From taking action to get the city to invest in our neighborhoods to fighting for fair housing policies and services across the city, LA ACCE Action members are making their voices heard!
Where we Organize:
In Los Angeles, ACCE Action is organizing through the city, with chapters in City Council Districts 7, 8, 9, 10, and 15. We also have a citywide Home Defenders League Chapter taking on housing justice campaigns.
- Worker Justice: LA ACCE members celebrated a win in the spring of 2015 and continue to roll out victories: workers in both the city and unincorporated county areas are getting a raise in the minimum wage to $15 by 2020. We're not done fighting, our members know that we need stronger worker protections. This is why ACCE LA joined in the hunger strike of women workers fighting for the minimum wage, organized and participated in dozens of actions to stand with workers organizing in their workplaces, and is focusing its energy on winning a strong paid sick days policy for all LA workers.
- Housing Justice: We’ve long been leading the fight to save homes from foreclosures and the fight against displacement of long term residents in our communities. Though many homes have been saved and communities preserved, the fight is not over. Much of our organizing has been centered in areas facing increased rents and continued displacement. We continue to fight for changes in housing policies to keep our communities affordable so we can stay here for the long term.
- Fix LA: We are always pushing for services such as tree-trimming and potholes repairs in our neighborhoods. Too often the city takes care of wealthy neighborhoods and neglects our communities. That’s why we are a leading partner in the Fix LA Coalition, where community and union partners have unified their voice to demand that the city reinvest in our neighborhood services! Using the idea of “bargaining for the common good”, where unions make demands for the whole community in their contracts, and taking action regularly, we are well on the way to winning the kind of investments we want to see!
- Education: At Maya Angelou community school, a public high school that we fought to win, we are organizing to implement a set of important community-based policies, including a strong restorative justice discipline program. We continue to organize with parents and teachers, as well as neighbors around the school, to make sure our children are getting a strong, quality education.
