Who is Defend Venice?

Defend Venice (formerly Save Venice) is a grassroots media and action movement based in Venice, CA, dedicated to promoting racial justice and defending the social and economic equity of the Venice community and its cultural forebears. We strive to empower traditional and disenfranchised residents by providing an alternative to the gentrification and Anglo-centric media and narratives that have come to dominate the area. Through our activism and media, we work tirelessly to address the challenges faced by our community, ensuring that the true spirit of Venice is preserved and celebrated for generations to come
