- About the Shalom Tenants Alliance
- Tenants of the Shaloms have been defending their rights and fighting to keep their homes for at least a decade, facing frequent court battles and dealing with various city and state agencies. The Cooper Square Committee and Metropolitan Council helped bring together tenants from several Shalom buildings to share information and coordinate their efforts and strategies. The Alliance came together in earnest in July 2003 with the launch of a website (www.shalomslumlords.org), which has helped put numerous tenants in touch with the Alliance and helped Shalom tenants realize, “We’re not alone.” The Shalom Tenants Alliance has continued building a multi-neighborhood tenant campaign and a stronger support system. It is now working with elected officials to prompt investigations into some of the most severe issues, while also collaborating with other tenant coalitions in mutual support network addressing broader issues affecting tenants in the city. Shalom tenants have conducted extensive research, compiled documentation spanning a 30-plus-year period; hired attorneys; prepared reports for the Attorney General (with the help of Union Local 32BJ), and initiated audits with the New York City Departments of Buildings and Housing Preservation and Development. These efforts are only the beginning.
