COMMUNITY OUTREACH/TENANT ORGANIZER

The Coalition for Economic Survival is seeking qualified people to organize tenants in at-risk affordable housing. The Los Angeles area has one of the most severe housing crisis in the nation. Landlords, in efforts to obtain more profit and higher rents at minimum cost, are constantly attempting to illegally evict tenants, refusing to make needed repairs, converting and destroying affordable housing, and opting out of federal rent subsidy programs.

A spectacular opportunity to become part of a team of extremely effective organizers who are helping to obtain more concrete victories that directly benefit low income and working people of Los Angeles.

The tenant organizer will identify organizing situations and tenant leaders, and develop tenant associations, campaigns and other efforts to preserve affordable housing and secure tenants' rights.

The Coalition for Economic Survival, Los Angeles' leading tenants' rights organization, has been organizing people for economic and social justice for more than 48 years.
