It seems that words fail us sometimes. Words like “homeless” too easily lead to words like “drugs”, “safety risk”, and “violence” — but the problem is this: we are faced with a huge and complicated challenge in Los Angeles. We need the entire city, including our K-town, to step up and do as much as possible — until it hurts - to help. Families, children, disabled veterans, and immigrants need help. Koreatown has space owned by the city. The community needs to support the city with offers of help in social services, in health care, in mental health services. The City needs to support the resources in Koreatown by offering funding and other resources to allow this crisis to be an opportunity for demonstrating that we truly do live in the City of Angels.
