Free Speech Radio News Reports on CES’ Battle Against Landlord’s Rent Only Online Policy
Free Speech Radio
Free Speech Radio News (FSRN) reports on CES’ campaign to oppose a landlord’s attempt to forces their tenants to pay their rent only online. FSRN is an independently produced half hour daily national and international radio news program focusing on peace and social justice issues in the US and around the world.
This report forces on opposition being waged to the rent only online policy by the Woodlake Manor Tenants Association whose members joined CES. Woodlake Manor is located in South Los Angeles, but the owner, Jones and Jones Management Group, has instituted it rent only online policy to it thousands of tenants living in over 30 buildings it owns throughout the Los Angeles area.
In addition, a law suit has been filed by Bet Tzedek Legal Services on behalf of the Woodlake Manor tenants, California State Senator Ted Lieu has introduced a bill, SB 1055, in the state legislature that would prohibit the rent online policy throughout California and Los Angeles City Council Member Paul Krekorian has introduced similar legislation for the City of Los Angeles.
