Since 1996, SAJE has been a force for economic justice in Los Angeles. We focus on tenant rights, healthy housing, and equitable development, especially in our community of South Central LA. We believe that the fate of city neighborhoods should be decided by those who dwell there, and we collaborate with community-based organizations to ensure fair, replicable, and sustainable economic and social change.
