ACT-LA co-anchors Build Better LA, a coalition of labor and affordable housing advocates that aims to ensure the creation and preservation of critically needed affordable housing and local, high-wage jobs for Angelenos.
Build Better LA successfully passed Measure JJJ in November 2016 to ensure that Los Angeles residents benefit from the current development boom in Los Angeles by requiring low-cost housing be included in developments getting zone changes and General Plan Amendments. The new law also requires that these developments create livable wage jobs for local residents who need them the most. JJJ will safeguard families at risk of displacement by preserving the City’s affordable housing stock through replacement of rent stabilized units.
As the City of LA updates its 35 Community Plans, Measure JJJ will be a tool that advocates can use to ensure the plans promote affordability and access for the City’s low-income communities.
