DAYS OF RAGE 2017 CALENDAR OF EVENTS
What is Days of Rage?
Los Angeles is in an out of control eviction crisis. In the past year alone, homelessness has risen 23% — 2,000 more are expected to be on the streets by the end of 2017. As thousands face displacement and are forced to relocate to new cities, countless others live in overcrowded homes experiencing neglect and abuse by city officials and landlords. Our nightmare is the result of corrupt property owners, predatory developers, and a city government that wants to sell out our communities for profit. From this landscape, a renters rights movement has formed. We stand against the racist and classist forced removal of our communities and we are here to stay! From October 19th – 29th, renters from across the city will come together for eleven days to tell the city we’ve had ENOUGH! NO MORE EVICTIONS! HOUSING RIGHTS FOR ALL!
In the coming weeks, each Los Angeles Tenants Union local and our allies will conduct a “Day of Rage” action to draw attention to the different aspects of neglect, abuse, and injustice wrought by landlords, developers, and officials in Los Angeles and beyond. If you believe housing is a human right, join us for the DAYS OF RAGE!
