The Venice Resistance is a progressive non-profit advocating for the rights of all people under the principles of a representative democracy. We hold all elected officials accountable to enact compassionate public policy that puts our people and our planet first. We reflect the inclusive nature of our shared and diverse community.
Our goals are simple. We want to elevate Venice, CA to become a self-sustaining and model community for Los Angeles and the rest of the country. To start, we're kicking off our community programs with an Alley Cleanup and welcoming Ted Lieu in an intimate Q&A session this fall.
Our long term goal is to incorporate Venice as a city. Parking is the number one revenue driver for the city of Los Angeles and our goal is to keep that revenue within our community - to build better schools and help take care of our homeless population.
In doing so, we are partnering with many local organizations including The Indivisible Movement, Black Lives Matter, The Women's March, Venice Neighborhood Council, The ACLU of Southern California, Venice Family Clinic, West LA Democratic Club, Heal the Bay, Surfrider Association, and the Venice Chamber of Commerce.
We are your neighbors and your friends. We marched alongside you at the Women's March and the March for Science. We felt the blow on November 9th right along with you. We took part in Pride Month and celebrated our members who painted the Brooks Ave lifeguard tower.
We're young and we're old. We're white, hispanic, black, and brown. We're gay, straight, and transgendered. We're artists. We're lawyers. We're media executives. We're engineers. We're parents. We're single. We're locals.
