During the pandemic, Los Angeles City and County officials have allowed a humanitarian crisis to overtake iconic Venice Beach. Help us stop the growing catastrophe of hundreds of homeless encampments concentrated along the beach and its world-renowned boardwalk. 

We are community members with a 24/7 view of the crime and suffering on our beach. The most susceptible people are unhoused, living in tents and makeshift structures. They are not getting the care and services they need.

Neglect is posing as a civil right while LA’s most vibrant, welcoming, and accessible beach park devolves into a zone of lawlessness and inhumanity. Homicides, robberies, rapes, assaults, fires, and drug ODs are skyrocketing. THIS MUST STOP NOW.

Please join us in sending an urgent message to Los Angeles City and County officials that camping on Venice Beach and boardwalk must stop immediately to make the park safe for everyone.

Our public beaches and recreational parks are not set up to provide the necessary care for unhoused individuals. As the pandemic ends, we want to welcome the world back to a safe and lawful Venice Beach. Prioritize safety and housing over government inaction! Please join with Friends of Venice Boardwalk and Team Venice by signing your name today! 

Thank you for your support!
