OUR DEMANDS ON HOUSING
1. Immediately restore all Federal Government affordable housing program funding to comparable 1978 allocation levels. With an emphasis on HUD’s Public Housing and Public-based Section 8.
2. Enact a moratorium on the demolition, conversion or destruction of ANY publicly funded units until federal law guarantees one for one replacement at existing affordability rates.
3. Ensure adequate funding for operations of public housing to prevent unit loss, high vacancy rates, and substandard living conditions.
OUR DEMANDS ON CIVIL RIGHTS
1. Stop police and business improvement zone programs that enforce “nuisance crimes” or “quality of life crimes.” These programs criminalize and remove homeless, poor, people of color, and disabled
members of our communities.
2. Call for DOJ to respond to LA community request for investigation of discriminatory police enforcement under the Safer Cities Initiative that targets homeless, poor, people of color and disabled community
3. Ensure that the more than 914,000 homeless children in our public schools are able to stay at their “home school” are fully integrated with their housed peers and are provided the support they need to learn and thrive.
4. Stop any and all questions regarding a person’s immigration status when they are requesting healthcare, emergency shelter or services.
