Please share this comment with the public since City Clerk Aisha Thompson refuses to read them during the city council meetings.
City Council: Please stop giving more money to law enforcement agencies who are currently getting over 8 BILLION dollars in LA County to terrorize residents! We need real investments in our community like mental, behavioral, and rehabilitation health sites! We need investments in safe, clean, and affordable housing, both rent and homeownership! We needed these basic needs over 10-20 years ago, we cannot wait any longer to get the housing justice & equity that we are owed.
We will be looking at suing any elected officials that are aiding in any corruption that is causing residents of Inglewood to fall further into poverty. We need all public land focused on affordable housing, we need more open green space and walkable/bike-friendly communities! As we reimagine safety, we need to talk about preventing crimes from happening in the first place! By ending poverty and investing in behavioral health support & paying workers in that field adequate money for the work, we can create safer communities!
Please DO NOT sell any more public land to be used for stadiums and entertainment! All stadiums in SouthLA need to have annual investments that go directly to the community in the form of cash payments and investments into behavioral health support for residents that have CLEAR, visible mental, behavioral, and rehabilitation health needs!
The time for housing, land, and restorative justice is NOW! We will not be waiting for another generation to ask for the basic needs that we are owed! We are not asking anymore but requesting!
