The funeral and march will allow advocates and the public to mourn the loss of Parker Center, which advocates had proposed retrofitting and repurposing to create over 700 units of housing for homeless and other at-risk individuals.

However, a petition for a temporary restraining order (TRO) filed by housing advocates to halt demolition of the building was denied two weeks ago, paving the way for City Hall and the City Council to proceed with their out-of-touch plans to build a $900 million luxury office tower exclusively for city workers at a time when over 53,000 individuals in Los Angeles Countyincluding over 31,000 in the City of Los Angelesremain homeless.

L.A. ranks second-to-last among major metro areas in providing homeless shelter.
