Everyone In organizer Enrique Velasquez knows getting his neighbors in the San Fernando Valley to speak out is crucial to ending homelessness. “Each person can become an advocate in their neighborhood, at their church, school, at their city block, and with friends,” he says. “We need anybody with a good heart in this fight.”
Like many people in Los Angeles, Enrique has had to worry about losing his home—and he has known people who have lost theirs. “Housing is a human right,” he says. And when people are denied their right to a home, it affects all of us.
We all need to speak out until we bring everyone in.
