Housing Justice


The Housing Justice campaign connects with the self-interest of residents to improve their housing conditions and stabilize Black and Latino communities, provides leadership and leadership development opportunities, and connects leaders to issue campaigns.



Our housing justice campaign aims to strengthen resident power to change systems and policy outcomes.

Most recently, our staff has been fighting alongside working-class tenants and community allies in Houston and San Antonio to address uninhabitable living conditions at apartment complexes and hold bad landlords accountable for being unresponsive to tenants’ basic needs.

Our campaign leaders are tenants and homeowners who believe that housing is a fundamental human right.
