About Us

SAJE is a 501c3 non-profit organization in South Los Angeles. Since 1996 SAJE has been a force for economic justice in our community
focusing on tenant rights, healthy housing, and equitable development.

SAJE has taken many notorious slumlords to court, has established a land trust, and helped implement innovative popular education programs. We run a regular tenant clinic, help connect local residents to jobs, and fight for community benefits regarding future development through private agreements and public policies.

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.
