Taking place November 4th... The City of Los Angeles believes that today's youth are our biggest allies in our fight against climate change and global warming. The Environmental Youth Conference engages young Angelenos to play a critical role in not only participating in our greening initiatives, but helping us educate others as well.

Elizabeth Pratt, heart transplant survivor and Author of "Dancing With Angels"
Pratt's true story and transplant odyssey "Dancing With Angels" has received the prestigious support and valuable words of encouragement from such dignitaries and organizations as President Bill Clinton, California First Lady Maria Shriver, Dr. Jon Kobashigawa, Medical Director of the UCLA Heart Transplant Program and Dr. Timothy Gardner, President of the American Heart Association. Last year, Pratt created her non-profit foundation "My Angel of Life" for the purpose of educating individuals and families who have experienced a catastrophic illness or transplantation. "It's a place to go when you have no where else to turn," notes Elizabeth. Dancing with Angels is available in paperback.
