Equitable Economics and Housing

Answer the following five questions on equitable economics and housing issues to see which candidates for mayor most closely match the future you want to see for Los Angeles.

Question 1 of 5

Traffic violence is considered a public health crisis by many state and local officials. City programs and plans aimed at making streets safer, including Vision Zero and Mobility Plan 2035, have not been effective, especially for low-income Angelenos and in Black and Brown communities. What is the most important and impactful step the city can take as part of a strategy to make the streets safer for pedestrians and cyclists?

Question 2 of 5

Due to the city's emergency decree, rent increases are currently not allowed for tenants living in the city’s rent-controlled housing. But before the pandemic, Los Angeles generally allowed annual rent increases between 3% and 8%, depending on inflation. Should the city alter its rent control limits, eliminate them, or keep them?
