...And Much More
Chinatown Community for Equitable Development (CCED)
is an all volunteer, multi-ethnic, intergenerational organization based in Los Angeles Chinatown that builds grassroots power through organizing, education, and mutual help.
Why Equitable Development in Chinatown?
Chinatown in Los Angeles — a longtime gateway community for immigrants — is undergoing rapid gentrification. It once provided a place where those who have recently arrived can adapt in an environment that affords them access to basic necessities in their own language. Today, Chinatown is in danger of becoming a home for only those with higher incomes and access to wealth.
Rent is Too Damn High!
Los Angeles is now one of the least affordable rental markets in the country, based on the portion of a renter's income that goes to pay rent. We want stronger rent control policies that prevent further rent increases, and can encompass all buildings.
We Need Community Resources
We need good hospitals, public schools, public parks and small businesses, such as affordable, culturally relevant markets and laundromats that serve, hire, support and sustain non-English speaking low-income immigrant families.
