Celebrating a great City for Everyone

Fists and hands in the air
Celebrating a Great City!!!
This week has been a fabulous step forward with Disability Pride and Culture, better access to Affordable Public Transportation  Fares and Para-transit! 

Thank you City Council for all your support unanimously voting on getting rid of the 1 km restriction. To see video footage of the story....

City Council also voted and gave the go ahead to help make software so all the City departments can work together, share information to help make the applying for low-income subsidies programs like the low-income transit pass easier!  A special thank you to Councillor Brian Pincott and Councillor Richard Pootmans who presented notices of motions to make better transportation possible! 

And what an amazing day we had with International Day of Disabled Persons, Pride: Powered by PechaKucha!  View Photos courtesy of Denise Young.

  1. As a tenant, there are certain rights you should be aware of to protect yourself.
    California renters rights give you protection against landlords who wish to abuse the system.
    Unfortunately, many tenants do not take the time to understand their rights and get taken advantage of.
    The following explores some of the most important and most relevant rights tenants have in California.
    This is only a small listing of information that can be found at our site to protect yourself.
    Renters rights in Los Angeles are largely the same as in other California cities,
    so this information is relevant regardless of where you live. First of all,
    a landlord can never discriminate against a tenant. A landlord cannot refuse a room to or harass a tenant based on race,
    color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, immigration status, religion, national origin,
    disability, or if they are pregnant or have children. Landlords must also allow all service animals,
    regardless of pet policies within the building. Your landlord also cannot try to retaliate against you if you take action against his unlawful actions. For example,
    if you file a claim with an agency about your landlord, he cannot legally raise your rent, evict you,
    or stop providing services because of it.
