Tenants protest against ‘displacement’ by ELACC

As new affordable housing will begin development in Boyle Heights, some existing tenants say they are being evicted to allow construction. They’re asking the organization building the new site for guarantees that they’ll have a home once construction is completed. “We will be asking ELACC at that meeting [to] give us the right to return as part of the relocation package. A guarantee in writing that we can return no matter what.” Find out more on Boyle Heights Beat.
