Hello.  

 

My name is _____________ and I am a constituent living in _____________.

 

I am contacting you to express my support for the February 1 letter sent by Los Angeles Community Action Network (LACAN) and Downtown Women’s Action Coalition (D.W.A.C.). 

 

[Brief personal note here about why this is so important to you]

 

It is essential that Mayor Garcetti responds to and takes meaningful action NOW to meet the demands outlined in the letter:

1.   Prioritize immediate housing solutions for unhoused women, specifically prioritizing Black women;

2.   Convert all vacant city-owned property into housing that can be used for women and families;

3.   Ensure state, local and federal resources, including COVID-19 CARES Act dollars are earmarked to emergency and healthcare services for women;

4.   Provide fully maintained water stations, sanitation units and feminine hygiene products in Skid Row immediately;

5.   End LAPD homeless outreach and engagement strategies

People are dying every single day that there is no action taken.  DO SOMETHING!!!

 

Best,

 

[Your Name]
