Action to Support Lincoln Heights Residents Facing Eviction
Saturday, February 11 at 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM PST
2919 N Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90031
Join CCED on Saturday February 11th at 2919 N. Broadway in Lincoln Heights. The residents are at risk of being harassed out of their homes and have decided to hold a public action outside the building to tell their story and raise awareness. We invite allies and members of the community to attend this event to show solidarity for the residents\' struggle.
Long-time Lincoln Heights residents are being threatened with forced removal from their homes. Owners are using dirty tactics, even against the disabled and seniors. At 2919 N. Broadway, 75% of the residents have been driven out. NBK Realty Management took advantage of renters not knowing their legal rights, forcing them to sign bad agreements. This stripped the tenants of their rights to proper compensations and relocation fees, saving the landlord tens of thousands of dollars. At 1907 Johnston St., most residents facing eviction are elderly, some well into their 80s, with nowhere affordable to go.

Don\'t let illegal evictions happen to you. We are holding this event to share lessons we have learned in our ongoing fight.

While we cannot guarantee the venue is scent-free as it is a public outdoor space, we encourage attendees to refrain from wearing or using scented fragrances, perfumes, lotions, hair gel, deodorant, etc, and if washing clothes to wear beforehand, not using fabric softener or fragranced dryer sheets. The best is to wash clothes with baking soda and scent free laundry detergent. You can read more here: http://astbaymeditation.org/accessibility/scentfree.html.
