There have been many lines drawn throughout history. Red lines. Jim Crow lines. Lines on women’s rights. Immigration lines.
And of course, race lines.
Yep! The US is comfortable drawing lines of division… But so is LA!
In Los Angeles, the City continues to hold the line, leading with criminalization to address houselessness. 6 homeless people die each day in Los Angeles, yet the city firmly holds the line.
Leading with banishment instead of services, displacement instead of housing, handcuffs instead of housekeys.
When they say they continue to hold the line on criminalization, I never thought that I’d see this!
Kevin de Leon has crossed the line. Again.
