SAJE’s tireless efforts on behalf of economic democracy, neighborhood integrity and tenants’ rights help make L.A. a happier, more just place. We take slumlords to court, and work to find positive solutions to conflicts between institutions (from AEG to USC to the LAUSD) and low-income city residents, negotiating landmark agreements that benefit all participants.
In partnership with other organizations, from churches to labor unions, we do our utmost to make sure the fate of city neighborhoods is decided by those who live there.
