Nearly 200 gather for Public Housing Tenants Convention

On Saturday, February 19th, public housing tenants from across the city gathered at the Venice United Methodist Church to discuss current challenges facing the future of public housing in Los Angeles.

The convention was an opportunity for tenants from throughout L.A. to exchange stories of their shared frustration with public housing projects, which often include regular harassment and illegal fees on the part of project management.

However, more importantly, the meeting provided a space for tenants to collaborate on creative solutions and to inspire one another to defend public housing against the L.A. Housing Authority’s proposal to convert a number of these projects to private housing developments.
