Strategic Actions for a Just Economy received a grant from the Open Society Foundation's Communities Against Hate initiative, which "supports organizations that are grappling with the spike in hate incidents in the United States over the last several months" as explained by a white paper dated June 22 2017.[1]

It continues:

"Our local grants, which range from $15,000 to $150,000, aim to support, protect, and empower those who are targets of hateful acts and rhetoric, and to bolster communities’ resilience and ability to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future. We are making grants on a rolling basis, and there are a few more in process. A complete list will be published on the Open Society Foundations website when all of the grants have been issued."


SAJE works in coalition with other community groups and local organizations.

We fight for healthy housing with the Healthy Housing Collective, which includes Esperanza Community Housing and St. John’s Well Child and Family Center.

We fight against displacement with the United Neighbors in Defense Against Displacement (UNIDAD) coalition, which includes non-profits, churches, and small businesses in South Los Angeles. As part of our work with UNIDAD we convene the Figueroa Corridor Jobs Coalition, which oversees a pipeline for local residents from job-readiness programs to living wage jobs in the community.

We are one of the founders and co-hosts of the Alliance for Community Transport – Los Angeles (ACT-LA) coalition, which is fighting for legislation that would require city-wide equity provisions in transit planning.

We are a founding member of the Right to the City Alliance, a national organization composed of dozens of place-based community organizations fighting for equitable land use.

Right to the City

The Right to the City Alliance: Initiated by the Miami Workers Center, SAJE and Tenants and Workers United in 2007, the Right to the City Alliance brought together organizations from across the country that were organizing against gentrification in working class communities of color.
