DEMAND IMMEDIATE ACTION
The number of unsheltered homeless men, women and children living in the streets of the City of Los Angeles has reached a humanitarian crisis level.
Between 2016 and 2017, the number of Los Angeles residents who have fallen into homelessness has increased by 20 percent to a reported 34,189 individuals. To continue to look the other way and to ignore the City’s homelessness crisis is neither morally acceptable, nor financially sound, nor sustainable on the road towards ensuring the long-term success of our city.
The City must act now to protect the well-being, health, safety, and accessibility of all Angelenos, both housed and unsheltered alike.
Furthermore, to address this problem, we personally pledge to engage our local community to generate suggestions and buy-in while offering our time, resources, and dedication as volunteers to make these ideas actionable. As citizens, we ask that city officials explore avenues for greater transparency and communication so that we can work efficiently together, towards this shared goal.
SHARE this with your friends, family, coworkers, colleagues, students, employees, congregation, and community. Our Mayor and City Council must know who much we all agree.
REPORT ON ENCAMPMENTS
The current proliferation of homeless encampments is causing a number of challenges including increased health and safety risks, accessibility challenges and reduced quality of life for both homeless residents and the general public. Read the report written by City Controller Ron Galperin.
