Red Car Property Neighborhood: Saluting Labor

Ever wonder why we get so many politicians and their supporters knocking on our doors prior to competitive races?  (Think back to the 2001 City Council race for CD13.)  

The Red Car Property Neighborhood is home to many local, state, national and international labor union members and leadership, including, but not limited to, SEIU, AFSCME, UTLA, LA College Faculty Guild, SAG, AFTRA, IATSE, WGA, DGA and Teamsters. Los Angeles is a union town and Silver Lake and Echo Park are teaming with union support.

We proudly salute hard working people everywhere, not just our neighborhood.
