All across the Southland, activated citizens like you are demanding fair and compassionate solutions to our homelessness crisis. By speaking out and showing up, we’re already changing the lives of our unhoused neighbors. In just the last 6 months, here’s what we’ve accomplished together:
- In February, the L.A. City Council pledged to build 222 units of supportive housing in all districts of L.A. before July of 2020 for a total of 3,330 units. So far we’re at 2,122.
- In April, new laws in L.A. made it easier to build more supportive housing and convert old motels into housing.
- From Arcadia to Pasadena and Malibu, residents across our region are fighting for comprehensive, local solutions to homelessness that are tailored to the needs of specific communities. Just days ago, Baldwin Park and South Pasadena ratified their own plans to end homelessness.
And this is just the beginning. By devoting time and energy, we’re making sure the plan to end homelessness in L.A. is implemented fully and effectively. And we’re telling our politicians and NIMBY neighbors that ending homelessness is all of our responsibility.
So stand up to ignorance and intolerance. Be brave. And get your friends to join us.
