The Alliance for Housing Justice is powered by Action Center on Race & the Economy, Center for Popular Democracy, Housing Justice for All NY, Housing Now! CA, Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, Liberation in a Generation, National Housing Law Project, PolicyLink, Poverty & Race Research Action Council, PowerSwitch Action, Public Advocates, and the Right to the City Alliance.
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.
