This weekend is the annual Lotus Festival at Echo Park Lake — and around 30-40 of our unhoused neighbors have already been evicted from the park to make way for the very different tents filling up the area.
Join us on Saturday to canvass the festival with flyers to draw attention to these cruel evictions. At the same time, our comrades in NOlympics LA will be canvassing for Homes Not Hotels, talking to residents about how legislative loopholes and aggressive commercial development are displacing tenants in the district represented by Mitch O'Farrell (who will likely be in attendance).
Help us double up and demand justice for housed and unhoused tenants alike! We'll be meeting at the corner of Logan & Park at noon before splitting up across the park.
