A Bright Spot in L.A. Housing

If you support more housing and lower rents in Los Angeles, it’s hard not to be discouraged sometimes. Fierce opposition from NIMBYs and their favorite politicians in City Hall and Sacramento continues to stifle even incremental change. But amid these obstacles, there’s a bright spot in L.A. housing policy, and it’s three letters long: T-O-C. […]

The goal is simple: deliver on the promise that was made when 1.5 million voters who passed Measure H and Proposition HHH in 2016 and 2017 and ensure that each dollar is spent wisely and goes to the goal of providing services and creating supportive housing throughout Los Angeles.

Join Abundant Housing LA as we host this Supportive Housing Advocacy Training presented by Everyone In. We'll learn effective messaging and find opportunities for advocacy in support of housing for the unhoused.

Protest NIMBYism!

Sep 19 Thu 1:00 pm - Sep 19 Thu 2:30 pm

Department 82 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 Map

Come help us protest Fix the City - an ultra NIMBY organization that sues against housing and density.

Fix the City is suing the City of LA over the Expo TNP (which increases housing zoned capacity along the Expo) and over TOC, which is a policy promoting more housing density and subsidized affordable housing.

We need to show up and tell these NIMBYs that enough is enough. We have a housing crisis, an affordability crisis, a homelessness crisis, and a climate crisis! Exclusionary tactics like these are no longer acceptable. At a time when we need a huge increase in housing, Fix the City is using baseless lawsuits to make even *less* housing possible.

---This advocacy opportunity is easy for those who live/work near DTLA - just stop by around lunch! It's right at the Civic Center metro stop----
