On December 10, 2009 organizations spanning L.A. converged on city hall to deliver one message, 'housing is a human right'. Nearly 300 members of LA CAN, Union de Vecinos, Comunidad Presente, Ezperanza Housing, CES, KIWA, SAJE, and Coalition LA displayed a vivid picture of the multi-cultural social justice movement underway in our city. Standing beneath the Sister City sign, a sign erected to show that Los Angeles is a global destination, residents passionately vowed to fight for human rights at home and abroad. They also described housing conditions which indeed violate the human right to housing.
Get up, stand up...stand up for your rights.
Get up, stand up...don't give up the fight.
