HELP SUPPORT the State of California’s nomination of the Watts Towers as a UNESCO World Heritage site and protect the vital history and culture of Watts.
Join the people of Watts and art lovers from all over the world to stop the City from destroying a major cultural landscape and undermining our efforts to have the Watts Towers accepted as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Disregarding appropriate sites for needed housing, the City of Los Angeles has fast-tracked a 5-story development project by the Metrolink tracks that will split the Watts community in two and block access to and spoil appreciation of the monumental masterpiece of “outsider art”, the Watts Towers – the community’s only internationally known tourist site.
Join us in urging the City to create the community-planned Watts Cultural Crescent as a green park to link the Towers to the 103rd Street train station.
