave presentations on how they're moving L.A. forward. You can follow all our event partners on Twitter here.

Want to be the first to hear about GOOD LA's next event? Sign up for our one-good-L.A.-thing-a-day email and become a member of GOOD LA. You can also follow GOOD LA on Facebook and Twitter.
