How Can LA Leaders Come Together To Address Homelessness?

In Los Angeles, 45 percent more people were experiencing homelessness in 2020 than in 2016. Although the city has invested in housing solutions for people experiencing homelessness, the situation continues to be dire, with three-quarters of unhoused people living unsheltered. In September, a strict new anticamping ordinance will go into effect and will restrict people from sleeping, laying, or placing their personal property in public areas across the city. Opponents say the law will effectively criminalize homelessness and argue the only way to address these issues is by building more affordable housing and expanding services that provide a path to stable housing.
