Declare L.A. a Sanctuary City & Open Vacant City Property to Homeless Encampments!

The Freedom Socialist Party has initiated a petition calling on Mayor Garcetti and the Los Angeles City Council to:

  • Formally declare Los Angeles a Sanctuary City;
  • Designate all city buildings to be safe places where Homeland Security and ICE cannot apprehend or harass immigrants;
  • Officially declare a homelessness state of emergency; and
  • Open vacant city buildings and properties for homeless shelters and encampments and provide rest rooms, garbage pick-up, and other survival services at each location. 

During this crisis it is important to go on the offensive and demand what people need, in addition to protesting the attacks coming down on our communities from President Trump and his right-wing supporters. 

Sufficient resources exist to provide decent housing for all, but, instead, the billionaires and mega corporations that control those resources invest their profits in making more profits. 

Immigrants come to the United States because global capitalism imposes devastating poverty in their homelands.  They make tremendous contributions to our communities and our economy.  We must act now to prevent the brutal treatment that is being unleashed against them.

Please share with others!


This petition will be delivered to:
  • Los Angeles City Council Members
  • Los Angeles Mayor
    Eric Garcetti
