Carlson Park was humming with activity on Sunday, April 25, 2021. There was a Tai Chi class, a birthday party, a karate dojo, and a group of volunteers looking to start a conversation on housing in Culver City.
Organizer Jason David of Culver City for More Housing (CC4MH) talked to the group about walking the neighborhoods to leave door hangers. The goal was to get more people involved in getting the city council to agendize a discussion on ending the zoning laws that promote exclusionary housing. With the motto “There is no racial justice without housing justice,” the volunteers took materials to all parts of the city to launch an awareness campaign.
Citing a ban on multi-family housing as a tool of segregation, the organization has a goal of May 10 to get on the city council agenda.
