More than 500 protest for renter protection, affordable housing

first_imgIn addition, the group presented a list of 100 buildings in which tenants are considered at risk for eviction by unscrupulous landlords, condo conversions or demolitions. “We know they’re going to have to do a little thinking. We’re going to give them a week and that’s it,” Hurd said. But the groups’ protest was met with lukewarm response from city leaders, who have been trying to balance the needs of both tenants and landlords. “There are ways to get your point across. I don’t know how well their point was received,” said Councilman Herb Wesson, who heads the Council’s Housing and Economic Development Committee. “A citywide housing policy is something that has to be thought out in a methodical way.” A spokesman for Villaraigosa said Helmi Hisserich, the deputy mayor for housing, will meet with affordable-housing advocates to discuss their demands. Angry tenants and homeless residents filled the City Council chambers Wednesday, pounding the lectern and calling for more renter protections and affordable housing in Los Angeles. More than 500 people protested inside and outside City Hall and presented a list of demands including a moratorium on condo conversions, a citywide housing policy and a requirement that developers include affordable units in their projects. “Something has to be done. We’re talking about hundreds of units where people are being evicted all the time. Where are these people going to go?” said Alvivon Hurd, a downtown resident who belongs to ACORN, a low-income housing advocacy group. She and others demanded that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the City Council adopt stronger policies to build and protect affordable housing. “In many ways, we’re already on the same page,” spokesman Gil Duran said. “Everybody wants to see more affordable housing and see it built much more rapidly.” kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
