Orange County Justice United Tenant Organizing, Hillsborough NC
 
Orange County Justice United is organizing alongside a team of low income residents and religious leaders to address the substandard living conditions in Gateway Village, a 64 unit Section 8 development in Hillsborough, NC. 
 
Residents and religious leaders have canvassed every unit in the development and held a series of community meetings to identify 13 top concerns - which include serious issues around health, safety, and inadequate management. 
 
A team of leaders presented resident demands to Gateway Village Regional Manager Debra Iafrate on Tuesday, November 2. In the coming weeks Justice United will bring the owner of the development (Robert Diedrich of Bloomfield Hills, MI) to the table for negotiation.
