Housing

All people should have the right to a safe, stable home to build better futures for themselves and their families.

We advocate for and with people who are most impacted by injustice in the housing system to ensure they can access safe and affordable housing, can participate in decision-making about housing in their communities, and are protected from discrimination based on their race and other identities.

Shelter is not only a basic human need, it is also critical to people’s ability to pursue and attain economic stability.

Housing is fundamental to achieving economic stability, better health outcomes, and thriving families and communities.
