The Neighborhood Integrity Initiative starts the process of fixing L.A.’s broken and unfair planning system, which is controlled by deep-pocketed developers and powerful politicians to serve their own self-interests.

Among a long list of problems, this rigged system pushes forward luxury mega-projects that cause traffic gridlock, the destruction of neighborhood character and the displacement of longtime residents, including senior citizens on fixed budgets. The Coalition to Preserve L.A. and its supporters are saying no more.

Crossroads of the World


The Coalition to Preserve L.A. is underwritten, in large part, by AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a $1.3 billion non-profit whose legions of doctors and nurses are caring for more than 590,000 HIV/AIDS patients in 35 countries. 
AHF also takes on social justice and fairness issues unrelated to AIDS. In the U.S., AHF is sponsoring ballot measures that aim to remove the Confederate flag from the Mississippi state flag and to lower high pharmacy costs in California and Ohio.
No funds granted for the care of AIDS patients are spent on the organization's ballot campaigns. AHF raises its own advocacy funds to tackle social justice and fairness issues, which are in harmony with its mission. That mission is "cutting-edge medicine and advocacy regardless of ability to pay."
Now, AHF has set its sights on real estate developer control of fundamental processes at L.A. City Hall that, in fact, belong to the people. That unfair developer control has destroyed neighborhood character, created outrageous traffic congestion, wiped out thousands of net units of affordable housing and directly fed into L.A.'s spike in homelessness.
