Dear Partners & Allies, November 24th. 2016
We here at FLTS are still in the wake of our current political situation.
We are having discussions around racism, misogyny, xenophobia, Islamophobia, climate change denials and how it will impact our work to organize communities around access to equitable resources to help them thrive.
And as a team, we want to ensure you, we are ready and willing to continue the equity work we have engaged in the last 8 years, and are ready and willing to fight harder.
We are gearing up to fight for the environment, for environmental justice, and planning to organize and mobilize with allies and with our communities to ensure they feel safe, empowered and protected.
We are asking you, this #givingtuesday to support our work to continue to fight for a just, equitable Los Angeles. To continue to ensure communities that have long been on the margins receive their fair share of health & wellness opportunities, access to parks, and access to healthy food options.
In the challenging times that lie ahead, we are ready and willing to fight to shade more streets, to create more water capturing opportunities that help alleviate our drought, AND create more spaces for children to play, for communities to grow. And we will fight to create these opportunities with those marginalized communities whose voice is often diminished.
So choose to take action. Choose to support creating a just and equitable Los Angeles by investing in communities that need access to greenspaces.
Choose to support From Lot to Spot.
- I believe EVERYONE should have access to healthy, safe spaces regardless of gender, color, creed or economic status.
- I believe in advancing & lifting up communities of color in all ways possible
- In the face of adversity, I want to make certain I am supporting equitable access to resources for all people
Thank you for believing in us and for supporting our work to ensure low income, communities of color have access to greenspaces and healthy food choices that they need and deserve. Our fight continues.
