AFSCME Members, “Parks Save” Coalition Fight to Save LA's Parks

The press corps was out in force on the steps of Los Angeles City Hall recently, where LA City Employee Unions represented by Council 36 joined conservationists and Council members Eric Garcetti and Tom LaBonge and developer/philanthropist Steve Soboroff to demand the protection of Los Angeles’ parks. Budget challenges have led to the relentless slashing of parks and recreation funding in a City already severely lacking in urban green spaces.  The “Parks Save” Coalition called on lawmakers to protect remaining park programs from the budget axe.  Other groups in the Coalition include the Sierra Club, the Trust for Public Land, and the Weingart Foundation.
