|Skid Row Neighborhood Watch Walk
First Wednesday of the month @ 6 PM
The walk begins and ends at the courtyard of the Midnight Mission at 601 S. San Pedro St. The courtyard entrance faces 6th St.
We assemble at 6 and depart at approximately 6:15.
Skid Row walks are postponed until further notice.
What and Why:
CCEA is working closely with Councilmember Jan Perry, The City Attorney, Skid Row residents, LAPD, state and county legislators, service providers and a multitude of other stakeholders to affect positive policy changes for our community. Our monthly walks have successfully garnered the attention of federal, state, county and city legislators who are all working on various solutions for the inhumane conditions that exist in Skid Row.
First and foremost is our call for public safety - all people who live Downtown, and especially Skid Row residents, deserve a crime-free, gang-free, drug-free and empowered community to call their own.
LAHSA workers also join us on our monthly walks, conducting outreach to those living on the streets, and offering immediate van transportation for any individual seeking shelter and/or services.
Regardless of where you live, work or visit Downtown, please come and make a difference. We need you to stand strong with us as we call for an improved quality of life in Skid Row.
Secure parking is available in the Midnight Mission's underground parking structure. The entrance is on San Pedro St. just south of 6th St.
Please tell the parking attendant that you are there for the Neighborhood Walk.
The walk will cover approximately 10-12 blocks. Comfortable shoes are strongly recommended.
Several LAPD officers from Central Division as well as our BID security officers will accompany us on our walk.
TV and/or print media may accompany us on our walks.
If you have questions, please feel free to call or e-mail us. We hope to see you there. Thank you to all who have joined us for previous walks.
