APH Campaign Against Proposed L.A. Hotels Homeless Housing Mandate

By: Vishnu Rageev R | Published: October 25, 2023

A NEW COMMITTEE named Angelenos Protecting Hospitality has been formed to rally people against the proposed policy requiring all Los Angeles hotels to accommodate the homeless alongside regular paying guests. In close coordination with Los Angeles voters and stakeholders, APH will launch a substantial paid advertising campaign to inform LA voters about the potential risks of this measure, the APH said in a statement.

Los Angeles residents are set to vote in March 2024 on whether to implement this as part of a measure proposed by Unite Here, a labor union representing hotel workers in the Los Angeles area. If passed, this policy would make Los Angeles the first city in America to house both the homeless and paying guests together.

APH will collaborate with community organizations to inform Los Angeles voters about the detrimental impacts of Unite Here’s ballot initiative, the statement added.
