Hundreds of residents and organizations from ACROSS L.A. gathered at City Hall this morning to STOP the Community Care Facilities Ordinance (CCFO), which would unfairly restrict and eliminate shared housing options in LA, increasing homelessness and segregation in our communities.

With chambers at standing room only, the CCFO died in Council today – Council Member Mitch Englander simply did not have the votes to pass this discriminatory ordinance. While this campaign is far from over, the political winds have surely shifted. Englander, once defiant and sure of marginal support for the ordinance, has been reduced to polemic double-talk.

This was in no doubt due to the power of the diverse coalition that united on behalf of fair housing in L.A.! Thanks to all of you who showed up to let your voice be heard!

STOP LAPD SPYING Community Townhall! Saturday, January 19th at 2pm at Chuco’s Justice Center!

The Stop LAPD Spying Coalition invites you to a Community Townhall on Saturday January 19th, 2013 at 2PM at Chuco’s Justice Center. The “War at Home” has been going on for far too long on our collective human rights.

Click HERE to RSVP on the Community Townhall Facebook Event Page.

Everyday new surveillance and spying policies are assaulting our civil liberties, invading our privacy, and wasting public resources. For over a year and a half, the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition has been building diverse grassroots campaign to build public awareness, participation, mobilization and action. The coalition has engaged in broad community outreach, conducted clear analysis and confronted both the perpetrators of state violence like the LAPD and their supporters in the civil rights community who have betrayed our communities by being the mouthpieces of LAPD.

Our vision is the dismantling of government-sanctioned spying and intelligence gathering, in all its multiple forms. Together we build a movement that is intersectional to the core on issues, experiences, demographics and resources.

Start spreading the word, Saturday Jan 19th at 2 PM. Chuco’s Justice Center – 1137 E. Redondo Blvd., Inglewood, CA 90302.

Central City Association, Jan Perry and DTLA 1% threaten Skid Row Residents…with Arrest?

Posted in video with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 14, 2012 by Cangress

Last week, on November 8th, LA CAN members again protested outside the Orpheum Theater during the Central City Association’s second mayor candidate breakfast. This time the CCA was hosting Councilmember Jan Perry – and, this time, CCA and the Downtown LA 1% called in the LAPD to try to shut us down.

After trying to silence the free speech rights of Skid Row residents by stating that we were “disturbing the peace”, we were informed by LAPD that the individuals inside the meeting – business leaders, Central City Association members, etc. – were going to arrest us. Please watch the video above to see just how it went down.
