Housing Justice

When basic shelter is a profit stream, a “booming” housing market means rising rents, displaced communities, deepened racial disparities, and hot nights on the street for tenants. The Housing Justice Commission Working Group was formed because these can’t be treated as isolated issues: they’re products of a system that lets a class of landlords accumulate wealth at the expense of renters by design. Our work to fight this exploitation and guarantee safe housing for all includes tenant organizing training, canvassing, and more. If you’re interested, join one of our meetings to learn more.
