Supporter Testimonials

Many leaders from throughout the community are stepping forward to support the project. Here are a few of them:

"The L.A. County Federation of Labor strongly supports the plan to redevelop Wyvernwood. The project will create at least 10,000 desperately needed construction-related jobs, many of which will go to local residents through the Boyle Heights Jobs Collaborative. These new jobs, together with millions of dollars in annual tax revenue to be generated, will create tremendous benefits for workers and residents in Boyle Heights."

Maria Elena Durazo
Executive Secretary-Treasurer,
L.A. County Federation of Labor

“I am pleased to support the plan for the new Wyvernwood because it really takes care of the people who live there. No one will be 'kicked out.' No one’s rent will rise above what they’d pay for their current apartment. And creating additional housing, including plenty of affordable housing, will help young people who grew up here have a place to live. This will help to create a stronger community.”

Founder and Board President, Jovenes Inc.

"For 27 years, I have seen the Wyvernwood Apartments need more and more help. I am supportive of the owners' plans to bring this new mixed-use project to the community. It ensures decent and adequate affordable housing for low-income households. I believe it will go a long way toward strengthening our families and our community. It is long….long….overdue!"

Monsignor John Moretta
Pastor, Resurrection Church

"I strongly support this major investment in the future of Boyle Heights. It is essential for the improvement of housing in the community, for the creation of multiple opportunities for new jobs, and most importantly, to give our young people a safer and healthier place to grow and develop."

Sister Jennie Lechtenberg
Founder, PUENTE Learning Center

“I wholeheartedly support the Wyvernwood redevelopment project, which will create critically important jobs and opportunities. Homeboy Industries is proud to be a partner in the Boyle Heights Jobs Collaborative, which is creating a pipeline to direct local residents into the 10,000 construction-related jobs that will be created by this project.”

"East Los Angeles has been hit incredibly hard by the economic downturn. I support this project because I know that creating plenty of affordable housing and thousands of permanent jobs and generating millions of dollars in tax revenue will make a tremendous difference to this community, particularly to our young people."
