I Wish the City Would Help the Homeless

Dolores Aparicio

I sell leather accessories in the Fashion District. My commute is long, but I wouldn’t want to live in the middle of L.A. It’s too polluted and everything is too fast-paced. Arcadia is beautiful. We have lots of tree-lined streets.

I wish the city would do something to help the homeless. I walk by Skid Row every day, and it breaks my heart to see children growing up around drugs, prostitution, and so much violence.
