LA Tiny Houses for Homeless are Being Swept Up By City TheLipTV


LA City officials have called for the confiscation of tiny homes from homeless people in South Los Angeles. Many of the street encampments have been donated by Elvis Summer, who has built and donated more than 37 homes and is going ahead of the sweeps to move the homes to safe locations. Councilman Curren Price, who represents the neighborhood, has claimed the houses pose health and safety risks. Some see the structures as a cheap, safe alternative to having homeless people sleeping on the streets, while others claim they are a cover for lawlessness and criminal activity. LA is facing a $2 billion homeless problem and has offered up no permanent solutions other than shelters, many of which are full or are rejected by homeless community members. Sasha Kai Parker and Mark Sovel discuss LA’s attack on the homeless on the Lip News.
