Picture the Homeless support the L.A. Right to Housing Collective and their efforts to promote and defend human rights. The L.A. City Council must act immediately to strengthen and protect housing rights for all residents of Los Angeles.
We express our outrage over the human rights abuses perpetrated against low-income residents and organizations in the L.A. Right to Housing Collective on May 21.
The human right to housing is the responsibility of our government and elected officials, including the Los Angeles City Council. The defeat of the moratorium on rent increases on May 21 represents a violation of the human right to housing.

City Council’s use of police force and violence against constituents exercising their rights on May 21 will not be tolerated. A public apology and a full investigation of the use of force by the police, at a minimum, are already overdue.
Poor&low-income activists&organizers in NYC stand with our friends in L.A. -- housing is a human right!
