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 leaders organized to more equitably distribute billions of dollars in Hurricane Harvey recovery funding that would otherwise be largely diverted from low-income communities.

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