West Valley Detention Center class action settlement
If you were housed in the Alternative Lifestyle Tank of the West Valley Detention Center (a San Bernardino County jail) between October 22, 2012 and March 31, 2018, you may be entitled to receive money.
On Tuesday, March 7, Los Angeles voted on two crucial measures that would help the tens of thousands of Angelenos who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless.
L.A. County: Vote Yes on Measure H
If passed, Measure H would fund proven ways to reduce and prevent homelessness, including physical and mental health care, emergency housing, job counseling, substance abuse treatment and short-term rental subsidies. It calls for a quarter-cent sales tax increase, but that small amount per person in the county could bring thousands of individuals and families out of permanent homelessness.
Measure H wins
L.A. City: Vote No on Measure S
Measure S is a regressive and deceptive measure that would impose a moratorium on building developments that need exemptions from land-use rules. This would effectively stop almost every effort to establish desperately needed affordable housing in L.A. This city needs more housing, not less!
