City Council approves bridge housing across L.A.
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.
