Join NOlympics LA for our second HOMES NOT HOTELS canvass from 1-3 pm, followed by an abbreviated NOlympics meeting from 3-4 pm to plan out our community meeting in August. All takes place in De Longpre Park in Hollywood (1350 N Cherokee Ave 90028).
Hollywood is a major tourist zone for the LA 2028 Olympics and ground zero of rampant hotel speculation and displacement. Right now, an apartment owner wants to destroy 40 rent-controlled units to build a hotel on Whitley and Hollywood; due to legislative loopholes and aggressive commercial development, it's estimated that 12,500 residents have been displaced from Hollywood by rising rents.
Throughout the Summer, we'll be talking to Hollywood residents about rising rents, the decimation of affordable housing options, and the insane number of hotels being built around the area to build local grassroots power against hotel-driven displacement and the Olympic Games. Join us!
