LOS ANGELES—Build Better L.A. has secured nearly 100,000 signatures to ensure its affordable housing measure will be on the ballot in November. To qualify for the ballot, the initiative would have needed to gather 62,000 signatures. A group of labor and affordable housing advocates are leading the initiative, and gathered signatures from Los Angeles residents through grassroots efforts and door-to-door canvasing. The significant number of signatures shows the community support for the initiative, according to organizers.
