Stonewall Democratic Club Urges LA City Council to Adopt Package of Tenant & Worker Protections
The Council will hold an emergency meeting on Friday, March 27th, 2020 at 11:00am and will be open for public comment via email and telephone
The Stonewall Democratic Club strongly endorses the package of tenant and worker protections under consideration by the Los Angeles City Council at its emergency meeting on Friday, March 27, 2020. We also encourage and urge our partners in the California state legislature to resume meeting in the immediate future and to augment these local measures with statewide relief. Millions of Californians will go to sleep tonight with fear and uncertainty, and we need all jurisdictions across the state working in tandem with statewide leadership to bring immediate protections to all Californians, especially those who are already our most vulnerable.
The Coronavirus pandemic has presented everyday Americans with unprecedented challenges and in many ways exposed the vulnerabilities in our economy and health systems. Swift action is needed to address these vulnerabilities and to ensure the economic safety and health of our cities and citizens.
The emergency meeting will be open to members of the public, who may comment on the proposals by phoning in or sending an email. We are calling on Stonewall members to voice support for, and for the City Council to act swiftly to provide protections to, renters and workers in the Los Angeles area.
