A CRISIS IN OUR COMMUNITY

A CRISIS IN OUR COMMUNITY

Subjecting the homeless to increased violence, squalor, and disease is not compassionate; it's cruel.

HOMELESSNESS IN L.A.

Homelessness in Los Angeles is a tragic and deteriorating crisis.  The City, County, and State are expending record amounts to address homelessness but progress is incremental at best. City leaders face the challenges of out-of-date state laws, legal settlements and decisions that limit their options (some of their own making), and neighborhoods that are skeptical about how this crisis is impacting their well-being. These obstacles cannot be excused when so many lives – and the future of the City – are at stake. The City and County must act with urgency and imagination. Let’s do what it takes to save lives now.  

WHO IS THE LA ALLIANCE FOR HUMAN RIGHTS?

The LA Alliance for Human Rights is a broad-based coalition of stakeholders who understand that our homeless crisis requires urgent and dramatic action. The Alliance includes non-profits, service providers, small business owners, residents, and community leaders who are saddened by the suffering on our streets and fed up with excuses about the status quo.

WHAT CAN BE DONE?

The Alliance has filed a lawsuit asserting violations of state and federal law in order to require our City leaders to respond to our homelessness crisis in an effective and expeditious manner. The Alliance is not focused on fighting our leaders or winning money damages, but instead seeks to use a consent decree or court order to further require City and County officials to rapidly provide services and shelter to those experiencing homelessness in our community.  The Alliance believes that our courts provide the best method to untie the hands of our policymakers and get all stakeholders to focus on readily achievable solutions.
