COVID-19 Diaries

En español.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve shared a series focusing on the stories of people across Los Angeles who have been affected by the pandemic.

People like Alejandro, a UCLA student whose education has moved online.

Or Angelica Gonzalez-Harris, who is now dealing with the reality of risking her health as an essential worker since she works at a gas station.

Others like Danny Garcia, a street vendor, are struggling with the economic loss of people staying indoors.

Theo Henderson, the creator of “We, the Unhoused” podcast, is currently experiencing homelessness and lacks a safe place to quarantine.

All of these residents have different stories, but they are all people whose lives and livelihoods are threatened by the high cost of housing in our communities.

And they are not alone.

Millions of renters across Los Angeles are at risk of eviction, a threat echoed in a recent Luskin study from UCLA. 

That’s why we created a petition demanding rent and mortgage forgiveness, which to date has been signed by over 7,000 advocates.
