Echo Park -- The neighborhood's two main parks were the site of political activism today.
In Elysian Park, several vintage squad cars were on display at A Blue Lives Matter event in support of police.
Meanwhile, at Echo Park Lake, Ktown for All, a group that advocates on behalf of the homeless, set up a mock voting booth as part its "We Got The Power" event focused on the issues homeless residents consider the most important in the Nov. 3 election
Come on down to Echo Park Lake at the Lady of the Lake statue where things are just kicking off! We have a mock voting booth, power-up station, hygiene table, food and snacks, cold water, sign painting, and more! #WeGotThePower pic.twitter.com/FtjZwi56DA— Ktown for All 💜❤ (@KtownforAll) October 17, 2020
