Since 1996 SAJE has been a force for economic justice in our community focusing on tenant rights, healthy housing, and equitable development. We believe that the fate of city neighborhoods should be decided by those who dwell there, and we convene with other organizations to ensure this occurs in a manner that is fair, replicable, and sustainable.
