Strategic Actions for a Just Economy (SAJE)
SAJE builds community leadership and power for economic justice. We believe that the fate of our city should be decided by those who dwell here because our vibrant and diverse community has been built by all of us. We belong to the United Neighbors in Defense Against Displacement Coalition (UNIDAD) which supports equitable development in South LA.

The UNIDAD (United Neighbors in Defense Against Displacement) Coalition supports development without displacement. As we emerge from a devastating pandemic that hit neighborhoods like South LA the hardest, it is more important than ever that we leverage public land for the public good. UNIDAD will educate and mobilize South LA residents to support community led development on public land that creates affordable housing, good jobs, green space, clean air, small business opportunities, and better, healthier neighborhoods for the same neighbors.

This project will prevent homelessness caused by illegal evictions by connecting tenants at risk of displacement to newly-available eviction prevention resources. The new LA County Eviction Defense program provides low-income tenants access to a free lawyer for eviction cases. SAJE and JustFix will create an online tool that links eligible tenants to these resources and conduct an outreach/education campaign informing tenants. In the coronavirus era, online resources are critical to making essential services available to the most vulnerable.
