FBV Responds to VCH About Spreading Misinformation Regarding Venice Median Project


In early September, 2017, Becky Dennison, Executive Director of developer Venice Community Housing Corporation (“VCHC”), published a piece on Venice Update (and on the VCHC website) asserting that Venice Vision is spreading “misinformation” about the Venice Median Mega-Plex through “flyers and websites without contact information” and urging Venice residents to get their information on the project solely from the VCHC website.

Venice Vision is in no way opposed to providing services – or housing – for the homeless in Venice. We are proud of Venice’s heritage as a welcoming and warmhearted community, and believe Venice has an important role to play in addressing homelessness; however we do not believe we should be the sole area of concentration.

All Venice Vision materials – including our flyers and our websites ( www.fightbackvenice.org and www.venicevision.org) – contain contact information. Becky Dennison herself contacted us about our materials on or about the same day she submitted her piece to Venice Update claiming that our flyers and website had been “distributed … without contact information.”

We have never engaged in “spreading misinformation”. Our goal is to provide as much reliable information as possible so that sound decisions will be considered for the future of our community and our generations to come. We invite you to visit our websites and join our mailing lists for updates and correct information on this and other topics at Venicevision.org and Fightbackvenice.org.

In the slides below we address each area VCHC has claimed that we have been ‘misleading’.
