By giving people the resources and support that they need to build stronger networks, we create a vast support system that confronts the undue pressure put upon our vulnerable.
Los Angeles has a new voice on the left. KNOCK is a journalism and commentary project by Ground Game LA, a community organization that fosters civic empowerment and political engagement.
This past March, nearly 70% of LA County residents approved funding for homelessness services by voting in favor of Measure H this spring.
LA City Council to follow the wishes of LA voters in ensuring Measure H funding is used for the homeless services we were told it would be. We have been following the progress of the measure since it's approval, and it looks like the LAPD is making moves to get a large portion of the money for themselves. Policing is not only a non-solution to homelessness, but nowhere in the writing of the measure was it even ever mentioned.
Please sign on and tell city council you want them to respect your vote and follow through on these aims.
