New Beginnings: Park Grove

September 10, 2013 by Admin

SAJE leader Joey dropped by SAJE to share good news! His organizing efforts are taking effect and repairs are underway at Park Grove! Since starting to organize his neighbors, Joey was able to get an LA Housing inspector into their apartment. This time, the inspector told the landlord that he needed to fix all of the unhealthy conditions he was forcing the tenants to live in.

Joey was able to obtain new sinks, repaired walls, fixed plumbing and also got a fridge repaired for a neighbor who undergoes dialysis. Joey’s next goal is to get everyone’s apartment’s fixed at this property and then start organizing other apartment’s in his neighborhood.
