SAJE 20th Anniversary Greatest Hits

SAJE (Strategic Actions for a Just Economy) is gathering our friends and allies to celebrate our 20th Anniversary at a special event on August 25th at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles!  As part of our celebration we are going to honor these three people who have been very important in SAJE’s history:
·         Gilda Haas, the founding Executive Director of SAJE. It is thanks to Gilda’s vision, energy, and wisdom that SAJE exists today. Gilda is also the co-founder of UCLA’s Community Scholars program and is the founder of Dr. Pop, an online popular education platform that focuses on economic justice and is a source for “complicated things, easily explained.

·         Martha Saucedo, Vice President of External Affairs at Anschutz Entertainment Group and current chair of the Central City Association of Los Angeles.  Martha has been a key partner in SAJE’s work with the Figueroa Corridor Jobs Coalition.  Together SAJE and AEG have created a jobs pipeline that has placed thousands of local residents into good jobs at the Staples Center, and Martha has been instrumental in making this unique partnership successful.

·         Gloria Serrano, SAJE Advisory Board member, and a longtime SAJE community activist, leader, and organizer.

We very much hope you can join us as we celebrate this significant milestone and these amazing women!
