Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa spoke at a press conference today at the corner of 6th and Gladys right across from our kitchen. Five Catholic Workers attended with signs to demand that that mayor house the homeless instead of sending them to jail. We were successful in drowning out the mayor’s speech with our demands, however the story is far from over.
The area of Skid Row is only 3/4 of a square mile and has a population of 12,000. In the last year there have been over 9,000 arrests, of which only 1.5% have been for violent crimes, with 1 person arrested for gun possession and one gang member. The city of LA has spent $10 Million to add 50 extra police officers to the neighborhood while only spending $100,000 on housing the homeless. This is not right!!!
We need to demand change. Please take some time out of your busy schedules and contact the mayor to let him know how you feel about this issue. You can email Mayor Villaraigosa at email@example.com or snail mail him at:
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa
200 North Spring St.
Los Angeles, CA 90012
The phone number for City Hall is (213) 978-0600
To read more on this issue, check out the study on the “Safer Cities” Initiative by UCLA Law Professor Gary Blasi and watch the Los Angeles Community Action Network’s Youtube Videos.
Also watch and read about the protest at latimes.com and California Catholic Daily.
