The Community of East LA wants to #SaveElPino & Build a Green Space. It’s under threat from a developer who plans 2 Buildings as early as 2022.
The goal of the #saveelpino movement is to not only save the tree, but to remind gentrifiers that community comes first. So how do we Save El Pino? We must declare the infamous tree as a Historic Landmark so that it remains untouchable for the next 80 years. The application itself costs approximately $4,500, which means that the only way we can be successful in raising funds is with community support. Please click on the How to Help link on our menu for more information. We can’t wait to Save El Pino together and create a green space for future generations.
