Ground Game LA started this petition to Los Angeles City Council and

I. Stop enforcement and harassment of our unhoused community at Echo Park Lake -- amend L.A.M.C 63.44 OR stop enforcement until there is a viable permanent supportive housing plan in place for all residents of the park 

II. Adopt Community Contract between residents of the park, and housed neighbors in CD13

Unhoused residents pledge to:

1. Keep the park clean. We would be happy to help the rangers in maintaining the beauty of this space, we will be drafting a proposed residential volunteer job summary (i.e. trash collection, gardening, sweeping, beautification projects, maintenance, bathroom cleaning etc.) that we would each agree to be a part of to ensure that our residency does not detract from the beauty of the park
2. Be respectful to our neighbors and community
3. We will be compliant with cleanups that are in line with the demands of the Services Not Sweeps coalition.

In return for being able to stay at Echo Park lake until we each have a housing plan in place, we ask that neighbors, law enforcement, park employees and park goers do the following:

1. Not gawk at us and film us as if we were in a freak show
2. Not pollute our living space or the environment of the park
3. Not harass and criminalize us, but accept us as members of the community
4. Not intimidate us with late night police raids
5. No more frequent and unpredictable “clean ups”
