AHJ was formed to address the nation's affordable housing and displacement crisis, advance the rights of tenants, respond to harmful public policy actions, and shift the narrative from housing as a commodity to a human right. Our primary strategy to achieve these goals is building and supporting the infrastructure needed for a powerful, grassroots-led housing justice movement.


A safe, quality, and affordable place to live is a fundamental human right. To ensure that all people can live healthy lives, we must guarantee access to a safe, healthy, and affordable home, free from the threat of displacement.



The Housing Justice National Platform was co-created by AHJ to build power and win victories for housing justice all across the country.
