Atlanta tenants are facing harassment and retaliation. Will you stand with us?

Trestletree Village is a project-based Section 8 housing complex in Atlanta, GA. Trestletree tenants are organizing to demand better treatment from Monroe Group, the company that owns and manages the property. For years, tenants have faced:
 

  • Excessive and unfounded lease violations
  • Near-uninhabitable living conditions, including mold and sewage issues
  • Ignored maintenance requests
  • Eviction threats

After a successful resident rally on September 24, Trestletree management/Monroe Group retaliated by banning the Housing Justice League, Parkside Equity Coalition and other non-tenant tenant organizers from the property. They also asked Kingdom Life Church to no longer serve the Trestletree neighborhood through their food pantry.
 
These are blatant violations of U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) policy, and Monroe Group will face consequences for their actions.
