For more than 25 years, we have worked side-by-side with our neighbors to advocate for tenant rights, healthy housing, and equitable development.

MissionWe believe the fate of Los Angeles’ neighborhoods should be decided by those who dwell there, and that all people have a right to the city. We help community members organize and advocate for themselves, their families, and their communities for safe and healthy housing.

Together, we are building a movement for change that addresses the root causes of structural oppression and the creation of a more just economy for all.

Our Mission

SAJE builds community power and leadership for economic justice.

Our Vision

SAJE’s vision is for a society where everyone has access to green space, reliable and safe transit, economic security, and healthy, secure and affordable housing, and where the elements of the built environment necessary to survival are publicly supported infrastructure and not commodities. We believe we can realize this vision by engaging all people, especially those who have been socially marginalized, in decisions about the fate of their city, regardless of their class, race, gender, or any social privileges.
