Review for Palante Harlem Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

There are not enough wonderful words I could say about PA'LANTE. What an amazing, TRUE, non-profit that is actually doing what it sets out to do.

I started working with PA'LANTE when I was fighting a predatory landlord that had purchased my apartment building, as well as 5 others from my previous owner. The immediately started threatening tenants, harassing them, and illegally performing gut renovations of units. I and a group of us had started a tenant organization, learning from what we could from reading online. But then we hit a wall, no traction. When we finally were at our witts end we were introduced to PA'LANTE.

Immediately we got some teeth to our organization. PA'LANTE worked with us, organized us, got us in touch with the right people to really start to fight. They helped us get a press conference organized in front of one of our buildings with all the major networks there. With that press our landlord finally started to listen. From there we were able to also get our landlord on the watch list of the city, effectively putting them to a stop.

Inspired by all the work I now volunteer there every week, and really feel a part of the "family" of this amazing organization. Every single one of the members of our family knows that we are all in this together, and we will always stand side by side no matter what! What a great organization that I am proud to be a part of!

I cannot begin to express how much help PA'LANTE Harlem has been to myself, the people of the community, everyone they deal with. They go above and beyond to help protect tenants rights! They helped organize my tenant association and have gotten me involved with helping out other people in my same situation.
