Over the weekend, on April 30, Coalition to Preserve L.A. once again went into the community to spread the word about the Neighborhood integrity Initiative, which seeks to protect our communities from greedy developers and their politician pals at City Hall. This time, we marched in the Venice Cinco de Mayo Parade Festival, where we heard cheers from onlookers throughout the parade route.
Check out this video:
The parade festival was organized by the Pico Youth & Family Center, and Coalition to Preserve L.A. was one of the major sponsors for the event — unlike many developers and politicians, we believe in truly engaging and working with the community.
After all, we’re a community-based movement that wants to help all Angelenos take back their city from deep-pocketed developers who manipulate L.A.’s rigged and broken development-approval system for their own self-interests — and we have to deal with such fall-out as gridlocked streets, gigantic skyscrapers with luxury housing and gentrification.
We’re saying no more, and we’re hitting the streets wherever we can to get that message out there. So invite us to one of your events or attend one of ours. Together, we can create the change that L.A. needs!
