Esperanza promotoras and many others attend action at City Hall.

A cohort of nine community-based organizations and community residents rallied around City Hall on Thursday to celebrate Human Rights Day 2009. On December 10, 1948, members of the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Sixty-one years later, in single file form, two hundred people marched through the farmer’s market and encircled City Hall. We called for our mayor and the City Council to prioritize one main issue: that housing become an inalienable right for Angelinos.
