- Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles, CA
The time has come again for us to fight for our Angelenos experiencing homelessness. This March 7th, at the local County Elections, there is a very important Measure up for approval. If successfully passed, Measure H would generate about $350 million annually to be used for homelessness prevention and housing. It would also provide services for thousands of units of homeless housing that will be financed by Proposition HHH, the $1.2-billion bond measure, we the people of Los Angeles championed in November of 2016.
We, Monday Night Mission and LA on Cloud9 are asking you to March with us on Saturday the 25th of February 2017, to ask our fellow brothers and sisters of our city to champion Measure H, so we can finally provide the help our homeless Angelenos need!
We need you! We need 2/3’s majority to pass Measure H
Join us at 4.00pm in front of the Hollywood and Vine subway station at 6250 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90028 to March on Hollywood Blvd until we reach Hollywood and Highland.
Following is a full list of services which would be funded by Measure H:
Mental health, substance abuse treatment, health care, education, job training, rental subsidies, emergency and affordable housing, transportation, outreach, prevention, and supportive services for homeless children, families, foster youth, veterans, battered women, seniors, disabled individuals, and other homeless adults.
For more info please see the offical website for Measure h at: http://voteyesonh.com/
We encourage all Angelenos and organizations in LA to join us in this Peaceful March.
