On Tuesday, the Los Angeles City Council voted to move forward with bridge housing in Venice, Hollywood, South L.A., and Westlake. For those who don’t know, bridge housing provides a safe place for people to stay and access services while they locate long term supportive and affordable housing.
It’s a critical part of the plan to end homelessness and we applaud Councilmembers Mike Bonin, Marqueece Harris-Dawson, Mitch O’Farrell, and Gil Cedillo for backing real solutions like these in their districts.
Also, a massive thanks to the Everyone In members and the #SheDoes crew who filled City Council chambers and stuck with the remarkably long meeting. It was a standing-room-only crowd that brought home a big win for our movement!
We know that when we show up, we win. And so do the tens of thousands of unsheltered Angelenos who don’t have a safe and stable place to stay.
Join the Everyone In team to get alerts about upcoming actions and sign up for a training. Organizing works and we will continue to speak out until we bring everyone in.
