JOIN THE #HOUSINGJUSTICE MOVEMENT

In New York State, the real estate industry prioritizes profits over the safety and security of the 50% of our residents who are renters. This results in half of the state’s tenants being unable to afford their rent and over 90,000 people in homeless situations on any given day. This year, we were a leader in the win for historic rent protection legislation. However, we are fighting for MORE! Join us in our #HousingJustice campaign against tenant abuse, homelessness, environmental violence, and racist housing policies.
