According to The Los Angeles Times, as of June 4th, 2019, homelessness in the City of Los Angeles has soared to 36,000 people, a 16% increase. County-wide, homelessness has increased by 12% totaling 58,936 people (Source: Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority). These alarming numbers represent 3,000 homeless veterans (The Los Angeles Times). In 2011, the homeless population was 39,411 (LAHSA), there is an increase of 19,522 homeless people in Los Angeles County to date.
According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, every day of 2018, 133 homeless people moved into permanent housing, but another 150 people became homeless. The L.A. Times cites, one of the largest increases are people 18 to 24 years old.
In a recent statement, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti called the crisis “heartbreaking.” What is heartbreaking is the second largest City in the nation has a Mayor who remains behind the scenes, instead of making an aggressive effort to help the very citizens he took an oath not to harm.
This petition seeks the public’s help to remove this ineffective public servant from office! Please sign this petition and let the homeless know they are being seen and heard, and that the people of the City of Los Angeles, will no longer tolerate this type of inaction on a crisis endangering all of the public health.
