This fund will benefit the the legal defense to save the FBCV which is the heart of the corner properties ceremonially and legally dedicated as E. L. Holmes Square . We have been effective in our organizing thus far. However, we are in a new stage of political battle and up against big money, millionaires, and illogically apathetic political leaders.
By supporting this fund you will be a part of history when we claim victory in saving this rich historied African-American community landmark. You will also indirectly be investing in supporting the historic community that has been a driving force in helping shape the world famous Venice Beach culture . You will be investing in reinforcing inclusive community values and sending a message to our political leaders that people and community come first, and yes, the common people can be successful in holding big money and apathetic politicians accountable.
Many of us leading this fight for this community landmark are multi-generational residents of Venice, CA. In a political climate where the fight for economic and racial equity is threatened it would mean the world to us to have your contribution and support.
We have over 32, 000 signatures on our petition . If everyone invested $1 right now we would energize the defense of this historic community, site, and world-famous culture.
