Where is OneLife LA on January 21st, 2017? CLICK HERE for more information
Exposition Park at USC. It’s beautiful, historic and very easy to get to! Metro drops you off just around the corner at the USC/Expo (Trousdale) stop on the Expo Line, parkings lots are all over (cash only!). We’ll be right in front of the Coliseum, where the 1984 Olympic Games were held and Pope Saint John Paul II celebrated mass.
The Requiem Mass is still taking place at 5 p.m. at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.
Why has the location changed?
Just to bring you up to speed a little more on the recent venue change, we’ve only just been made aware – thanks to the collaboration and consultation with our city and law enforcement officials – that the original spot for OneLife LA in front of City Hall will be overflowing with various other groups holding non-permitted demonstrations before we even get there. Although we had permits and these other demonstrations aren’t directly related to OneLife LA, the safety of our attendees is our highest priority, and combined with increasing concerns about access and event setup we’ve moved the event to a nearby venue.
We’re excited to be holding OneLife LA 2017 at Exposition Park, offering us a convenient and easily accessible venue. We’ll be right in front of the Coliseum, where they 1984 Olympic Games were held and Pope Saint John Paul II celebrated mass.
As you can imagine, a decision like this is never taken lightly and we thank you for your understanding and flexibility. See on January 21st to affirm the beauty and dignity of every human life!
Why was it so last minute?
The response to the national situation has been escalating in recent weeks, so the increasing number of demonstrators in downtown LA have only come to light to law enforcement and city officials in recent days.
