24 Mar Healthy LA Petition
We signed a petition on Action Network telling Los Angeles City Council to Urge LA City Council to Protect Residents During the Pandemic.
As COVID-19 triggers a national state of emergency, and a statewide call to stay home and stay sheltered, many Angelenos are forced to put their health on the line simply to keep a roof over their heads. Our city councilmembers have shown great leadership in their response to this crisis so far. In this precarious time, it’s crucial that their next actions be bold, decisive, and for the good of our most vulnerable friends and neighbors. We know that the economic and public health impacts of COVID-19 will be devastating for our most vulnerable communities.
In Los Angeles, more than 60 percent of renters already spend almost a third of their household income on rent each month — and 57,000 people are without housing altogether. With the previously unthinkable restrictions that have now been placed on working Angelenos, countless more will soon be unable to stay in their homes or put food on the table.
