I stay very near the place a lot of this video is filmed. German in Venice persistently places out practical content material sharing the unhappy scenario of Los Angeles’ unhoused. The Invisible People Project can also be wonderful.
Immediately German shares a brand new initiative to develop Tiny Dwelling villages. We shared this story about the model village a number of weeks again. This apparently is a part of a larger proposal by CD-11 Councilperson Mike Bonin to shortly set up new protected tenting, protected parking and Tiny Dwelling websites to attempt to home the homeless on LA’s Westside.
I awakened this morning and skim this story about Silicon Valley’s homeless situation. Yesterday mates instructed me that Oakland seems quite a bit like Los Angeles.
Whereas we’re pushing folks round, like Echo Park or the Rose/Penmar encampment, LA has not appeared to slay any dragons. There are extra folks ready to maneuver into areas as quickly as restore or cleansing work ends. Fencing a park to maintain folks out will not work long-term. Discovering a job when clear, fed, and safely housed continues to be very tough. Compound all the opposite challenges shoveled on people who’re already in a nasty scenario? That is financial injustice that got here dwelling to roost, not an dependancy or psychological well being downside as some would possibly wish to assume.
Protected in a single day parking, Tiny Properties, shopping for condo buildings and lodges, do all of it! As soon as we now have sufficient housing for everybody who needs it, folks can combat over which is finest.
