Safer at Home

Social Security Checks coming next week - Be sure maintain social distancing

Message from Community Advocate:

Please be aware that next week is the first of the month when senior citizens receive them social security checks. They will be at greater vulnerability and risk for theft, stress and health. This is when they flock to banks and grocery stores.

Acknowledge these facts and plan.

Ask grocery stores to consider changing seniors shopping time and banking times.

Be mindful and be safe. Reach out to Council District 10 and Mayor's office.

Urge LA City Council to Protect Residents During the Pandemic

Exigir al Concejo Municipal de Los Ángeles para que proteja a los residentes durante la pandemia

Angelenos are forced to put their health on the line simply to keep a roof over their heads. Our city councilmembers have shown great leadership in their response to this crisis so far. In this precarious time, it’s crucial that their next actions be bold, decisive, and for the good of our most vulnerable friends and neighbors.

We know that the economic and public health impacts of COVID-19 will be devastating for our most vulnerable communities. In Los Angeles, more than 60 percent of renters already spend almost a third of their household income on rent each month — and 57,000 people are without housing altogether. With the previously unthinkable restrictions that have now been placed on working Angelenos, countless more will soon be unable to stay in their homes or put food on the table.

SIGN THE HEALTHY LA PETITION to clarify specific steps Los Angeles City Council should take to address these economic hardships.

A medida que COVID-19 desencadena un estado nacional de emergencia, y una convocatoria estatal de quedarse en casa y mantenerse refugiado, muchas personas de Los Ángeles están obligados a poner su salud a riesgo simplemente para mantener un techo sobre sus cabezas. Nuestros concejales municipales hasta el momento han demostrado gran liderazgo al responder a esta crisis. Durante este momento inestable, es esencial que las siguientes acciones de ellos sean audaces, decisivas y para el bien de nuestros amigos y vecinos más vulnerables.

Sabemos que los impactos económicos y en la salud pública de COVID-19 serán devastadores para nuestras comunidades más vulnerables. En Los Ángeles, más del 60 por ciento de los inquilinos ya gastan casi un tercio de sus ingresos de su hogar en la renta cada mes – y 57,000 personas están sin vivienda por completo. Con las restricciones previamente inconcebibles que ahora se han puesto sobre los trabajadores de Los Ángeles, una cantidad innumerable de personas muy pronto no podrán quedarse en su casa ni poner alimentos sobre la mesa.

FIRME LA PETICIÓN DE HEALTHY LA (SALUDABLE LOS ÁNGELES) para aclarar los pasos específicos que el Consejo Municipal de Los Ángeles deberá tomar para abordar estas dificultades económicas.
