Homelessness in Los Angeles is a tragic and deteriorating crisis. Thousands live on our streets in medieval conditions while the City and County has failed to adequately and responsibly engage the crisis. The L.A. Alliance, a grass-roots coalition of Los Angeles residents, filed a Federal lawsuit to secure the right of the homeless to shelter/treatment and a return to clean and safe sidewalks.
As a result of the filing, LA City and County have agreed to provide shelter and services for 6500 homeless. While a significant start, the Alliance will not stop until we have a comprehensive agreement with the City and County to house tens of thousands more. The Alliance seeks to use a consent decree or court order to empower City and County officials to rapidly provide sanctuary and humane enforcement of “quality of life” laws. Our goal is to raise funds for outreach and to support the next phase of the legal process. Please help us.
All money raised will be used to fund litigation and related activities. Anything raised beyond what is required will be donated to a homeless service provider chosen by the Alliance.
