ACCE Los Angeles Rapid Responders Successfully Stop Illegal Lockouts of Elderly Tenants

In November 2020, 71-year-old ACCE member Marta Amaya was illegally locked out of her south Los Angeles home after coming home one day from grocery shopping. When she tried to enter through a window, she was struck in the face with the window by an unknown assailant. ACCE-LA emergency responders organized a rally and press conference outside of Ms. Amaya's home on Nov. 11. Responders called LAPD who got the landlord to let Ms. Amaya back inside to retrieve her belongings.
