People gathered at the Los Angeles courthouse to demand the cancellation of rents. They have been affected by the pandemic and left without work. The community came together: there were vendors, people from different branches of work that were affected. They sang and there were faces of hope, the cars honked as they passed by in a show of support. They walked around the courthouse with banners, with messages saying "having a roof is a right". People raised their voices with chants accompanied by cultural groups and local musicians playing mariachi and son jarocho music.

To tell you the truth, it gave me great emotion to see all the people united, the music of my community with songs of struggle in a mix with people raising their voices. We show part of our cultures even in social struggles. — Eva Garcia
