Primary Targets:

  • Mayor Eric Garcetti — @MayorOfLA
  • CD13 Mitch O’Farrell — @MitchOFarrell
  • LAHSA Director Heidi Marston — @HeidiMarstonLA

Background

For the same cost as two encampment sweeps, the #ServicesNotSweeps coalition has provided 20 Schrader Enforcement Zone residents with motel rooms for 10 nights. The hotel funds were raised through a combination of crowdfunding and donations from coalition orgs. As the hotel funds run out, we urge that the City of LA permanently house the 20 residents immediately. With nearly 100,000 vacant hotel units and 66,000 unhoused people in LA County, we demand that Mayor Garcetti commandeer vacant hotels to house all Angelenos.

Message

We demand that the City of LA:

  • Immediately halt all CARE+ “comprehensive cleanup” sweeps
  • End Special Enforcement and Cleaning Zones (SECZ)
  • Provide hotel rooms, motel rooms, and permanent housing to all unhoused Angelenos
  • Establish an Unhoused Residents Oversight Committee to oversee decisions made by city governance with respect to all matters related to homelessness
  • Remove law enforcement from outreach
