NOlympics-LA was launched by the Los Angeles chapter’s Housing & Homelessness committee in 2017. The coalition has since expanded to include more than two dozen partner orgs based in LA and California, as well as a growing transnational movement with dozens of groups around the world.
Despite the fact that the IOC has awarded LA the bid to host the 2028 Summer Olympics, the fight isn’t over. LA’s mayor, city council, and the bid committee have all been complicit in this charade. NOlympics-LA seeks to untangle the web of undemocratic greed motivating the bid, city council, our mayor, and the IOC. We challenge their decision to place our already vulnerable communities at higher risk of death, displacement, deportation, and detention.
