We are from big cities and small towns across the country. Some of our organizations have been around for decades, others for days. Some have staff, and some are volunteer run. All of us are committed to building a bold and powerful movement that practices love, solidarity and support for one another.Sign the pledge
We are a growing movement of people who are fed up with big banks, landlords, and developers who are allowed by politicians to hike up our rents, evict us for no reason, and leave us to live in homes with bad conditions.
(almost half of the U.S. population) are renters.
spend more than half of our income on rent.
of us are behind on our rent payments.
Most of us can’t afford to live comfortably. We pay too much for rent or we’re facing the threat of eviction or foreclosure.
We are tired of our children and our elders being removed from schools and cut off from the communities that give us security, strength, and love.
Despite all of the challenges — from rent hikes to racist violence — we’ve seen first-hand how listening to one another, fighting for each other, and building power together, breaks us free from the unfair pain and suffering caused by unjust housing practices.
Our vision is rooted in the belief that housing is a human right, not a commodity to maximize profit. We believe it is possible to create a just housing system in which everyone has affordable, dignified and permanent homes.
